Holy Week, vii ~ Holy Saturday
Jesus in Sheol
This day is one of lamentation and wondering. No festal activity, but lots of prayerful song mingled with art both visual & verbal, with a constant background of musical lamentation. Nothing like my two favorite requiems for this Holy Saturday.
1 Peter 4:1-8
