Jesus' Farewell Address:
A Good Friday Service including Footwashing and Communion
This Good Friday service is themed around Jesus’ Farewell Address in John 13-17. In John’s gospel, the night of Jesus’ betrayal and arrest includes not only a final meal, but a lengthy final conversation between Jesus and his disciples. Here Jesus shares what is most deeply on his heart as he prepares for his time of suffering and death.
This service intersperses passages from the Farewell Address with music and with the participatory worship rituals of footwashing and communion. It concludes with a telling of the crucifixion narrative in word, song and silence, as well as with a final word of hope from Jesus.
