Easter 2008 Silent Witness


Act of Silent Witness on Good Friday, 21 March, 2008
from 11.00am - 12 noon

As a part of the Easter scene in Inverness it has become a custom for local Christian believers to stand around a large cross at the intersection of Inglis Street and the High Street for an hour on Good Friday from 11.00am until 12 noon.

This act of silent witness is a poignant reminder to passing shoppers of the price paid by Christ on Calvary and has traditionally been organised by the Salvation Army.
Major Paul Billard writes to invite any and every believer to come and stand for whatever period possible during the hour.

Additionally the Inverness Branch of the Scottish Bible Society is due to conduct an outreach in the Eastgate Centre and the streets leading towards the Silent Witness

Thanks Paul for making the arrangements. I for one am really hoping that a large crowd of us will be at the cross in the city centre this year. Most people are on holiday on Good Friday, so let's choose to encourage one another to be there.

The secular world may even be trying to take away our right to quietly stand before a large cross, because officialdom may consider it will offend others. But it seems to be the right kind of public witness where the world can be reminded of the great sacrifice Jesus made for mankind. Does His public act of great love toward us, not deserve our public, and loving, response? Please, let our witness be worthy of the Lion of Judah.
