So, why doesn’t the Church of Christ typically celebrate Good Friday? Perhaps “observe” would be the better word choice, but the question still remains basically the same. Why doesn’t the Church of Christ typically observe Good Friday? I could make a few educated guesses myself, but I don’t really know the truth behind the matter. Interestingly, I don’t recall anyone ever explaining the meaning of Good Friday to me. I figured it out for myself at some point in time but shouldn’t I have learned about it as a child, shouldn’t’ it have been spoken about from the pulpit, shouldn’t there have been some sort of church service that day? I don’t know. It seems odd that we talk about Jesus’ death all the time in our communion devotionals, and our sermons, and then turn our backs on a day set aside to specifically draw our attention to it. Maybe we, as a church, wish to draw more attention to the event that occurred on the third day following his death but it just seems odd that we would ignore the day that made that resurrection possible, the day he died.
