Band Name: HELP!

March 18, 2008 — 33 Comments

I need every bodies help!

As many of you have been reading I put together a multi-church worship team here in the area and I know God has some big things for this crew in the future.

With that said the band needs a name.

There are a few directions I want to go with it. either in the vein of unity or something having to do with worship changing or stirring up the area.

So far I have one name.

DELVE – the word means to pour into, to loosen or upturn the earth.
I love the connotation of that. My keyboard guy though says it reminds him of Devo..oh boy!

So everybody who reads this thing help me out. That means all 400 of you.

#1. do you like Delve and it’s meaning

#2. got a better idea…love to hear it..

Think fast!

thanks

Here is a great responsive reading from Dan Wilt. I love this and wish I could use it this year, but I already have my service planned. Do yourself a favor and go check out his great blog.

St. Patrick’s Prayer

March 17, 2008 — 2 Comments

I arise today
Through a mighty strength, the invocation of the Trinity,
Through the belief in the threeness,
Through confession of the oneness
Of the Creator of Creation.

I arise today
Through the strength of Christ’s birth with his baptism,
Through the strength of his crucifixion with his burial,
Through the strength of his resurrection with his ascension,
Through the strength of his descent for the judgment of Doom.

I arise today
Through the strength of the love of Cherubim,
In obedience of angels,
In the service of archangels,
In hope of resurrection to meet with reward,
In prayers of patriarchs,
In predictions of prophets,
In preaching of apostles,
In faith of confessors,
In innocence of holy virgins,
In deeds of righteous men.

I arise today
Through the strength of heaven:
Light of sun,
Radiance of moon,
Splendor of fire,
Speed of lightning,
Swiftness of wind,
Depth of sea,
Stability of earth,
Firmness of 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 host to save me
From snares of devils,
From temptations of vices,
From everyone who shall wish me ill,
Afar and anear,
Alone and in multitude.

I summon today all these powers between me and those evils,
Against every cruel merciless power that may oppose my body and soul,
Against incantations of false prophets,
Against black laws of pagandom
Against false laws of heretics,
Against craft of idolatry,
Against spells of witches and smiths and wizards,
Against every knowledge that corrupts man’s body and soul.

Christ to shield me today
Against poison, against burning,
Against drowning, against wounding,
So that there may come to me abundance of reward.
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 when I arise,
Christ in the heart of every man who thinks of me,
Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me,
Christ in every eye that sees me,
Christ in every ear that hears me.

I arise today
Through a mighty strength, the invocation of the Trinity,
Through belief in the threeness,
Through confession of the oneness,
Of the Creator of Creation.

Here is what we are doing for Good Friday. I took the order of service from Jordan because it was fantastic. I added and took away a bunch of stuff.

Everything in Red are the songs being sung. The service layout with going to black is really a Tenebrae Service which is typically done on Maundy Thursday, but I really like this order and I think it is going to be fantastic. We will end it with writing our sins on paper, lighting them and putting them in a bowl on the altar

We are working on some projected visuals for each section along with working on the look with some large paintings in the vein of the Jesus Painter.

MAKE SURE YOU READ ON…so CLICK the more button. Any Thoughts?
