Good Friday Light-Burst

All was ready. It was about 6:50 on Good Friday evening. Musicians were warmed up. I just clipped on my wireless microphone and we were reviewing the lighting instructions for the service, dimming the lights in seven stages after each section of scripture was read, down to total darkness. Outside we were experiencing a brief but intense rain shower. When the shower abruptly ended, the brick patio, shiny with rainwater, acted as a mirror reflecting the sun horizontally into the sanctuary right on to the draped cross. What looks like a crown of thorns is the overhead chandeliers caught in the light.
It was a visual moment!
