worship recap – cutting songs… again!

What an interesting weekend we had.  Pastor Dave was preaching on how God understands anger.  We (and by we I mean me) had the brilliant idea of doing the song “God of wrath” as an intro to the message.  We listened to it, rehearsed it, created a video to introduce it, rehearsed it again, then rehearsed it again and finally decided to ditch it about 10 minutes before the service started.  I’m glad we did.  It was just too weird.  Sorry Crowder…  it’s a great song, just not something that works in a Church setting…  at least not our Church setting.  I have to say that the band adjusted well.  I’m so lucky to have such a flexible team of musicians!!!

Here’s our setlist:

Sanctuary (The Cult) – yes, we did…  See below for details
All we need (Hall)
Everlasting God (Brewster’s version)
-welcome-
God of wrath (Crowder) Walk by faith (Camp)
-message-
You are the one (Brewster)
-offering-
You are the one / solo & chorus / (Brewster)
-dismissal-
You are the one / more solo & chorus / (This song stinkin’ rocks!)

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that our drummer Mike did a re-write of The Cult song Sanctuary.  The words go something like this…

Verse 1
Oh the Godless Path,  makes my Heart Burn
Yeah the Godless Path, makes my Soul, makes my Soul yearn

Verse 2
The Promise of His Love, Keeps me Alive
Yeah the Promise of your Love, Keeps me Alive, keeps a me Alive

And the Word. The Word Lifts me High
And the Word and the Word. The Word lifts me High

Verse 3
The Promise of His Love. Keeps me Alive
The Promise of Your Love Keeps me Alive, Keeps me Alive

In Jesus I will Find  Sanctuary  (ALL)
In Jesus We will Find Sanctuary  (ALL)

The Word. The Word Lifts me High
And the Word and the Word. The Word Lifts me High
And the Word and the Word And the Word, The Word lifts me High.
And the Word and the Word and the Word and the Word.
The Word Lifts me High

    hehehe God of Wrath.

    I totally agree. That song may work in an album context, but it’s not exactly what people are expecting to hear on a Sunday morning. Which I suppose could be good if that’s the effect you’re going for; but most of the time…ya. No. hehehe I completely agree with your decision, my friend! 🙂
