Overview

This gripping tenebrae worship drama confronts your congregation with the powers of darkness and destruction that were responsible for the crucifixion of Christ. Brief monlogues by Sorrow, Fear, Death, and four other shadowy personae (presented on stage or spoken from off stage), and an eerie, dimly lit stage create the somber and mournful mood that all Christians feel on this day.

This flexible worship drama requires only a few easily obtained props -- a large cross, candles, and a spotlight. Costumes are optional and monologues can be either spoken or read. Whether presented alone or as part of a full-length service, this moving worship experience will leave your congregation prepared to fully appreciate the joyous celebration of Easter morning.

David E. Ridenhour serves Pilgrim Lutheran Church, a congregation of the ELCA, in Lexington, North Carolina.
