A special service lead by Rev. Allyson Sawtell.
With each species going extinct, a light is extinguished. With each glacier disappearing, a light is extinguished. With each child stunted by lead poisoning, a light is extinguished. With each transgender and Native American woman murdered and missing, a light is extinguished. With each river run dry, a light is extinguished. The list goes on. And Christ is betrayed and crucified in the devastation of God’s Creation.
The story of Jesus’ Last Supper, betrayal, and crucifixion is an ancient story, played out today through our world’s multitudinous acts of violence, and environmental devastation. This Tenebrae service of candlelight and candle-extinguishing, this service of Communion and community explores entering into the shadows of Christ’s crucifixion in the devastation of Creation’s web of life.
Since the service is during dinner time, a light meal will be served.
