:: Call to worship/ Call on God’s name for help by reading: Matthew 11:28-30

:: Song of Praise: Psalm 5 (p5) (text here and tune here)

:: Corporate confession of Faith: Apostles’ Creed

I believe in God, the Father Almighty, the Creator of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord: Who was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He endured the sufferings of hell. The third day He arose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty, whence He shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy *catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.

*The word “catholic” refers not to the Roman Catholic Church, but to the universal church of the Lord Jesus Christ.

  1. Hi Simon
    Good to hear you again.

    May I make a comment and two suggestions?

    The comment is: beware of solecisms like “upon you and I” and “for you and I”

    The two suggestions are:
    1. It would, I think, be good if you could look at your script less and at any rate at the camera a bit more.
    2. There is a slight echo in what looks like is the scout hall, and your voice is slightly blunted by that. I would consult a sound expert, but perhaps it is necessary just to hang a curtain or even a blanket on the wall to solve the problem.

    God bless you in your witness.
