On Palm Sunday we used "Sunday's Comin' " in our worship service. It's an artistic representation of the crucifixion. It calls for deep reflection on the suffering of Christ and the hopeless state of his disciples. The narration by an African-American pastor brings not only a powerful cadence, but also a sense of pain, betrayal and suffering as only a descendant of slavery could. So appropriate for this Good Friday.
On Easter we are showing "Resurrection," a beautiful and artistic piece of spoken and visual word by poet Amena Brown. The word art that accompanies her voice-over reminds us of the hope, joy and life of the resurrection. It's a perfect companion for baptisms on Easter Sunday!
