Sunday Setlist 12/28/08

This post is a part of Sunday Setlists. Go and check out what other churches are doing!

Finally, I get to post a set-list. Due to our Snowpocalypse here in Portland, we canceled church the last two Sundays. We had a Christmas Eve service, and this last Sunday I co-lead lead worship with my friend Travis at the church plant’s sending church, for all three services.

This is my first time trying to use an itunes link.

1. Go Tell It On the Mountain – E We did this with a bounce/hip-hop feel.

2. Holy is The Lord (Tomlin) – E I led this with the pretty standard arrangement.

3. More than Enough (Gary Oliver) – Bb minor Link: Gary Oliver - More Than Enough - More Than Enough We totally killed the four part harmonies on this one.

4. Rescue (Anderson) – D I led out on the verses and Travis took over for the chorus.

5. How Great is Our God (Tomlin, etc) – A We did this in the standard arrangement. The piano player, who I just met Sunday, led out the second verse. She sounded fantastic!

6. Cannons (Wickham) – D – Played this one a lot more rocked out than on either recorded version I’ve heard. Also, this is the perfect key for me to sing in on this one. Right in my “money” range.

In case you were wondering why the heck I haven’t updated this blog in about two weeks – the reasons are two-fold:

1. Church has been canceled due to inclement weather the last two Sundays. I’m not sure if I remember how to play music anymore.
2. I’ve been homebound due to the Portland Snowpocalypse (great name, whoever thought that up). Over a foot in our backyard as of this morning. It seems that when I have nothing to do, I do nothing productive. I can barely lift myself off the couch to make a decent meal.

Bryce and I did make it out of the house yesterday – first to check out the neighborhood and watch kids (and adults) sledding at the park. Most everyone was using garbage can lids and boxes. It was quite hilarious. Last night we walked up to Tom’s Pizza, which was closed. The only place open was a second-rate dive bar, but let me tell you, we were desperate.

While we were searching Lombard for anything open, we witnessed a car slide into a two foot pile of snow on the side of the street. The unchained, 80’s sedan was immediately stuck. A police car drove by and stopped to offer assistance. Unfortunately the cop asked the driver for license and insurance, but the driver had neither. Oops. The car got towed.

We’re stuck at home again, neither Bryce or I have a job to go to today. Plans include Videorama, Fred Meyers, and I’m about to make some serious breakfast sandwiches. And more coffee.

Here are some pictures from yesterday. It snowed 3″ last night, and still, it’s snowing more.

Margot hates it.

10 Positive Things

So, I admit it, I have an issue with negativity. And with all this terrible economic news all over the place I tend to get into a funk- snipping at Bryce, general gloom and doom thoughts, etc.

So, today, I am compiling a list of 10 things I really love:

1. Making music with people.
2. Sleeping in on a Saturday.
3. Playing with my dog at the dog park.
4. Hanging out in my freshly cleaned house.
5. Saturday morning breakfasts with Bryce
6. My friends, old and new.
7. Watching Blazer games and Red Sox games with other crazy fans.
8. Cooking something incredible, and then eating it.
9. Reading a really good book.
10. Karaoke!
