NEWS

FROM CENTRAL


For hundreds of years many traditional Churches have observed an evening of “darkening”, during Holy Week, called a “tenebrae” (latin = “the darkening”) service.

Although the form may vary slightly, at the core of the service is the story of God and Humanity from Creation to the Death of Jesus.  Progressively, as the story is told through readings and music, lights are lit in a darkened room…until the story turns to the betrayal, trial, torture, and crucifixion of Jesus, at which time candles are slowly extinquished.  The service ends in darkness, as the Christ Candle is not extinquished but removed from the sanctuary.

Some 30 years ago, Pastor Rick was introduced to this service by his mother, who wrote the script for her church’s tenebrae service.  Taking that script and adding some to it, writing original music and setting some familiar hymns for his small a capella choir in Seattle, it became a tradition in his church each Good Friday.

After relocating to Indiana, Pastor Rick’s TENEBRAE became a staple at the church in Anderson where he served as Music Director.  It was soon published, with orchestrations by Jay Rouse, and now churches around the country have performed this work, for the past 20 years.

This MAUNDY THURSDAY Central’s Chancel Choir will perform this work at 7:00pm.  All are welcome.
