A Collect for Purity

Latin composition

  • Deus, cui omne cor patet et omnis uoluntas loquitur, et quem nullam latet secretum: purifica per infusionem sancti spiritus cogitationes cordis nostri, ut perfecte te diligere et digne laudare mereamur, per dominum nostrum iesum christum. Amen.

English translation

  • Almighty God, to you all hearts are open, all desires known and from you no secrets are hid: cleanse the thoughts of our hearts by the inspiration of your Holy Spirit, that we may perfectly love you and worthily magnify your holy name, through Christ our Lord, Amen

Everybody has seen my church blog, but recently we upgraded the wordpress account and changed the design and code… The result is great.

On it there is the weekly sermons and archives in playable MP3 format. Also on there are all of our advertising and the Daily Bible readings from the lectionary. Take a look and let me know what you think.

St. Michael’s Charismatic Episcopal Church

While You are at it take a look at our Pastor’s blog. Favorite the thing and add it to your RSS burner of choice because more will be added all the time.

I Hate that song

April 19, 2007 — 9 Comments

I was reading Ragamuffin Soul the other day about his attempts to make Brenton Brown’s song “Everlasting God” sound like it belongs in 2007. He was frustrated it was sounding very 1990’s and didn’t like it. I made some comments and so did a bunch of others, but one comment stuck out. “Try it with your congregation and see if they like it” one guy said. Interesting…It made me think how many songs do I do in church that I hate, but do because the congregation loves them and they are brought into worship by them.

This is a tough one. It is in the same vein as “How many times are we going to do a TOMLIN song!”, and you know what I’m talking about. As Musicians we get sick of music and we have major opinions on it, but as worship leaders we need to take a back seat and look at the big picture. We need to sometimes put our preferences aside and see what does and doesn’t fit for the congregation. This may require changing songs, changing keys and even eliminating songs from set list that are really cool.
