Last Sunday is an object lesson on when the WL and the Preacher are out of sync. I took the usual, orthodox interpretation of the treasure in the field and the pearl parables. Unfortunatel,y the preacher did not :-)
All my songs (well,…"
"Aha! That joins a few dots up.
For songs, anything which refers to the King (and related themes - how about Majesty?) would be fair game; if you don't have a king, you don't have a kingdom. For thinking about the kingdom on earth you have…"
"Thanks for the suggestions, Folks. I'm going to be working on this today. It's nice to have somewhere to start. My mind was a complete blank! Some of those are familiar. Others I'll have to look up.
BTW, my name is Dorothy.…"
"Some possibles (I was going to mention Come set your rule by the Rend Collective Experiment as well)
All I have, All I am - Matt Osgood, on the Resound Worship site
Restore O Lord (old Graham Kendrick song)
Couple of home-grown possibles:
"Maybe you want songs about laying down our lives?
Draw me close to you
Jesus, be the centre
All I once held dear
My first love (as a reminder)
There's probably a bunch of stuff, but I don't have a song list handy to remind me."
"Thanks both. I'm finding the sermon theme (Jesus' teaching about the Kingdom of God, specifically the story of the pearl of great price) tricky regarding songs. Normally, the theme triggers lots of song ideas for me."
"TBH WTR has become very slow lately. I'll have a think, Dee, since nothing is coming to mind right now except a single line I can't connect with anything. Many songs refer to the KoG obliquely, rather than specifically: e.g. Let your glory…"

Hi Dee (I almost forgot and called you Dot!). Did you hear about the open worship time we had at St. Edburgs in Bicester last Sunday night? It wasn't enormously well advertised, but it was a good time, with various people bringing prophetic words etc. The band was Andy C, Gemma and Joachim from Highway, Rachel Bowen and Jamie Martin from Emmanuel and myself. We're hoping to do something like that again in September, and possibly once a quarter.
