In this opening month of a new year, we continue to explore some of the foundational elements of the Christian life. Following themes of ‘Holy God, Holy People’ and ‘Jesus Christ, yesterday today and forever’, we turn our attention to ‘the Bible’. How do we read the holy scriptures, and why? What are the broad contours of the history they share? What is the overarching message of the witness of the Bible?
Martin Luther’s quote that ‘the Bible is the cradle in which Christ is laid’ provides a wonderful framework for this morning’s exploration and celebration.
Scripture readings from both Old and New Testaments, and hymns that range from something contemporary by Amy Grant to something classic from the Scottish Psalter of 1650 (which is certainly appropriate the Sunday before Robbie Burns Day!)
We invite you to join us in prayer and praise by live-stream at https://youtu.be/Vbq3hR3-3Bk . 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
And something new this morning … Right after the service, at 11:45 a.m., you are invited to join in a time of fellowship, thanks to Zoom. Andrew will be available to receive any questions or comments about the service, but we will also be able to move into small groups to get caught up.
