Palm Sunday sermon - Christians urged to draw on faith to "overcome fear"

The Moderator of the General Assembly said he prays that people will "find hope" as they prepare to mark Holy Week.

Rt Rev Colin Sinclair said he was not in favour of suggestions that the celebration should be cancelled in wake of the Covid-19 crisis.

Holy Week
The King has come The King we need He weeps for us He makes peace with us He holds nothing back from us

In a sermon to mark Palm Sunday, he said: "It is this story that shapes our story - events which add colour and significance to how we live.

"In this drama we see the best and the worst, we find hope in our despair, faith to overcome fear and love that knows no limits."
