Good Friday

I know that I haven't been too active lately with my posts but I thought I'd share some photos that I took in 2008 when I spent Holy Week and Easter in Jerusalem.  
Crosses waiting for pilgrims to carry along the Via Dolorosa
Mosaic inside of the Church of the Holy Sepulchure, taken before Good Friday.  Jesus being carried to the tomb.  The rest are pilgrims waiting to walk and then arrival at the Church.  The church was not open to the public until much later in the day on Good Friday.  Those who wanted to pray did so in the courtyard outside.  I sat for a very long time and meditated after walking the Via Dolorosa with my friends from the Lutheran Church of the Redeemer.
