the Reproaches

Greetings.

An unusual sort of post for me. Been doing some Good Friday worship service planning – and have decided to use the Uniting Church’s sample Good Friday service in Uniting in Worship 2 this year,

I noted a week or so back that it uses the ancient tradition of the saying of the Reproaches.  This can also involved individual veneration of the cross – namely people coming to a large wooden cross amid/before the congregation and them kneeling at it or even kissing it.

Now, I’m not going with this where you might be concerned I am.  This is not about worshipping a piece of wood.  A helpful article explains things:

The full article is here.

All of this is by way of mentioning that I’ve written a really short (I mean short!) congregational sung response for a slight adaptation of the traditional Reproaches response:

cantor: Holy God
cong’n: Holy and mighty
Holy, immortal God
 have mercy on us

music score  simple mp3 backing

Grace and peace,

David
