        Part 1                                       Part 2
The Service of ShadowsRemembering the Story of Jesus
We suggest that you arrange a room in your home for this service of worship and remembrance.  
Place 7 candles in your room so that you may light and extinguish them easily.
As we begin our remembrance of the story of Jesus, you will be instructed when to light the candles.             
One by one, as the service continues, we will instruct you when to extinguish your candles.
The final candle will be extinguished at the very end, as the Christ Candle is extinguished. 
This service closes in quiet darkness.
The Christ Candle, now extinguished will be removed from the sanctuary, signifying the removal of Jesus from the cross
and the placement of his body in the tomb given by Joseph of Arimathea.
