ON A HILL TOO FAR AWAY
March 24, 2002 – 6:00 p.m.
This is the story of Calvary. It may seem that all of this occurred on a hill too far away, too far removed from our life to speak to us and our need for this great sacrifice. We must draw near, we must face what we can never understand. The cross cannot be explained away, ignored, nor stripped of its cruelty and shame. The cross cannot and will not be denied. The invitation stands – the way of the cross leads home! Presented by the Sanctuary Choir, this will be a stirring evening that will leave you changed forever.
