Coming into the light

A large wooden cross, made of barn lumber and draped with cloth at the bottom, will be the only adornment on the altar at Holy Cross Lutheran Church tonight at the conclusion of the Good Friday service.

Seven candles placed on top of the cross will be extinguished one by one, as the lights go down, to symbolize the crucifixion, said pastor Daniel Guagenti .

“It definitely gives a sense of His dying and suffering for us,” he said.
