Good Friday, Year A
Holy God, Holy and mighty, Holy immortal One, have mercy on us. Holy God, Holy and mighty, Holy immortal One, have mercy on us.
Our Three Days service continues tonight at the cross. Good Friday is a day where we give ourselves to the suffering and injustice of the world, and of us. The church prays for the world—the whole world. It is a day where we take a close look at suffering and power—its use and misuse and we pray. We pray, and we remember that God with us—the immanuel—remains with us through the worst that the world, and the worst that we, can do. God with us—the immanuel—remains with us and loves us in death, even as in life.
Readings: Psalm 22 † Hebrews 12:1–4 † Luke 22:14–23:56[i]
