Today, we looked at Mark 14:12-31 - Judas' betrayal, The Last Supper, & Jesus prediction of the failure of Peter and all the disciples.
So, who is invited to the table? Thankfully it's people who fail Jesus, others and themselves. Because Jesus' broken body and shed blood saves people who fail. Listen to the message online.
I led worship in the 2nd and 3rd services.
2nd-3rd service team: Aaron on drums, Brady on bass, Mitch on electric guitar, Seth on piano, Cris on keys, April and Bren on vox, Philip on acoustic guitar and vox, and Travis on acoustic guitar and vox. VOCAL TEAM: Kelley, Julie B, Lisandro, Danielle, and newbies Bryan and Angela (great job y'all!) TECH: Rocky - Lights and production, Marcelo - audio, Scott - graphics, Sarah - stage manager & Trent - audio assistant.
Morning Setlist (song titles link to iTunes - artist, not the songwriter, is listed):
- Today Is The Day - Paul Baloche [C] - I like Lincoln Brewster's version better, but Paul's feels a little more congregational. We introduced this as a new song, and I plan to use it all month.
- Jesus Paid It All - Kristian Stanfill [Bb] - I could easily "overplay" this song. I never get tired of it. I hope the people aren't!
- How He Loves - David Crowder [Bb] - Week 2 of How He Loves - this time with no upfront explanation. I have some good comments on this song. But I also appreciated a comment from someone who couldn't relate to God's love being like a hurricane, because hurricanes are destructive.
- Offering Song: The Love of God - Mercy Me [Bb-C] - I talked about this song in the service. The language is archaic, but I love the picture this hymn writer gives us in this verse: Could we with ink the oceans fill/And were the skies of parchment made/Were every stalk on earth a quill/And every man a scribe by trade/To write the love of God above/Would drain the oceans dry/Nor could the scroll contain the whole/Though stretched from sky to sky
- Communion Songs: The More I Seek You - Kari Jobe (Gateway Worship) [D] & The Wonderful Cross - Michael W. Smith [D]
