My Worship Confessional for SSCC
Today we start a new series called “Lost and Found”. It’s based on the story of the Prodigal Son and from what I’ve heard in our planning/creative meetings … it’s going to be one incredible series. There’s so much more to this story than the “young prodigal coming home”.
For those who follow my blog regularly, you’ll know I was sick most of the week. (For those who don’t follow this blog regularly … like, WASSUP WITH THAT??) I didn’t feel super creative this week but prayerfully considered how to weave our worship around this incredible story of grace and mercy.
We came up with a great setlist of some of our newer material and lots of our “reservoir” songs … songs that have been standards here at SSCC for years. Our rehearsal was one of the quickest ever … no small relief to a guy who was exhausted and ready to crash.
The familiarity of today’s music was apparent as our congregation lifted their voices loud and strong throughout the entire time we sang. I love Sundays like this. Simple … authentic. In addition, I’ve lost one of my primary electric guitarists so all of a sudden I find myself without the depth I’d like to have on that position. This week, rather than scramble for a guitarist, I opted to keep things more acoustic. Our band was:
I think it sounded good and felt very natural. The songs were:
No Other Name (Todd Fields, Northpoint Live)
Your Grace is Enough (one of my all time favorites, a classic for us now)
I Stand Amazed (How Marvelous) – great hymn
Amazing Grace (My Chains Are Gone) – kept in lower key of E, perfect flow from I Stand Amazed
Hosanna (Hillsongs) – nice arrangement sans electric guitar
Jon Blankenship (our Youth Pastor) filled in for Pastor David Yarborough this week and did a fantastic job opening up the series.
Our closer was an appropriate song that really brought it all together:
“How Deep the Father’s Love” (Stuart Townend)
I did this from the grand piano … David did a great job picking on acoustic and the vocals were strong. It was sweet!
That’s a wrap for us. Now it’s time for YOU to share.
