A very cool Sunday. Great music and some major answers to prayer. One of my youth has been praying her mom would come to church. She has been taking some major leaps of faith and even annointed her mom with oil this week and prayed for her. Well this week God honored her faithfulness when her mom asked her If she could go to church with her. AWESOME! She had a tough day because the enemy is pushing back so if you can give her a quick prayer and her family that would be great.

I think overall the set was perfect. Everything went smooth this week. After service we had a lunchin and discussed as a church family or pending move and our churches options. Everything went great. JustĀ  a real good Sunday.

It seems it has been a while since i have posted a set list or done a confessional. I stopped doing the confessionals just because I thought they were kind of dying off. Not posting the set lists was pure laziness. Recently I have had a few people ask me why I was not posting my set lists any more. My answer…I don’t know.

Then Fred Mckinnon tells me ” hey man join my set list carnival.!” So i guess here it is, back by popular demand. THE SET LIST. Welcome back old friend.

This was an interesting sunday for me. I have been dealing with many things with God lately and came into the service with high expectations for God. I started worship and it was like playing in pudding. It was thick and sluggish. It felt like nobody wanted to be there. I just wanted to walk off and chalk it up to an off week.

During offering I planned to do From the Inside out. I was sitting at the sound board praying and I decided to play Healer instead. This is a song nobody including those in the band did not know.

At this point I had expectation that God would meet me where I was and really just put aside everything else. It was like just He and I were in the room together.

I played it and my heart broke. More on that later. (teaser)

Worship Text-Fessional:
Wow what a crazy week…thanksgiving came and flew by. We had an awesome thanksgiving.
There are 5 churches in the area that the pastors have been meeting together for prayer every few weeks. One of the pastors is ours (my dad). The others are a non denom, Baptist, Evangelical Free, Charismatic Eucharistic Church (thats us), and A presbyterian. So one day they decided to have a Day before thanksgiving service at the Presbyterian Church and invite all 5 churches. Have any of you ever tried that? It almost never works. Nobody shows up and it’s awkward because the Charismatic guys are afraid of scaring the baptists etc etc. So we went with lousy expectations. I was asked to co lead worship and we didn’t know what to do. We decided on Open the eyes, Forever, and blessed be your name. The service opened with the churches trumpet player and huge pipe organ. Wow the hymns like that are sweet. Then 3 pastors preached then worship then hymn and 2 more pastors. Each one preached for 5 min. Let me tell you this service was the start of something huge…it was brilliant. The pastors preached that we are better together. IT’s obvious words but I think that maybe once in my Christian life I may see some pastors actual act on that.

Sunday service:
Good service this week. It’s the week before advent and it’s called Christ the king. We opened with Before the Throne of God which went ok but it my hands were not doing what my brain wanted.
Did a prayer and jumped into my new favorite song Say so. This is a killer song for just getting fired up for Christ…the rest of the Praise set was good as well ending in an original Hallelujah Love Song (written by me and Debbie Hanlon) As a matter of fact I just picked up a web cam. Horay for jumping on board 5 years late. lol. I still have to tweak the audio settings because I’ve got a little crackle, but here is me testing out the cam with that song. (expect much much more, so add me to your youtube watch list)

If you see any originals and want chords or anything let me know because I would love for other churches to be blessed by this stuff as well.
Before the sermon we did thats my King video…AWESOME!
Communion came and we did a few including my new slow fav. Nothing without you: Bebo Norman. If your not doing this one, you should.

All in all a good service, but for me that thanksgiving service was the highlight of the week.
Cya next time. Same bat channel
