A powerful session at Burn. Hannah and I leading together.

We've had quite a crazy week, without loads of time to prep, so we were very conscious of our weakness as we arrived. I had a moment where the absurdity of standing there with an acoustic guitar and thinking anything other than flimsy cover versions might occur was very palpable.

But as soon as the team began praying for us before we led, I was overwhelmed with a sense of how complete God's generosity is towards us, and how completely unnecessary any striving is on our part. We are dust, yet destined for glory. How can I not respond in worship and in calling others to worship?

My own weakness was overwhelmed with the fluency of the Spirit, and threads of truth and grace began unravelling with every verse we led. We sang spontaneous songs and ran to keep up. There was a tangible sense of encounter with God. So much more than flimsy cover versions.

Afterwards the team prayed for us again, and without knowing most of the circumstances, spoke words that penetrated right to the heart of our lives. The reality of touching something infinitely beyond ourselves was inescapable.

Probably the reason that these things sometimes seem absurd is because God is so absurdly generous.

Yes.

I dropped the tuning of my guitar a half step this evening so I could play G chord shapes but sing in F#. I quite liked it.
