The Great Supper (Luke 14) was the theme of the sermon preached by the Rev Kenneth Stewart of Glagow RP Church at the start of the Evangelistic Services held by the Stornoway congregation on January 19. The Coulegrein Mission House was packed to capacity by people from several denominations and from all over the island. They were fed not by crumbs from the Master’s table but by the ‘fat of the land.’ It was an Emmaus journey over three days as Mr Stewart brought to them things old and new.
There were good attendances at the remaining services. Saturday’s text was from Isaiah 1: 18 ‘Though your sins be like scarlet yet they shall be white as snow. On Sunday morning he turned his attention to Luke 17 — the days of Noah and Lot — and in the evening sermon be brought before them Nicodemus and the need to be born again (John 3:3).
