David the King: Fresco by Tarquinio Ligustri (1603)

This fresco in the Basilica san Vitale of Rome makes me think … David holds a harp and I remember that it is from the witness of David that we receive the psalms, words we continue to use in our relationship with the Holy One when our own words fail us … David wears a crown and I remember how God used him to bring together God’s people, an embrace and rule that was completed we believe in Jesus the Christ … David looks reflective and pensive and I think upon how close is his life to ours – his passions and his failures, his self-centredness and his faithfulness – and through it all God working God’s good purposes. I invite you to join me for a series of sermons that will focus upon ‘David and Us’.

This is the Sunday before Canada Day, and we will lift up special prayers for our nation, or more accurately for the peoples of our nation. Have a look at the Order of Service below, and join us either in the sanctuary or by live-stream with a link to be available here Sunday morning. Organ preludes will begin around 10:20 a.m. and the service will commence at 10:30 a.m. Other services can be found on the St. Andrew’s Youtube channel at https://www.youtube.com/c/StAndrewsPresbyterianChurchKingston
