The Rock

Sermon text:  I Samuel 7:3-12  

When you approach the city of Stirling, in the center of Scotland, from almost any direction, one of the first things you see is the tall tower built on top of a cliff in honor of the Scottish hero William Wallace. It was built on top of the crag where allegedly Wallace and his men camped on the evening before the battle at Stirling Bridge. Mentioning Stirling Bridge may confuse you if you have watched the movie Braveheart, for the Battle of Stirling in the movie is fought on a field, but in reality, Wallace camped high up on the crag, where he saw the English army, which outnumbered his army quite considerably, descend from Stirling Castle to approach the battlefield...see full sermon here
