Worship on Christ the King Sunday

 

On the Sunday which celebrates Christ the King, the service was led by our ‘Aussie’ local preacher, Ros Marshall. Praise was led by our talented organist Dr Albert Bil.

Today’s message, that because of the self- sacrifice of his only son, we are all one with God, was depicted in a variety of forms through music, drama, action and word.

Now that the town Remembrance service alternates between the South church and St James’, this morning, we celebrated peace while acknowledging the sacrifice of those members of the parish at the World War 1 memorial within Dunnottar church. Donald MacRae observed this by laying a wreath. This tribute was followed by prayer and a silence. The young people of the congregation were ‘kept in the loop’ when Ros directed the attention of the young people to 5 special stained glass windows; 4 of which hold the names of those lost in World War Two and the fifth holds the biblical reference to the bodyguards who risked their lives for their King - David.

Ros’s message was further emphasised by a brief drama entitled ‘The King and I’ which was set in a theatre ticket office and performed by two members of the worship group. The central theme ensured the congregation ‘got the message’ that we will attain paradise with God by His personal invitation. We simply need to ask. The ticket is there waiting for us and our name is on it.
