Lots of singing today!

During the Jeremiah series I'm deliberately leading songs that focus on Christ in the opening block of worship. It's not always straightforward to bring the response back to Jesus off the back of Jeremiah, so it's essential to sing the gospel together earlier in the meeting.

It's so powerful to sing specifically about Christ, rather than more general attributes of God. 'This is amazing grace' absolutely took off this morning. 'All my days' continued the theme perfectly, and after lots of incredibly rich contributions from the congregation, 'On Christ the solid rock' left us in no doubt as to the centre of our hope.

I managed to pull my guitar lead out of the DI box during 'On Christ the solid rock'. I've never done that before!

Richard preached for the last time this morning. He was fairly brief, so we had lots of time for response.

The sermon was at least in part about right worship. I led 'When the music fades' to open response with just voices and acoustic guitar. That's actually the first time I've led that song at Kings. I tend to reckon that it's odd to put lines like "I'm sorry Lord for the thing I've made it" on the lips of the congregation, but it was a very appropriate theme today.

If you don't already use 'This is amazing grace', it's well worth picking up. Video here.
