Coming Up ... Passion Sunday 18th March

posted 12 Mar 2018, 02:27 by Dean Fostekew
This coming Sunday, is Lent V and Passion Sunday when our thoughts begin to move towards the contemplation of Jesus's passion and death on the Cross. On Sunday, we at the Good Shepherd, Murrayfield, will begin our service in the garden of the church by singing some of the Psalms of Ascent (Ps120-134). These are the same psalms that Jesus would have used as he approached Jerusalem. As we sing these psalms our thoughts are led to Jesus's entry into Jerusalem 2000 years ago and the subsequent events that followed. Passion Sunday is a good preparation for Holy Week which begins on Palm Sunday (24th).
Try reading some of the Psalms that Jesus sung all those years ago. What do their words say to you, today?
