Here is the outline for a Tenebrae service reflecting on the shadows of the cross.  If your looking for some creative ideas for your tenebrae service, this past year we found it worked really well to use a series of videos created by ‘The Skit Guys’.  These videos highlight a few different perspectives on the events of the crucifixion and really help people to see it in a new light.  We decided to make sure people had context and understanding we would read the scripture before each video.

The video comes in sections which we used in our service. Here is the full 9 minute video. You can purchase it at Worship House Media.
