They Showed up

September 26, 2007 — 10 Comments

Of course I forgot to tell anybody they were suppose to show up.

Yup thats right…We have lost a few musicians in the band, but I don’t want to sacrifice the sound. Enter in Ableton Live 6 and the M-Audio Axiom 49. I first was introduced to it by watching Robbie Reider lead worship and I loved it. Then Digital worship and Fred. I have been playing with them for a few hours and have learned a little bit. It will take some time but my hope is to have a foot controlled band in a box in service to fill in the sound. So far I love it. It is way more intuitive than Reason 3.0. I have been reading everything I can on digitaworship and hopefully he isn’t MIA because I am gonna need some help soon. Great sounds. and of course wish there was more that came with it, but thats the nature of most things. They always want you to buy more.

I got an amazing price on these through my contact at guitar center. and remember if you want him as a contact also just email me.

Anybody else using this? or wish they were?

Blended Worship Conference?

September 4, 2007 — 13 Comments

There is a little buzz in the CECWorship camp and I wanted to pose this question to everybody who reads this. In the CEC (my denomination) we are working on a worship conference for next year. One idea is to make it similar to Integrity with the way the sponsor seminars4worship. This would make the conference not just for one denomination but open to all.
It would be a blended worship conference. Seminars would include: guitar, bass, vocals, keys, drums, misc instruments, digital techniques, Innovative slide/presentation design, Web/blog presence, blending hymns with modern, hymns, communion, liturgy, prayers, creeds, and spoken word, choirs, how to have worship without a band, worship flow, sensitivity to the spirit, song writing, and much much more.

Ok so the questions of the day.

Would you go to a Blended Worship Conference in the Northeast in 2008 sposored by the CEC and CECWorship?

What would you like to see at a conference like that?

How does the Fall of 2008 sound?

Welcome back to one of the original Text-Fessionals. woot!.
Pretty great sunday this week. I opened with Raise up the Crown (a hail the power) from the Passion Hymns CD. I love this re-arrangemen. If you don’t have that CD and you have been living under a rock on a remote island. Find yourself a boat and get thee to your nearest CD store now!.

We did the Gloria this week in D and went right into More than Ever. Robbie Reider is one of my favorite worship leaders and this song is brilliant. We have been practicing it for a year now and never introduced it because of the tons of other new stuff to do. This week we did it and I think the congregation really loved it. It seemed a little forced to go into In Christ alone next. There are some limitations when you are lacking a band like we are right now. Ending a song doesnt feel like an actual ending so to cut right into a hymn was a little wierd. The lyrics however are awesome.
We ended the praise with Vicky beeching’s Above all Else. great lyrics and just a real nice slow song. It really makes you focus on Christ.

Jesus, my passion in life is to know You
May all other goals bow down toThis journey of loving You more
Jesus, You’ve showered Your goodness on me
Given Your gifts so freely
But there’s one thing I’m longing for
Hear my heart’s cry
And my prayer for this life

Above all else
Give me Yourself

During offering I did my communion Song. I ended up doing it in F#. I love this song. gets me ever time. It is Christ talking to us. Telling us that going to the cross was for us because we are His children made in Him.

You are a child of God
fearfully and wondrously made
holy anointed one
You were created in me
nothing compares to My love

We did a couple of oldies for communion. I could sing and Better is one day. I still love those songs. Classics.
And then we ended repeating More Than Ever.

All in all a great service. the sermon was on Jonah and will be the next few weeks. This week was taking notice of the storms in our life.

I will see you back next week. CAIO!

How was your sunday?
