Good Friday 2011 Sermons

Nine mini sermons by the Rector interspersed with Hymns on the meaning to us of Jesus' last hours.  A devotion in meditation, hymns and prayer covering those last three hours of our Saviour's life as He hung on the Cross. 
The Meditations are based on a series of cross roads we encounter in our lives and illustrated by examples from the Bible.
