One person who has prayed faithfully over the years and who longed to see revival was John Turnbull. Very sadly John went to be with the Lord on Monday. He was fit and healthy on Sunday and had climbed a Munro very recently. It has been a huge shock for Moira, the family and everyone who knew and loved John. Due to COVID restrictions only very few people can attend the funeral service and so it will be family only.This will be held in Liberton Kirk in Edinburgh where John’s parents are buried on Thursday 3rd September at noon. The service will be live streamed on zoom. The link is https://us02web.zoom.us/j/85785990285 .
Alternatively you can listen in to the funeral by phoning 0131 460 1196 When asked for meeting ID enter 857 8599 0285 # on your phone keyboard and when asked for a participant ID just enter #Biggar Church also plan to have a different type of zoom memorial on Saturday 12th September at 7pm. This will be an opportunity to join together in prayer, to hear the eulogy again and to listen to each other’s stories of John. Please pass this information to anyone who knew him. If you would like to contribute a short memory or story it would be helpful if you could let me know in advance so we can plan the time. The ‘chat’ on the zoom will also be open and people can write comments or memories there too. The link for this zoom event is https://zoom.us/j/5574322333
Again, those who are not on the internet may like to go to someone’s house for this or listen in by phone. The phone number for this is also 0131 446 1196 and the required ID is 5574322333 # and again just # for participant ID.
