Summary of the Service for 31st August 2019 thanks to Robert Hendry
Rev Trevor Morrow was welcomed by Emily
Trevor Called the children up to the front of the church and showed them pictures of different hats and asked them “Who wears these?”
After showing them 5 different hats ( Chef / bakers hat, Stetson, Sports Cap, Crown (King or Queen) Top Hat as normally worn by a Leprechaun and finally a crown of thorns.)
He mentioned that Jesus wore a crown of thorns as a punishment and a mockery since it declared him to be the King of the Jews. Even the Jewish Sanhedrin refused to acknowledge Jesus as their “King”.
Pilate, the leader of the Roman Authority in Israel thought it appropriate for the situation. In David’s Psalm No 110, David acknowledged as the greatest King in the history of the Jews also acknowledged Jesus as greater that he is and sitting ät the right hand of God and having thye world as his foot stool”.
Trevor continued his sermon by showing through the scriptures how Jesus is acknowledged as not just a normal person but also as a rather extraordinary man who suffered and died for the sins of the world, and even acknowledged, by one of the thieves on the cross next to Jesus on Calvary when he asked Jesus “Remember me when you come into your Kingdom”
The sermon was then followed by Holy Communion
