Sunday Set List #25 10/4/09

Medical Lake Community Church

It was good to be back in church after two weeks on vacation, so no setlist posts.  My wife and I celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary with a New England cruise and had a great time together enjoying the cruise and the beautiful New England ports of call: Providence, Bar Harbor, St. John, New Brunswick, and Boston.

Our two scheduled vocalist didn’t show up for practice Thursday night; we just pressed on and went with who showed; it’s all good! I gave Brian a break on the drums by requesting that he play electric guitar and have Brad do the drums instead.  Couldn’t get my Guitar pedal to work, so I just went straight into the board from my acoustic (checked out the pedal again after the service this morning and discovered I had my “Ins” and “Outs” backwards, oops!!!)

The service went well; attendance was lighter than usual. The worship team was tight musically, and Brian joined me on parts of songs to add emphasis and some tasteful harmonies.  Pastor Mark had a hard hitting sermon challenging us to take inventory of the stuff in our life that distracts and keeps us from following Jesus more fully.  He took that theme right into the Lord’s Supper and I could feel God’s Spirit moving powerfully through his remarks, the prayers and the songs which all connected together as we partook of the elements and remembered all that God has done for us through Jesus. Yes, it was good to be in the house of the Lord this morning worshipping God together.  Here are the songs we did:

Pine Lodge Corrections Center for Women

My son and daughter-in-law flew in on Friday night and out early this morning.  It was great to see them; however, three straight crashes at 11 pm combined with successive early rise times caught up with me!  Couldn’t stay awake this afternoon, so took a three hour nap this afternoon, so I would have enough energy for tonight.

I don’t know what it is about Pine Lodge, but it always seems that I receive more than I give.  Tonight was no exception.  Chaplain Dave wasn’t there so I gave the message in addition to the worship, so the 50 minute service flew by.  The ladies were responsive as always, especially to the two closing songs.  “Who Am I?” is a favorite of theirs (and mine) and “Blessed Be Your Name” is always a good reminder to praise God regardless of your situation.  I know prison life is difficult for women, so I try to have songs that remind them that God has not forgotten them.  Here are the songs we did:

That wraps up a rich and full day for me: doing songs with the children, teaching adult Sunday School, music for two different worship services, and a sermon. God is good!!!
