Special Service for Passion Sunday

This coming Sunday at 10am the Eucharistic service at the Church of the Good Shepherd will be based around the Psalms of Ascent (120-134). These Psalms were traditionally sung or chanted as pilgrims approached the city of Jerusalem and the Temple for the Feast of the Passover. They would have formed part of the acclamation of the crowds around Jesus as he entered Jerusalem on that first Palm Sunday. In Murrayfield we are using them to help us focus on Jesus' passion following his triumphal entry into the Holy City. The service on Sunday will begin at the garden gate and we will wend our way into and out of church as the service progresses. Come and join us.
