Kirkin’ of the Tartans

[jwplayer config=”LuLu” mediaid=”1827″]
We celebrate this ancient ceremony becuase we identify with the Scottish Reformers. The Reformers were led by John Knox, who established the Presbyterian Church (Kirk) in Scotland under the principles of John Calvin: the sovereignty of God, the authority of Scripture, and the necessity of grace through faith in Christ. During special services people would enter into the service with banners of fine woven fabrics (tartans) representing individual families (clans) to receive the blessing of the Lord.
