So back to it then and maybe some new stuff for our reading pleasure

5. Hillsong United united we stand- brooke fraser…I just can’t get enough of her voice

4. Calvary Chapel Jupiters new CD- killer stuff here.

3. Dream Theater – Live at Budokan – Brilliant best of CD…these guys are the best prog rock out there..genius

2. Sara Groves – Add to the Beauty…this CD is again one of the best CD’s I have heard in years and I can’t not listen to her.

1. Michael Neale – No Greater Audience . This is my #1 slot this week because I bought it almost 4 weeks ago and cannot stop listening to it. The spirit of this worship CD is so amazing…Everytime I listen to it am am just overwhelmed …I have been talking about it in other posts…this is a worship CD that I consider to be one of the top 10 worship CD’s in the last 10 years….BUY IT NOW

ok so what are your top 5 CD’s this week?

Mandy asked “why do you lead worship…what got you there”

short question…long answer…

Since I have a ton of new people reading…here is my “Worship/Life Testimony” 

ok so normally I do the Text-Fessional within the set list post. Those days are over folks. Now I do this because I don’t have a video camera, but I am thinking of going to Audio-Fessionals. That would put me on a different list though.

Alright enough of that…So last week I had a discussion with the pastor about our services and a bunch of visitors commented that the service was too long. Let me preface by saying that almost 90% of the church goers here are roman catholic and are very used to 1 hour services. Ours ran around 1 hour 45 min. Not too long, but longer then Roman catholic service. We do readings and creed, communion, and liturgy…along with that tons of music that is woven into the service from modern to old to liturgical. That is our church identity. We call it 3 streams blended worship. My definition of blended worship is not mixing hymns with matt redman. It is mixing the old with the new. Our service is framed around the Lords table and everything culminates at communion.

The 3 streams are Charismatic (moving in the spirit…rock n roll, tongues, etc…), Sacramental (Communion etc…), and evangelical (Bible based… gotta love the word!)

So with that said we had to shorten the service a little without messing with the integrity of what we are. So I did a poll and tons of people helped me out. we shortened the sermon to 30 min and moved a little aroung and ended the service in 1.5 hours. BRILLIANT! it worked and nobody was the wiser.

Uh…moving on to the music..

Great set this week..opened with I know that my redeemer lives. Great hymn…Mark Heard did a great version of it on the at the foot of the cross CD’s from the choir.

Went into the gloria…dropped the key from D to C..

Then we broke the fast song at the start mold and went into classic rushing Wind…it was a great song to open the praise set…prepare our heart…

“Jesus Your the one Who set my spirit free”

And then right into O Praise him chorus…and the rest of the song…I love this song its a real call to worship and and illustrates us singing with all of creation and the angels above.

Jumped into You amaze me…ok this song is from Michael Neale…I was first introduced to this at the integrity worship conference a few months ago and I can’t stop listening to it. This song just tugs at my spirit. It was amazing.

“You amaze me, You amaze me…and I’m overwhelmed by Your great love and mercy”

that line…wow He is amazing.. and unfathomable.

We did My new song that I co-wrote with my dad More of You. This song has really become a favorite with our church. People come up to me every week because the words just get into there sprirt.

“Take the world, give me You….Take my Heart Lord and make it new”

Communion we did the sanctus and mystery of faith (Liturgical music) ..And then into one of the best cross songs ever Sweetly Broken. Brilliant song and really makes you focus and tune into what Christ did for us. Then into super slow version of bless his name…and when communion ended I sped it up to normal tempo and volume. The 2 songs were perfect….thank you for the cross…thanks you for the blood….and then into…come sing for joy and bless his name.

Then we ended with Never Let Go…nuff said that song is just freakin’ great…and the congregation just loves it.

Ok there it is…see you next week; same bat channel.
