KIRKIN’ O’ THE TARTANS HISTORY

 

The ceremony of Kirkin’ o’ the Tartans is American in origin, though based on Scottish history and legend. After Bonnie Prince Charlie’s Scottish forces were defeated by the English in 1746, Scotland again came under British rule. An Act was passed that forbade carrying arms and the wearing of kilts or tartans which represented Scottish heritage. This Act prompted the Scots to carry secretly a piece of their tartan as they went to the Kirk (church). The minister then slipped a blessing (a Kirkin’) into the service for the tartans. The prohibition against tartans lasted for nearly 50 years. When at last repealed, the Church of Scotland celebrated with a Service of Family Covenant, at which time the tartan of each family was offered as a covenant expression for the Lord’s blessing. The Kirkin’ is intended to encourage participants to reflect with thanksgiving on their own family and ethnic heritage, and to celebrate God’s grace poured out for all generations.

KIRKIN’ ‘O’ THE TARTANS

 

Sunday, February 11th will be Kirkin’ ‘O’ The Tartans. You may participate by wearing your plaid or a piece of your tartan to church. Come and enjoy this different Presbyterian service. Join us for fellowship after the service with a few samples of traditional Scottish fare.

Adult Sunday School class has started back up. We meet from 9:00 to 9:45 Sunday morning. This year will be very exciting as well as informative as Bill Reeve, whom is heading up the class, has purchased a special book on the various Christian religions. There are many things that we  often wondered about as far as all the various Christian denominations and what they stand for. Come and join us. Not only do we learn a lot from this class, but we have a good time while learning.

Dairy Queen on Palm Beach

The second Sunday of every month, you eat lunch and the church receives money! That’s right, the second Sunday of every month Dairy Queen on Palm Beach will donate 10% of all their monies collected between 11:30 and 2:30 to Buckingham Presbyterian Church. You may eat in or go through their drive up window. All proceeds taken during that timeframe BPC will receive 10%.

 

Their $5.00 meal is hard to beat. You get a deluxe hamburger or chicken fingers, French fries, a drink and a Sundae for $5.00. Or what about their Peanut Buster Parfait or their Heath Bar Blizzard? Ice cream cakes are good also.

 

They have also given us coupons for even more discounts. You may find these coupons on the table in the narthex. The coupons have an expiration of 5/31/17, pay no attention to that, DQ will honor them.

 

Support a local business and they

in turn will help support our church!

 

 

    PLEASE take a moment and visit the Memorial Garden. A team of people have worked hard to make it more accessible. Even for the ones with mobility issues.
