Outro: Last Words

On this past Sunday evening I  led a worship service at one of my chapels, based around the Last Words of Jesus. It used modern, secular music to help the congregation to reflect on the words of scripture that recount the seven last phrases of Jesus Christ upon the cross. The Order of Service was as follows:
