Sunday Setlist - July 26
Blessed Be Your Name (Redman/Redman)(C)
Trading My Sorrows (Evans)(G)

My Savior, My God (Shust)(E)
You Are My World (Sampson)(G)
Let the River Flow (Evans)(E)
All Because of Jesus (Fee)(F)
"You Are My World" is a tune that made it back onto our available list in our last adjustment. We haven't played in in a few months, and it was missed. We haven't done "Beautiful One" or "Let the River Flow" in a while either, so today was like a set of new, fresh songs.
We did a great transition (if I do say so myself) between "Blessed Be Your Name" and "Trading My Sorrows." When we tagged out of "Blessed..." Aquim just kept playing the beat for two bars, then I kicked in with the opening chords of "Trading..." It was very high-energy and upbeat, with a really quick tempo, up around 180. We do the "Yes Lord..." part in three languages - English, Spanish and Creole.
We muffed up the beginning of "My Savior, My God" a little. Josh forgot that he was supposed to start it, but I don't think anyone really noticed outside the team. We just began playing, an he came in on a good beat, so it's all good.
We did "All Because of Jesus" for the first time as our second offering song, which allowed us to extend it after the offering. Emmanuelle sang the verses, and I think the vocalists did a great job. I was moderating the service, so when we finished, I just simply asked the congregation if they liked that song, and got an overwhelmingly positive response. So it's a keeper, and will find its way into the main set next week.

We also had a youth service this evening, and I played along.
