I started the weekend out by singing at a funeral on Saturday morning (I sang Amazing Grace and I Can Only Imagine). Â A single dad who had attended Living Streams off and on for the past five years had an accidental drug overdose. Â It was a pretty tough funeral, even though I didn’t know him. Â Two of his three young children were there, and it was very difficult to watch them sitting with family in that front row, and not imagine my own kids. Â It’s interesting how these moments hit you, but it was pretty emotional just being around it. Â I’ll be praying for those kids as they grow up without their dad.
So, after a quick nap, it was on to rehearse and lead the Saturday night service. Â Being Valentines day, there weren’t quite as many people there, but it was still a good service. Â As I’ve been transitioning into this new position at the church, I’ve decided to pretty much do the same songs for our Saturday and Sunday services to build a sense of continuity and purpose to our Worship Arts program here. Â The Saturday night service is totally different than Sunday mornings, but it’s working to use the same songs, even if I mix up the order a bit.
Sunday services were really cool. Â There was just a sweet sense of God’s people worshipping, and it really felt like God was moving on many hearts. Â I introduced a new song (Savior) during the offering, and then brought it back at the close of service. Â Here is the song list from this weekend:
- Let It Rise – E…..(my variation on the Big Daddy Weave arrangement)
- Everlasting God – B
- Mighty To Save – G/A
- Revelation Song – D
- Savior Â – A…..(from New Life Worship: Counting On God)
If you were there….what thoughts did you have on the services?
