Good Friday.

Rhiannon was involved in an outdoor celebration of the Stations of the Cross in our church grounds in the lead up to Easter. Her school was depicting the Third Station where Jesus is brought before the Sanhedrin and has his clothing removed.

Rhiannon was chosen to be Jesus and was wearing the orange robes which were velcro closed down the seams for easy "tearing" off.  She was worried that it wouldn't work because on each of the practise sessions the velcro then stuck to her clothing underneath. When they did it for real during the actual ceremony it went perfectly and she and her friends were very proud.

All day it had been forecast to rain but the first drop held off until the final blessing when the heavens opened and the rain came down in torrents. A fitting end to a very beautiful and solemn ceremony.

We wish you a peaceful Easter wherever and however you are celebrating it.
