Here’s our “Sunday Setlist” recap for St. Simons Community Church, Sunday Nov 30, 2008:
(when possible, song titles are linked to iTunes store)
“O Taste and See” by Brian and Jenn Johnson
Comment: this song has been off rotation for a while. A number of people just didn’t really care for it – it was a bit too “sing songy” for them, and they didn’t feel like people connected with it. I’ve really liked this song all along, and thought I’d bring it back during the Walk-In Time. The band enjoys it, and we song several people singing along.
“Holy Is The Lord” – Chris Tomlin
Comment: an old familiar for us. We had an early rehearsal last week because of the Thanksgiving Holiday, and I was intentional about choosing an easier lineup with familiar material – both for our rehearsal sake, and to have a good, solid Sunday of familiar music.
“Amazing Grace/My Chains Are Gone”
Comment: I’d originally planned on doing the Hillsong version of this, which is big, fast, and comes with a full band arrangement. I had a smaller band today (which always seems to blend nicely) so during rehearsal last week, I changed this up on the spot and opted for the soft, piano-driven version. It was the right choice.
I continued playing the piano, and took about 3-4 minutes to share a scripture from Jeremiah about how we should trust in God, and not man. I took some time to lead/pastor the people, encourage them, and verbalize the anxiety and tension that we all see in our economy, political transition, and our lives. It was a comforting time, the Scripture re-affirmed our trust in God, and I used that to connect on a relational basis with our people, and transitioned directly into the next song.
“Blessed Be Your Name” (Matt/Beth Redman)
Comment: came right ouf of the interlude above, and sang through the Chorus slowly, with only piano. After singing through the Chorus twice, the drummer clicked it off, and the full band came in at the regular, upbeat tempo.
Final week 6 of 6 of our “Ignite” series, concluding the last of two weeks on Marriage. Great job, David.
“How He Loves Us” (Kim Walker version)
As I contemplated a closer this week, I met with the Pastor to find out just how his sermon would be closing. When I heard that he was speaking on the 3 types of “love” I asked him if he might could work out the closing so that we acknowledged that even with the 3 types of “love” we are to give, we must accept God’s love for us. He did this, and “How He Loves Us” was a perfect closer.
I thought it was a great Sunday, personally. The guys in our Tech Dept. did a fantastic job, as always.
