So, I guess I totally forgot to post our Sunday Setlist last week! Oops. Well, here is how our Sunday went today:

I was terribly distracted this morning – When I went to leave my house this morning, I found that our car had been broken into. Ugh. Nothing important was taken but the thieves made a big mess of my car. I ended up being a little late. Our setup/run through seemed like a lot of work this week. We didn’t have a rehearsal so that didn’t help anything. In addition to that I was also busy setting up garageband to record the service. (Our first time using a computer record from the board) Despite the business/craziness of the morning the actual time of worship was good. Refreshing.

Here’s our set:

1. Holy is the Lord (Tomlin)
2. Cannons (Wickham)
3. All We Need (Hall)
4. Rescue (Anderson)
5. Psalm 46 (Mine)


So tell me, how did your Sunday go?

As always, a part of this.

Another hot and sweaty sunday for us. Despite it being quite warm, we had a great morning. I also got to debut a new song I had written. Here is a recording (not live) that I did really quickly with my iPhone. I was a bit hesitant to use it congregationally but the response from everyone was incredible and overwhelmingly positive.

Let me know what you think in the comments section, pretty please?

Lyrics:

Psalm 46

(Verse 1)
Mountains shake, the world breaks
Life falls down and so do I
Plans change, I make mistakes
No matter how much I’ve tried

(Pre-chorus)
But in the midst of this, You are here
I’m safe in Your strength
You are my refuge, I will not be moved
My heart melts at these words You say

(Chorus)
Oh be still
Oh be still
And know that I am God

(Verse 2)
I believe You are my peace inside of all this grief
I believe You’re what I need in troubled times like these

(Bridge)
Storms come and go, seasons pass and still You stay
Life ebbs and flows, time turns and still You say

This post is a part of Sunday Setlists. Go check it out.

This morning I had the privilege of coleading worship. I lead three songs and Nick, who plays the keys, lead the other three. I finally got to introduce a song I wrote a month or so ago. I posted it on this blog here, so go take a listen. It’s just a rough garageband recording but it’ll give you the idea. Overall the morning went smoothly. The response/communion time was really meaningful today. I got all choked up and couldn’t sing and was very glad to not be leading Nothing but the Blood today.

1. Unchanging – E (Tomlin)
2. From the Inside Out – C (Hillsong)
3. Unashamed – F (Starfield)
4. You are Holy – C (mine!)
5. Holy, Holy, Holy (Hymn)- C
6. Nothing but the Blood (Hymn) – F

Song 5 of 24

Finally!

This has been a super busy week so I recorded this new song I wrote. I really hate watching myself on video but I really don’t have time and it’s been so long since I’ve put a song up I decided to just do it.

The song does not have a title… nor does it have a bridge… nor is it finished. I want to add a bridge for sure. I really like it though, especially chord progression. I don’t play enough stuff in minor keys.
