Suday Setlist - July 5

Happy Fourth of July Weekend! Here's the setlist from Gospel Light Community Church:


Oh Lord, You're Beautiful (Green)(D)

Main Set:

One Way (Houston/Douglass)(B)
When the Spirit of the Lord (McCurdy)(Dm)
He Reigns (Furler/Taylor)(C)
Mighty to Save (Fielding/Morgan)(A)
You Are My King (Amazing Love)(Foote)(D)


All About You (Cruis-Ratcliff/Houghton)(E)

We were a little shorthanded this weekend, as Justin's brother got married Saturday night, and there were things for the wedding party today. So we did the set with no piano. I missed having Justin around, as it made me have to stick to more basic stuff on guitar, but it's all good. The wedding was amazing, and service today was just as good.

"When the Spirit of the Lord" is a song originally written for Fred Hammond, but Salvador redid the arrangement as "David Danced." The arrangement we do is much closer to the Salvador version, with Latin flavor to it. (Check out Salvador doing the song here, to introduce everyone both to a fun song, and a great band.)

"He Reigns" is a great simple song for worship, both to play and to sing. Usually I play electric on it, but with no keys I played acoustic for most of the tunes. It's one of the songs on the album, and young and old love it.

This was also the last week for Pastor Jim as our senior pastor. He and Andrea are planting a church in the Bronx later in the year, and so after 27 years, it is time for him to move on. I had the priviledge of moderating this service, and bringing him up to preach for the last time as senior pastor. Next Sunday, Pastor Pedro will be installed as Gospel Light's new senior pastor. We also had a visit by some very old and dear friends; a former elder who moved to Florida several years ago made a surprise visit with his family.

A new song we ran through at rehearsal was "Sweetly Broken" by Jeremy Riddle.

It seems like it might be a nice tune for an altar call, or a relfective moment. We're also starting to break in a new keyboard player, which will help with some of the team's flexibility.
