Sunday, 3rd March, 2019: 'Kirking' o' the Tartans'
Siesta Key Chapel, at 4615 Gleason Ave. recognizes its Scottish heritage with a special service known as a Kirkin’ o’ the Tartans
. With the help of Sarasota’s award winning Jacobite Pipe and Drum Band and some kiltie lassies to dance after worship, at the 8:45 and 11:00 worship services. Everyone is invited to wear their tartans and offer up family tartans, crests, and special symbols, such as bible’s, flags and family photos, for a blessing. The Rev. Dr. Cook’s sermon will be titled “Making Haggis
” is the Scottish term for church and the national Church of Scotland was, and is, the Presbyterian Church. Clans in Scotland provided a system of belonging or caring and protection. What is important to note is that the clans of Scotland were not exclusive groups, but rather inclusive. There is a strong emotional connection between families and their tartans. Even today the people of Scotland take pride in their clans. So on March 3rd, at both worship services, Siesta Key Chapel recognizes the importance of families taking care of families.
So don’t miss this great worship, which will be followed by a mission fair, and food with a Scottish flavor.
