"Two Tenebrae Readings and Services" provides pastors and congregations with dramatic ways to remember the Passion of the Lord.
Tenebrae I - 9 reading parts
Tenebrae II - 12 reading parts
Parts are simple enough for young people and adults. They are creatively drawn from the Bible narratives and present realistic human responses from those who would be his disciples.
These resources require very little preparation. They were conducted in the author's congregation by calling the readers together an hour before the service.
