Redding Civic Auditorium for three citywide services to celebrate Good Friday. The photo is courtesy of pastor Nathan Edwardson of The Stirring, via Facebook. Nathan and other pastors were joined by their wives as they interspersed Scripture readings and messages with uplifting music performed by worship team members from several churches.
The service was among many observances of Good Friday in the Redding area, which also included a noontime service at Little Country Church, a classic service with traditional hymns at Neighborhood Church of Redding, Stations of the Cross and meditations at various Catholic churches and other gatherings.
I was struck by how well-spoken many of the pastors' wives were at the citywide service, which goes to prove that behind every pastor there's a Godly spouse. He may do the preaching, but the ministry is shared.
Happy Easter, everyone.
