A Good Friday service, Crucifixion and Black Death: A Seven Last Words Service of Lament, is now available for churches to download and use. It will also be shown on the Southern New England Conference Facebook page at 3 PM on Good Friday.

The Seven Last Words service will place the traditional scripture texts of Jesus’ final words from the cross in conversation with those of seven black Americans killed by police or extrajudicial actors. This pairing illustrates that just as evil seems to win a confrontation with God’s transforming will at the crucifixion of Jesus, so it sometimes seems when we consider the conditions of our contemporary world. Both lead us to deep lament on what is one of the most difficult days of the Christian year and in the life of the church.
