I was joined tonight by Tim Lee from St. Giles’ church Mountnessing. Today had been a busy day for Tim. In the morning he joined 400+ others for the Walk of Witness for Good Friday in Brentwood High Street, followed by a service at the chapel ruins. At 2 p.m. he was at St. Giles’ for a service for Good Friday, giving time and space to think about all that happened on the first Good Friday. Later in the afternoon he went to Buttsbury church, on the road between Ingatestone and Stock, where he chatted with people who were just out walking and visiting the church, which is open every day. And tonight he came to the show! We chatted about the power of this day for those with faith. We also talked about how the first Easter Sunday would have had such an impact on those who were witnesses.
We had both seen Jesus Christ Superstar performed live in the West End. I had also seen it last year at the Brentwood theatre. We featured tonight a number of tracks from various performances.
All of the music tonight was from Christian artists. A number of listeners commented that it was an interesting selection.
