Pilgrimage and Meditation
Saturday, April 3, 8–11 am, Sanctuary
Holy Saturday is the unique day in our church calendar where we are invited to sit with our grief and sense of loss. This is the one day when we do not proclaim the resurrection. On that first Holy Saturday, the followers of Jesus did not yet know that the resurrection was going to take place. They were likely distraught and despondent. After this past year, living in isolation, and living through racial and viral pandemics, this day may hold more significance. While we continue to wonder about the resurrection of corporate worship, all are invited to join us in a pilgrimage to and through our sanctuary this Holy Saturday. This will be a time of silent meditation, with music interspersed in the background. There will be some readings provided (see below) to guide you on a spiritual tour of our stained glass windows and to meditate upon some of the other symbols that may be found in our sanctuary. You may come at any time, and stay for as long as you need. This is a time to sit in the stillness, even as we continue to venture forth in the hope of an uncertain resurrection.
