Passion Sunday coming up

posted 8 Mar 2016, 06:10 by Dean Fostekew
This coming Sunday the 13th is what is called Passion Sunday when our thoughts and prayers in the church turn towards Christ's traumatic days before his death and passion on the Cross. At the Church of the Good Shepherd we will begin our service on Sunday by witnessing to the people of Murrayfield. We will do this by beginning our service  in the garden of our church and by using the Psalms of Ascent. Psalms 120-134 are the Psalms that pilgrims would have sung as they ascended to Jerusalem for Passover. Jesus would have used these Psalms as he journeyed for the last time to Jerusalem and as we use them we will remember his last journey and so join our prayers with his for the peace of Jerusalem and the Land of the Holy One.
