Good Friday!

Good Friday is the day that Christians all over the world observe and honor the crucifixion and death of Jesus.... this day represents the suffering of Jesus which is represented in all four of the Gospels.... this suffering also represented the week prior to the crucifixion of Jesus called the Passion of Christ.... This passion, meaning suffering, is an extreme time of pain in the life of Jesus.

Good Friday falls on the last Friday before Easter... It 's a day to show humility and reverence....many Christians observe this as a day of prayer and fasting...Crosses and chairs may be draped in black.... During Holy week, you will often see a cross either inside a church or outside draped in black or purple cloth.... The service of worship is traditionally offered between noon and 3:00 p.m., the time that coincides with the hours that Jesus hung on the cross... Good Friday is not a holiday but a religious observance,most Christian have to work and are only available to attend an evening service. Good Friday evening services are commonplace in the black church.

Often used as a somber processional for the Good Friday Service, the hymn “Calvary “is effective in helping sustain a reflective meditative mood. Ministers are traditionally robed in black for this service. This song identifies with the suffering of Christ...I love Richard Smallwood version of Calvary.
