It's the blood

Our Good Friday service at Westchester Chapel was very powerful. A number of us read the scriptures of the Lord's Passion, but we started with Genesis: God covered the first man and the first woman with animal skins. Pastor Jim told how blood was also used to cover the doorposts of the homes of the Israelites so their firstborn would not be killed while the firstborn of Egypt were killed as the final plague. Someone pointed out to me years ago how the blood on the doorframes was placed in such a way to form a cross (a form of execution which wouldn't be invented for quite some time). Tonight we stepped forward and put blood red paint on the door we'd created. It was a very powerful evening.

Sandy Rodriguez is pictured here applying the blood.
