Friday 24th September Set List

Hi folks

We don’t use this often because the yoof of today seem to prefer micro blogging – hence the use of the Facebook and Twitter sites more often. I think it’s to do with having short attention sp….

Anyways, where was I…

We have had a couple of requests to share the setlists from Friday night, os here they are in all their glory (based on memory).

Jesus Saves (Tim Hughes, Nick Herbert)
Happy Day (Tim Hughes, Ben Cantelon)
Dancing Generation (Matt Redman)
Our God Saves (Paul Baloche)
Remain (Ben Cantelon)
Refain from Beautiful One

Living For Your Glory (Tim & Rachel Hughes)
God of Justice (Tim Hughes)

You Never Let Go (Matt Redman)
You Alone Can Rescue (Matt Reman)
How Great Thou Art (Stuart K. Hine)

Where would we be without Messrs Hughes and Redman?

We also cut a few which we considered doing and I think did one or two which we hadn’t planned…

Songs we recommend would be:

Saviour of the World (Ben Cantelon)
Awakening (Chris Tomlin)
Beautiful Exchance (Hillsong)

*SEE YOU ALL ON 12TH NOVEMBER AT DESTINY CHURCH, EDINBURGH* – We are delighted to have Ian Henderson from the Message Trust in Manchester speaking on the topic “relevant”. We’re also really excited to have Thomas Dean, Worship Pastor at Morningside Baptist Church leading us in worship.

    It’s good, but Dancing Generation has never been my cup of tea; I’ve always felt it makes me concentrate more on dancing and shouting than worshiping, and people may get confused between the adreniline of dancing and the holy spirit. Ofcourse, it could be just me, I dunno

    I see your point Joe, and I know people personally who have had to overcome a similar issue. I think it’s important to bear in mind the context of the whole song, rather than just the perceived “euphoric” bits.

    The purpose of the song – I belive – is to celebrate through an outward expression (like singing) what the Lord has done for us. God’s mercy should make us want to dance and his glory should make us want to shout.

    Psalm 30: 11 says: “You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy”… God’s mercy brings us joy, instead of sorrow, we dance which is a joyful expression of the inner soul.

    Psalm 98: 4 instructs us to “Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth, burst into jubilant song with music”…

    There is a really important section in that song which explains why dancing and shouting are appropriate: “It’s the overflow of the forgiven soul// And now we see you God// Our hearts cannot stay silent”.

    So I don’t think the song is there simply to make people move, but rather to show our Lord we’re not ashamed, to outwardly express the joy that can only be found in Jesus. Perhaps rather than worrying how other people are feeling or being confused, perhaps I could encourage you to consider what the Lord might say to you through that song.

    You say it makes you think about dancing and shouting more than worshipping… but what is worship? Romans 12:1 calls us to offer our bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God and this can mean many things, but I believe that the actions and expressions of our bodies reflect what’s going on inside. Indeed, you are right that we shouldn’t focus on an outward expression simply because anyone else is or because a song tells us to; worship is really about the heart of WHY we do something above and beyond WHAT we do – you like me, may be more of a “dancer on the inside”! Next time you’re somewhere that song is being done… why not see how you can engage in a new way… you never know, you might enjoy it.

    Bless you bro.

    Thanks for that, I’ve never really thought of it like that. I probably will never be able to concentrate entirely on worship because I’m not a dancing sort of guy, but thanks anyway
