Sunday Setlist - August 8
Here's todays setlists from Gospel Light Community Church, and also Lighthouse Fellowship Church in Bridgeport, CT.
God of Wonders (Byrd/Hindalong)(G)
Blessed Be Your Name (Redman)(C)
Glory to God Forever (Fee/Beeching)
From the Inside Out (Houston)(C
The Stand (Houston)(G)
Give to the Lord (Kenoly)(C)
"God of Wonders" wasn't supposed to be on the list. I was noodling on my acoustic at the end of rehearsal and started playing it, and suddenly we were all like "We gotta do that song!" so we swapped out another one for it. We did it in a very Third Day way, me on acoustic and Daniel on electric.
The other songs were pretty much straight up, and sounded good today. We've only done "Glory to God Forever" about six times, but I like it more every time.
It's hard to do justice to a Ron Kenoly song without a brass section and a two hundred-member choir, but we give it a whirl. Everyone loves this song, so it works. If your not familiar with it, there's a video of the master doing it below.
At Lighthouse, we did "Blessed Be Your Name", "God of Wonders" and "From the Inside Out." LHFC is about as opposite a room as you can get from GLCC; our church is as wide as it is long, has a low acoustic tile ceiling and carpeting, so the room doesn't affect the sound much. LHFC is in an old Methodist church building, with a long sanctuary and high cathedral ceiling. Lots of hardwood everywhere. The room is very live, and hard to dial in a good mix, but I think we're getting there, and today sounded and felt really good.
Next week is our annual Father and Son campout, so I'll be reporting from the woods of upstate New York.
