A good morning musically and in terms of congregational engagement, but awkward thematically.

We had two strange things going on during the meeting. The first was that Mark was preaching on the section about men and women's hairstyles in 1 Cor 11; the second - rather more seriously - was that right outside our venue firemen were searching the riverbanks for the student who disappeared on Tuesday night. A difficult combination to say the least.

I ran Dustin Kensrue's 'Rejoice' for the second time to kick us off. The choice may sound strange given the circumstances, but the song actually directly addresses difficult times. People have really taken to this song. I highly recommend it!

There really aren't any songs about how Christians should wear their hair, so I went for a response oriented around worshipping with our whole lives and the freedom we have in Christ. I wasn't totally convinced that it had worked, but several people said that they had found the response helpful.

The preaching in this 1 Corinthians series has been outstanding, but it has often been really hard work leading a relevant sung response. Perhaps we just don't have enough songs about the practicalities of Christian life.
