Local Christians take time to commemorate Good Friday

QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) - On Friday, Christians gathered at Luther Memorial Church in Quincy to reflect on the meaning of Good Friday.

Five people told about the Passion of Christ by portraying apostles like Peter or even Mary, the mother of Jesus.

"And all of them are going to be speaking as if they were there," Tony Metz, the pastor of Luther Memorial Church said. "And they're giving their account, sort of from the foot of the cross. So it's imaginative in that sense. But really feel like God is going to speak through it."

The annual service was open to the community, because organizers say the death of Christ is where members of all Christian faiths share the same beliefs.

"It's at the cross where the denominational lines and the doctrinal differences really fade away," Metz said. "This is the one story that makes us all one family and one body. So it's a good day for a service like this."

The service was sponsored by the Quincy Area Ministerial Association.
