Good Friday, Friday Five

It seems almost irreverent to post a Friday Five on Good Friday, so I will try to treat it with some respect. I am still mulling over the darkness of last nights Tenebrae Service, the silence as we left was profound, and although I travelled home with others we did not speak, there was a holiness about it.....and yet we know that holiness was born of horror!

So as we enter into this darkest of days I offer you this Friday Five:

1. Of all the gospel accounts of the crucifixion, which one stands out for you, and why?

2.Do you identify with any people in this account, how does that challenge you?

3. Hymns or silence?

4. Post a poem or a quote that sums up Good Friday for you?

5.Is there a tradition you could not be without, a tradition that makes Good Friday, Good Friday?
