  • [E] Yesterday, today and forever - Vicky Beeching
  • [E] Bless the Lord, O my soul - Matt Redman, Jonas Myrin
  • [E] Who is there like you? - Paul Oakley
  • [D] In the silence of beginning - Chris Juby
  • [Bb] Thank you for the blood - Matt Redman
  • [Gm] There's a pageant of triumph in glory - David Fellingham
  • [Bb] All to us - Chris Tomlin, Matt Maher, Matt Redman, Jesse Reeves

Considering how difficult it is to find contemporary songs to mark most specific occasions, there's quite an abundance for the first meeting of a new year.

The last verse of 'Crown him' is "...the Lord of years", and 'Yesterday, today and forever' starts "Everlasting God / The years go by but you're unchanging." 'Bless the Lord' has the sense of time passing too.

Our sermon series this term is on key Old Testament passages that anticipate Jesus. My hymn 'In the silence of beginning' - which pictures Christ all through salvation history - is going to be a useful hook. It really went well this morning!

We looked at Genesis 3, where Eve's seed will crush the serpent's head, so we celebrated Christ's victory in the second block. It was lively despite our somewhat reduced band.

I started the morning feeling a little distant. If nothing else, I'd woken up my own soul by the end of the meeting.
