Memorable Good Friday Morning

I've got nine services from Wed of Holy Week to the last service on Easter Morning. Once in a while something unusual happens.

This morning, service at St. Petri at 8:00am. Well, we've had some raccoons living under the church during the winter. This week we were able to put out some traps. One was caught in a trap this morning. And it was not amused.

"Pastor! Do you have your gun with you?"

"Of course."

Tenebrae is a service of quiet contemplation. The strepitus is supposed to be at the end of the service.

Well, the younger kids will remember the loudest noise before the service began. We still have a couple more destructive raccoons to catch.

Blessed Easter to you all.

Great idea. Blanks will add a little flash to the strepitus. We are so upholstered here I am looking for something to slam that will actually make a noise. :-)
