Pastor Craig has been preaching a series called “Core Values”, and he ended that series with a message called “Life”. He talked about how life is precious, and how our society has de-valued it’s worth by the plethora of violence in our media, among other things.
The corporate worship focused on the greatness of God. We were able to “kick things up a notch” with the addition of drums. It is amazing how much of a difference they make, plus it opens up a world of songs that you really cannot do without them.
Now, here are the songs:
All the Earth Will Sing Your Praises by Paul Baloche - Great up-beat opener for the service.
10,000 Reasons (Bless the Lord) by Jonas Myrin & Matt Redman – This is the first time I have ever used this song, and it is one of those that has continued to grow on me, and I find it running through my head. I also just found out it won a Grammy this year!
Enough by Chris Tomlin & Louie Giglio – I love this song, as it speaks to the sufficiency of God.
You Are So Good To Me by Don Chaffer, Ben Pasley & Robin Pasley – This is one of my favorite songs, and I would likely do it every Sunday, if I could get away with it!
Shout to the Lord by Darlene Zschech – We ended our service with this classic chorus. I like using it from time to time, as it is very familiar, and, I think, stands the test of time.
