The great and terrible Friday. The place where the great and terrible God of all creation judges. Where He loves. Where He mercies. Where He graces.
All will be judged. But through the one sent from the Father, we can escape judgement and receive love, mercy and grace.

Reworking of a Charles Wesley hymn of worship.
I sang this beautiful hymn yesterday at a large central London church with a few hundred confident, care free singers. It was a more modern version and arrangement than this one and I didn’t realise it was a very old hymn until I tried to track it down to share with you. A modern rendition does not seem to available so here is the oldie but goodie.
Contemplative, compassionate, compelling – Come thou.
Favourites at this point – O Sacred Head Now Wounded (meditate on that title for a week and get back to me – changed) and Roll Away the Stone.
I have really enjoyed my first listen through. Quite Christmassy at times. And why not?

This is the second release (
first release info here) that is focused on this most climactic time in the year for Christians – Easter.
And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith.
