Sunday Setlist - 19th May 2013



So today is Pentecost - The Sunday when many churches remember and celebrate the gift of the Holy Spirit when it was given to Jesus' disciples. We can read about it in the first couple of chapters in the book of Acts.

Although the focus of today's message was not specifically on the giving of the Holy Spirit to the church, we focused in on one of the gifts of the Holy Spirit - prophecy. Begining our new sermon series entitled 'Jesus is the best . . .' today we looked at 'Jesus is the best prophet'. The teaching is centred around Hebrews.

So my song choice tried to centre around the idea of prophecy. Some songs like 'Days of Elijah' mention prophets and prophecy, others contain a prophetic edge to them and give space for spontaneous worship where you can sit back and give space for the Holy Spirit to show up and do His stuff. 'Build Your Kingdom Here' was selected because this has become quite a timely prophetic declaration for our church into our current situation and circumstances at the moment. So the setlist explored a variety of aspects cantred around the prophetic.

It seemed to work well. The Holy Spirit certainly showed up! A few prophecies were given during the service. People engaged in the more spontaneous times of sung worship and the final song (Build Your Kingdom Here) encapsulated and summarised the sermon and the entire service very well.
