Good Friday "Tre Ore" service in Norfolk, NE


A Good Friday service exploring the last seven words of Christ while on the cross will be featured today at a church in Norfolk, Nebraska.  It's called a "Tre Ore" Service, which has significant meaning.  Tre Ore stands for "three hours".  Church leaders at Christ The Servant Lutheran say beginning at Noon, which was the time of Christ's execution, they will hold a series of 20 minute smaller services.  They will continue until 3pm which was the time of Christ's death.  Over the span of that three hours, each of the services will focus on one of the seven last words of Christ and focus on His passion, emotion and experience.  It will also relate to attendees and how they live out those passions and emotions in their own lives.  While everyone of all denominations is welcome to come for the entire three hours, there will be a period of about 3 to 5 minutes between each service which will allow people to either come and go or to stay and reflect on the message.
