A Tenebrae service is one of the oldest services in the Christian Church. It’s a service of light & darkness, based on the seven last words of Jesus from the Cross. As the words are heard, the sanctuary darkens until it is eventually pitch dark. A single candle re-enters symbolizing the hope of Easter Sunday. Moving spirituals and hymns are sung throughout as we “survey the wondrous cross.”
