Behind The Song: The God Of Our Fathers

Our church is going through a series called, "The God Of Our Fathers," so I decided to write a song to accompany the series (yes, it has the same name). I'm a huge fan of churches writing their own songs (I've done so twice with this one and that one). There is something powerful about…Read more Behind The Song: The God Of Our Fathers

Tick Tock Goes The Clock (Set List – 07/30/17)

reflections: I tend to talk in between songs on Sunday mornings (which is probably no surprise to you due to my extensive amount of blog posts). I'm mostly talking to myself. It's easy to autopilot during worship music sets so I consciously fight against it by verbally reminding myself of why we're singing. Simply put, I believe not…Read more Tick Tock Goes The Clock (Set List – 07/30/17)

My Sweet Lonely and Broken Heart (Set List – 07/15/17)

reflections: What a blessing this past weekend was to my soul. Musically, we did well! We didn't play perfectly, but I felt a sense of peace throughout our team that morning. Our hearts seemed to be in the right place. We knew that if we did our best, we could trust God to do the…Read more My Sweet Lonely and Broken Heart (Set List – 07/15/17)

Set List – 06/18/17

highlights: We sang We Fall Down from our knees and it was very humbling for me. After reflecting on Psalm 95:6-7, we kneeled before God together and offered Him our crowns. None of us laid down the same "crown." For some, it was "good health" or "getting my dream job." For others, it was "control of…Read more Set List – 06/18/17

Set List – 06/11/17

highlights: I've found Holy Spirit to be a strong opening song for church. The lyrics really set the mood not only for the worship music set, but for the entire church service. This past weekend was evidence of this. We opened the service with Holy Spirit and afterwards reflected on Romans 15:13. I could feel the room…Read more Set List – 06/11/17

Set List – 06/04/17

highlights: This was a notably more connected Sunday morning, I'd say. Ryan did a great job of tying his sermon to the songs before and after it. I intentionally choose songs to support the topics and Scriptures that our pastors preach on so it was nice to hear/feel validation on this effort from Ryan. Yay for teamwork.…Read more Set List – 06/04/17

Set List – 05/21/17

highlights: My favorite part of last weekend was the band. Everyone playing was God-ordained and I don't say that lightly. It has been difficult finding musicians to play on Sunday mornings, especially as summer approaches. This week in particular was notably more difficult. I made over 30 phone calls to different musicians in the area and no one…Read more Set List – 05/21/17
