Baptisms this morning, which always means a lively room.

I had another go at 'Join all the glorious names'. It went a lot better this morning. Then a good run focussing on salvation from 'Jesus, friend of sinners' to 'I cling to the cross', all in Bb.

Mark spoke on Jesus priesthood, so 'Before the throne' was a perfect place to pick up the theme. We used the original version of 'Nothing but the blood' as a meditation, then 'Jesus is King' to draw the threads together. It's the first time I've led with 'Nothing but the blood' or 'Jesus is King', they were new to Kings, and given those circumstances they went very well.

I'm beginning to think about how to lead with both richer biblical/theological content AND with greater openness to the Spirit and to spiritual gifts. I don't think the two should cancel one another out. It may not have been noticable to anyone else in the congregation but I felt like I took a step in that direction this morning.
