I grew up in a Christian home.
And in all my 29 years, I had never known of a Good Friday service taking place.
Service was always a celebration - a traditional Sunday celebration of Easter.
But our church was offering an evening Good Friday service.
So tonight, for the first time, my husband and I attended a Good Friday service.
We had no idea what to expect, as today is such an important day in history.
It is observance of the day that our Lord Jesus Christ died on the cross...to forgive us for our sins and provide salvation.
So should we hear a regular sermon? Would there be a special presentation?
What does one do in remembrance of such a life-altering day in history?
Everything was perfect.
We sang a mixture of old hymns and contemporary music, remembering the Cross.
We reread the moments leading up to the Crucifixion.
We took The Lord's Supper in remembrance.
And although, we did not sing this particular hymn, my thoughts were brought to my mother's favorite hymn. How Great Thou Art.
She would sing this out of the blue. Or often humming the tune while doing housework.
My thoughts are with her today as she finally has met the Great and Glorious God. And she is spending her days continuing to praise him.
I will share with you, Carrie's version of this beautiful song on this Good Friday.
"And when I think, that God, His Son not sparing;
Sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in;
That on the Cross, my burden gladly bearing,
He bled and died to take away my sin.
Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee"
