Here’s the set list from this weekend:
All Because Of Jesus – A (we don’t do the ending like Fee because it seemed like the congregation couldn’t follow it…and I still have mixed feelings about the way this song sounds in a lower key)
Savior – A
You Are Good – A
Once Again – G
Wonderful Maker – Ab
At the end of the Sunday services, Pastor Mark gave people the opportunity to write down some things in their life that they needed to get rid of. It was a great tie-in to illustrate the message. As people left, they could throw the papers into wast-baskets by the exit doors, or into a fire pit in the courtyard. I love the powerful image of getting rid of junk in our lives.
Saturday night, after service, we had a worship night in The Basement. Luis Acosta led, and along with a drummer and singer, I played in the band to back him. There were about 30 people who came down from 8-10 pm as we spent a really cool time in worship. I am excited to see more and more opportunities for us to use The Basement as a venue for people to connect and spend time with God.
This week I will be in Dallas, TX at a worship conference with a few people from our ministry here at Living Streams. The conference is at Gateway Church, a church with an incredible worship ministry, and a church that does things with excellence as well.
