This is Holy Week, the week in which Christians around the world focus on the events leading up to Jesus’ death and resurrection. Each day this week, we’ll be posting short video reflections based around the themes of Jesus’ seven sayings, seven words, which he spoke as he was being crucified and which are recorded in the Gospels. These will help us explore different aspects of the significance of the Easter message. A new one will go live each day, and we’ll post links to them here, and on our Facebook page. We hope you find them helpful.
And here is our sixth video. Graeme Adams of New Beginnings Church in Moodiesburn shares some thoughts on Jesus’ cry “It is finished” – which is a shout of triumph.
Our fifth video, in which Rev. Mark Malcolm of Chryston Church of Scotland reflects on the theme of Distress, is now available to watch.
Our fourth reflection comes from the Rev. Dave Slater, of Gartcosh and Glenbloig Churches of Scotland. Dave is helping us think about perhaps the bleakest words in Scripture – “My God, why have You forsaken me?”
As Holy Week continues, here is the third in our series, from Rev. Steve Marr of Chryston United Free Church, exploring the theme of relationship.
