Another prerecorded full band set. This is beginning to feel more normal than I expected it could.

I find the biggest challenge for prerecording is getting myself into the mind of leading the congregation at the beginning of the set. That happens automatically when we're gathered but it feels very artificial at first in our makeshift studio. Thankfully, once I've adjusted, I get into a good flow of leading song to song.

We're encouraging people to still meet at 10.30am on Sundays to participate in the comments threads of the YouTube premiere or the Facebook Watch Party, so I'm deliberately using phrases like "this morning" and inviting people to add comments. The worship sets are specific to an occasion rather than generic.

I reference 1 Peter 2:5 at the beginning of the service this morning. We are "like living stones, being built into a spiritual house". I've been pondering what makes a church a church quite a bit during the lockdown. It's not the physical 'house' that we usually meet in. (Dunelm House in our case!) We become conscious of the house as we join together before God in worship, offering unified "spiritual sacrifices through Jesus Christ". In some ways, that unseen reality seems more tangible while the physical sign is temporarily missing.

We are currently experiencing in relation to our own congregations what we always experience in relation to the Church universal. The eventual united gathering is implied and anticipated in the limited expression that our current circumstances allow.
