19/06/2022 Morning worship (Father’s Day)

The call to worship was provided by the band this morning as we played the last section of Ray Steadman-Allen’s ‘Jesus Folk’. This section features two songs, ‘There’s No Other Name’ and the theme song, ‘Jesus Folk’.

On this Father’s Day, the band reminded during worship that ‘Love Changes Everything’.

Love, love changes everything
Hands and faces, earth and sky
Love, love changes everything
How you live and how you die

Love can make the summer fly
Or a night seem like a lifetime
Yes love, love changes everything
Now I tremble at your name
Nothing in the world will ever be the same

Love, love changes everything
Days are longer, words mean more
Love, love changes everything
Pain is deeper than before

Love will turn your world around
And that world will last for ever
Yes love, love changes everything
Brings you glory, brings you shame
Nothing in the world will ever be the same

Off into the world we go
Planning futures, shaping years
Love bursts in and suddenly
All our wisdom disappears

Love makes fools of everyone
All the rules we make are broken
Yes love, love changes everyone
Live or perish in its flame
Love will never, never let you be the same

Love will never, never let you be the same!

Major David asked us what we do when persecution comes our way, what do we do? Do we find ourselves compromising with the world to avoid criticism, or leave us without any fight left in us, or do we thank God for His presence while asking Him to make us stronger and more courageous because we want to please Him, rather than those around us.

At the conclusion of worship the band played the quick march, ‘Triumphant Prospect’ by Olaf Ritman, that includes the chorus, ‘The Day of Victory’s Coming’.

The day of victory’s coming, ‘tis coming by and by,
When to the cross of Calvary all nations they will fly;
We’re soldiers in the Army, we’ll fight until we die,
For the day of victory’s coming by and by.
