2007 a year of greatness

January 3, 2008 — 4 Comments

2007 was a fantastic year…

My kids grew older and they were so fun.. They got really into music and all my toys.

We had another baby boy

Our church did some awesome stuff and really developed itself in it’s worship, youth, mens and womens areas.

CECWorship became a place for connecting worship leaders and I was honored to become friends with so many of you.
It also connect people in my own denomination giving us even more resources as a church.

It was a great reading year. I read close to 30 books this year and Had a blast doing it.
2 of the best were:
In a pit with a lion on a snowy day – Mark Batterson
A Dangerous Act of Worship – Mark Laberton
Both are must reads

It was also a killer year for new music
Sara Groves
Radiohead
Steve Fee
Michael Neale
David Crowder Band
Paul Baloche
Vineyard Music
Mute Math

Just to name a few….

Most of all it has been a great year for God..
He has done a great work in me and is constantly honing my gifts for him.

Thanks everybody for making theis blog a crazy success.

2008 is here and CECWorship is gonna knock your socks off!

My 2008 can be summed up with one quote.

Attempt great things for God,
expect great things from God.

Happy New Year: Prayer

January 1, 2008 — 1 Comment

The Prayer of St. Patrick

I arise today
Through the strength of heaven;
Light of the sun,
Splendor of fire,
Speed of lightning,
Swiftness of the wind,
Depth of the sea,
Stability of the earth,
Firmness of the rock.

I arise today
Through God’s strength to pilot me;
God’s might to uphold me,
God’s wisdom to guide me,
God’s eye to look before me,
God’s ear to hear me,
God’s word to speak for me,
God’s hand to guard me,
God’s way to lie before me,
God’s shield to protect me,
God’s hosts to save me
Afar and anear,
Alone or in a mulitude.

Christ shield me today
Against wounding
Christ with me, Christ before me, Christ behind me,
Christ in me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me,
Christ on my right, Christ on my left,
Christ when I lie down, Christ when I sit down,
Christ in the heart of everyone who thinks of me,
Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me,
Christ in the eye that sees me,
Christ in the ear that hears me.

I arise today
Through the mighty strength
Of the Lord of creation.

- A daily prayer for the new year -
