Event description
The Holy Week is organized by the English Presbytery. The theme is the "The Cross" from Psalm 22-23.

About this event

31 March, Wednesday Night - Psalm 22:1-21

THE CROSS OF SUFFERING & SCORN

Holy Week, or Passion Week, reminds Christians particularly of the passion i.e. suffering of Jesus the Christ that culminated in his death by crucifixion on (what we now call) Good Friday. Whilst hanging on the Cross, Jesus is recorded as crying out in anguish “My God, why have you forsaken me?” This “cry of dereliction” echoes the cry in Psalm 22:1. Since Jesus on the Cross identified with the sufferer in Psalm 22, it may be instructive for us to meditate on the experience of suffering & scorn described in verses 1-21 of the psalm.

1 April, Thursday Night - Psalm 22:22-31

THE CROSS OF PAIN & PRAISE

But Jesus on the Cross also cries out "Father, into Your hands I commit my spirit." And the final third of Psalm 22 also portrays a strong tone of Praise in the midst of the Pain.

2 April, Friday Morning - Psalm 23:1-6

THE CROSS OF FEAR & FAITH

Psalm 23 describes Faith in God as a good Shepherd "even when I walk through the darkest valleys", and on the Cross we see Jesus, who is elsewhere described as a good shepherd himself, confronting the Fear of this darkest valley.
