The Shadow of the Cross-A Contemporary Tenebrae Service Presented by the Chancel Choir of Christ United Methodist Church on Good Friday Evening, March 29, 2013 at 7 p. m. For shadows to exist, there must be light. In the case of the Passion story of our Lord, that light, as the gospel of John tells us, “Was the light of all People.” (John 1:4). of Jesus’s life including his crucifixion. But as John affirms, “ the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it.” (John 1:5 ) May we be reminded that the cross ultimately leads to the “ Father of Lights.”
