This is definitely David. There is the harp of his psalms, there is the throne of his rule. But why is his head in his hands? How could one of such privilege look so miserable?
That is the prophet Nathan before David. Using a parable, Nathan has held up a mirror to David. And David has seen himself as God and others see him. David is brought to his senses, beginning with an experience of regret and confession. (2 Samuel 12:1-15). As with David, how often with us!
Have a look at the Order of Service below, and join us either in the sanctuary or by live-stream at https://youtu.be/IM8l5WsY0e0. We welcome Aurora Dokkens back to the organ bench this Sunday morning and Susanne Cliff-Jüngling as cantor. Organ preludes will begin around 10:25 a.m. and the service will commence at 10:30 a.m. Previous services can be found on the St. Andrew’s Youtube channel at https://www.youtube.com/c/StAndrewsPresbyterianChurchKingston
The Order of Service and announcements can be found below, with the hymns printed out further down the page. The lyrics to the hymns provide some wonderful mediative verse, from the Scottish Psalter of 1650 (O thou my soul, bless God the Lord) to the English poet George Herbert (King of glory, King of peace) to a contemporary Christian with a Canadian connection, Anna Briggs (We lay our broken world in sorrow at your feet).
