Good Friday Noon Service

Good Friday Service
Friday, April 07, 2023
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
The Rev. Gloria Winston, Executive Director, Wesley Campus Ministry, North Carolina Central University (NCCU)

On Good Friday, we focus on the Passion of Christ as we remember that God's love will not allow the evil that we do to one another and our world to go unaddressed. We mark the agony of sin and the evil accumulated through the many ages of the world, all taken on by Jesus for us and for our salvation. Yet the Good Friday liturgy is not oriented around sin, evil, shame, or misery, but around the grateful hope of the redeemed.

Our Guest Preacher at the noon service is the Rev. Gloria Winston. She is the director of the Office of Spiritual Development and Dialogue and executive director of the NCCU Wesley Foundation/Campus Ministry at North Carolina Central University in Durham, North Carolina.

A licensed provisional elder in the United Methodist Church, Rev. Winston received an M.Div. from Duke Divinity School and is currently pursuing a doctor of ministry in transformative leadership with a concentration in interfaith dialogue and peace building at Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School.

Before that, Rev. Winston was a police detective and crime scene investigator in Arlington, Virginia, and a special agent with the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
