Silence on Good Friday
Today my family went to our Good Friday church service. It is a day where you think about Jesus dying on the cross for all of our sins. When I think of all the pain and suffering he did for us it is sad. We don't understand a lot of things and won't till we get to heaven some day. Then all of our questions will be answered.
At the end of the service the organist played an eerie loud sound and the pastor slammed the bible shut, in remembrance of the end of Jesus' life. Every one was supposed to walk out of the church in silence, which is a way to reflect and remember.
The pastor always goes to the cemetery across the street from the church after the service. I imagine he looks at all the names of the souls who have passed away in the last year and from years before. I've noticed he has been doing this the last few years when we were leaving church.
Sunday will be a happy day because Jesus rose from the dead and the tomb was empty. I hope all of you have a Blessed Easter and remember what the day is really about. It's not about Easter bunnies, Easter egg hunts, or just another holiday to get together.
