The Moderator has sent a letter to all congregations about Holy Week and Easter.
He writes: “While probably unable to meet together in church our devotional patterns can certainly continue and to that end I am going to offer a series of daily reflections running from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday. These will be available through the Church of Scotland social media channels and will be released each morning at 8am. They will also be available to download and place on your own digital platforms. Further, text versions will be available for local printing if desired and non-digital folk will be able to access them via phone: 0333 340 9200. Each episode will include readings, prayers, reflections and music; with ministers, deacons, elders and others from across the Church taking part. My hope is that these daily reflections will remind us of our essential unity and that we belong to a body of believers that stretches beyond our parish boundaries. As we continue through Lent, may you have a growing sense of the nearness of the Lord and know that with Him, we’ll find ourselves soon enough at Calvary and in turn at the empty tomb.”
