The room was set up in the round this morning, so we were leading worship from amongst the congregation rather than like a band and an audience.

I don't think I can overstate how much a prefer that arrangement. Not acoustically - it's more of a challenge to be honest - but very much symbolically. It expresses the reality that all believers are a united worshipping community and dissolves the cultural cues that the people on the stage are performers/entertainers.

I deliberately chose songs that affirmed our shared faith and emphasised that theme with my exhortations.

Tim preached a bold sermon on the awkward passages in Leviticus 11-15 and we celebrated our freedom in Christ to respond.
