Please join me for Compline. Traditionally a short service of prayer and contemplation at the end of the day it has added significance in Holy week as we also contemplate the crucifixion and resurrection to come.
On Monday Tuesday and Wednesday it will be at 7.00 pm on zoom, the Zoom link and service sheet are below.
For the Bible reading I am using Psalm 130 which follows a formula of lament, confession of sin, waiting for the Lord, and confidence in redemption and all in 8 short verses.
It is penitential, starting at the lowest depths of despair and progressing steadily upwards until, at the end, there is a sense of encouragement and complete trust in God. Often called a “song of ascents”, because the verses climb from the abyss of depression to the high ground of hope.
To help us think about it in different ways I will use three different versions over the three nights. The King James version, the NIV, considered the best dynamic literal translation and The Message, the most well known modern paraphrase.
I look forward to seeing.
May God be with you this Easter
