We interrupt the normal madness for the following advert from Exeter Diocese:
THOUSANDS of people are expected to line Exeter’s street for a dramatised account of the death of Jesus this Good Friday.
Last year over 1,200 people attended a short service in Exeter Cathedral and several thousand watched the drama unfold on the streets.
Organised by Christians Together across Exeter (CTaX), the play, which ends in a silent walk behind the cross through the city centre, have become a highlight of the Easter weekend…
The key points of the morning will be:
• 10am – worship in the Cathedral before the walk. The service will be led by Revd Simon Taylor of South Street Baptist Church and the speaker will be Revd Canon Anna Norman-Walker
• 10.30am – the play starts with the first scene on Cathedral Green, progressing to further scenes in Princesshay Square and Bedford Square
• From Bedford Square the walk will continue in silence as Jesus carries the cross down the high street, ending back on Cathedral Green with the crucifixion scene
• After the final scene, the Right Reverend Jonathan Draper, the Dean of Exeter Cathedral, will reflect on Good Friday and Jesus’ resurrection which is celebrated on Easter Day, and give a blessing on the Cathedral Green.
• After that, hot cross buns will be distributed and the Cathedral doors opened for all who wish to come in for prayer and reflection.

While Team Sofa still doesn’t think that “The Walk of Witness” is the most catchy name ever, its always been worth going along to, and taking part in.
