The community is invited to a moving Tenebrae worship experience centered around the cantata “Tapestry of Darkness” by Ruth Elaine Schram. Westlake United Methodist Chancel Choir and guest chamber orchestra will perform this dramatic musical work. The cantata blends Scripture readings describing the last days of Jesus’ life with original songs that depict both the events and emotions of Holy Week. The lyrics recall the fading of the light of faith and the darkness that covered the Earth at Jesus’ death on the hill of Golgotha. As the shadows of night grow deeper, we hear again the shouts of the bloodthirsty crowd and the blows that pierced His hands and side. Only a slim ray of hope remains to pierce the shroud of darkness.
The event takes place at Westlake United Methodist Church, 27650 Center Ridge Road, Westlake, Ohio 44145
