I’ve had such a good day today!
I led worship this morning at the friendliest church I think I’ve ever been in. The people at Drumchapel United Reformed Church are great. They made Avril and I feel so welcome and they are so relaxed about worship that it really creates a warm and accepting atmosphere. I can’t wait to go back in June.
I preached about skipping from Palm Sunday when Jesus arrives in Jerusalem and the crowd welcome him to Easter Sunday when we greet the risen Lord. Missing out Holy Week seems to me to miss the whole point. The journey through darkness is the road to our salvation. We can only really begin to understand that if we travel the road to the cross and beyond.
This afternoon we visited my parents and then went to see a Prayer Walk their church have created around the 7 ‘I Am’ sayings of Jesus. It’s the first time they have tried anything like this and it’s great! Good to see some innovation coming from the congregation and good to see them being encouraged!
If you are near Dolphinton, just outside Biggar in South Lanarkshire, then pop in on Wednesday or Thursday to see for yourself.
