This morning’s service at Dores Beach

This morning, a good number of us met on the beach at Dores to celebrate Easter and the resurrection of Jesus Christ.  It was bitterly cold, and smirring with rain at times, but we gathered round the fire and led by Jonathan on guitar, sang some well-known songs. ‘He is Lord, he is risen from the dead and he is Lord’; ‘Because he lives, I can face tomorrow.’ ‘Amazing grace.’  Some of the young people contributed readings, and the Adam

Oh to see the dawn of the darkest day Jesus Christ is risen today See what a morning, gloriously bright I cast my mind to Calvary where Jesus bled and died for me This life I live is not my own for my Redeemer paid the price The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases Thine be the glory

Luke 24:1-12 Jesus has risen 24 On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb. 2 They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, 3 but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. 4 While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightning stood beside them. 5 In their fright the women bowed down with their faces

A shortage of disciples……

John's Christian Viewpoint piece from last week's Highland News: There was a shortage of disciples, so I volunteered.

Reflection from John on this morning’s service

When we watched the clip from the Miracle Maker, what struck me was the contrast between the colourful and jolly bunch of folk around the man on the donkey and the grey walls of Jerusalem, with armour-clad Roman soldiers glowering down. A bunch of nobodies and a guy on a donkey, of all things, contrasted with the best military defences of the time, and soldiers from a world-dominating army. And yet who was strongest? It reminded me of the upside-down

Palm Sunday Service

Today is Palm Sunday, when we remember Jesus’ journey into Jerusalem, riding on a donkey – and we had a donkey present, by courtesy of Smithton Culloden church!   John read the story (Luke 19:28-44), we watched a brief clip from an animated video called The Miracle Maker, showing the group of jolly, excited figures surrounding the figure on the donkey as he approached the city walls of Jerusalem, and then Duncan gave us a brief talk.

Palm Sunday

Luke 19:29-44 29 As he approached Bethphage and Bethany at the hill called the Mount of Olives, he sent two of his disciples, saying to them, 30 ‘Go to the village ahead of you, and as you enter it, you will find a colt tied there, which no one has ever ridden. Untie it and bring it here. 31 If anyone asks you, “Why are you untying it?” say, “The Lord needs it.”’ 32 Those who were sent ahead went and found it just as he had told them.
