    worship setlist @ Q – 2008.04.27… 

    this was one of those sundays where everything kinda gel-ed and fell into place. am waiting to hear the recording, but feel that everything blended/complimented one another.
    i truly believe recording every week has helped all of us learn how to accent and help bring fullness to the set list… teaching us how to be smarter players.

    ===========================================
    welcome/opening set:
    – everything [key of A] by chris tomlin

    • Majesty (here i am) [key of A] by martin smith & stuart garrard

    – doxology [key of A] by thomas ken

    invitation/eucharist:

    • God with us [key of A] by barry graul, bart millard, jim bryson, mike scheuchzer, nathan cochran, & robby shaffer

    offertory/closing song:

    • everlasting God [key of A] by brenton brown & ken riley

    worship setlist @ Q – 2008.04.20… 

    in preparation of ‘earth day‘ coming up on tuesday, 04.22.2008, our church showed a clip from one of the more recent, heavy-impacting web-o-mentary on my life: “story of stuff” which i blogged about.
    i’m glad we showed this, and hopefully it will cause people to check out the web-o-mentary in its entirety when they have a free moment.
    we offered free energy-saving light bulbs for those interested in making the switch…
    i’m hoping to be more and more environmentally conscious/friendly… please hold me accountable! 😉

    ===========================================
    welcome/opening set:
    – come, just as you are [key of E] by joe sabolick

    happy white day? happy black day?… 

     
    photo from reuters news:
    Participants eat Jajangmyeon, Chinese-style noodles topped with a thick sauce of black bean paste to celebrate “Black Day” for love in South Korea. Lonely hearts try to ease their pain by diving head first into bowls of noodles. Black Day is marked by people who have not found love. They dress in dark colours and commiserating over meals of black food, with the dish of choice being Jajangmyeon.

    =====================================================
    p.e. recently wrote about Q.S.M. and Q.S.W. (Quest Single Men & Quest Single Women) recently on his blog. and the comments it generated was quite amazing, humorous and insightful. perhaps we’ll one day create http://www.Qharmony.com ;).

      Good grief. I didn’t realize this was real. The singles from my church up in Vancouver all got together to do the jajangmyeong thing on Valentine’s Day, but I thought it was all just a big joke.

      What be up with them Koreans anyway, GEORGE? Singleness ain’t bad at all. (Neither is jajangmyeong, on the other hand…)

      DA: yeah, didn’t realize “Black Day” was real either… the things you learn on the inthermet.
      viv and I will go eat jajangmyeon and watch a movie with you, daniel… 😉
      and everything will be fine as long as “Green Day” doesn’t achieve worldwide fame.

      Those koreans are so melodramatic. I guess that explains their love for melodramas…. Funny thing is, I’m dressed in mostly black today and have an incredible craving for jajangmyeon…. I’m also feeling very melodramatic….Coincidence? I think not! Dinner on you…pick me up….

    • georgesong 9:21 pm on April 16, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      haha! 🙂
      will pick you up @ 7pm…

    • Daniel Azuma 2:41 am on April 17, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      Oh, I wouldn’t mind “Green Day” as long as it has to do more with environmental/ecological awareness as opposed to what the, umm, Koreans do with it…

    • LK 9:06 pm on April 21, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      oh geez, those sappy melodramatic koreans.
      i guess as long as it’s not taken to the extreme, validating the vast emotional depth/experiences of ppl makes life somewhat more interesting.

    worship setlist @ Q – 2008.04.06… 

    this past sunday we had andy liu (founder of buddy tv and the non-profit org. future hope) share alongside amy wagner and hilda romero de bojórquez of a-brazo who were up here from el salvador. what a rare treat to have the ladies here in the seattle area!
    what an amazing story hilda has… in regards to giving up a successful life/career to start up a-brazo after the terrible earthquake that hit el savlador in 2001!
    i had a chance to go down to el salvador w/ the future hope gang last year. it was an amazing trip, with amazing people, and amazing food… and to see the joy, faith in God of the people we encountered was tremendous…

    to listen to an audio clip of them sharing during our service’s ‘inner-view’, click here.

    and pastor leah (weird to say that… but it is getting more normal) did a great job preaching on acts 5:17-42 “called to persecution“.
    she’s definitely putting her m.div training into good use! take a listen to it if you have time.

    spu worship: “reconciled: a gospel symphony…” 

    spu-reconciled.jpg
    Seattle Pacific University’s acclaimed Gospel Choir and Wind Symphony present Reconciled, a rousing concert blending two American genres into a soul-stirring new sound.
    Showcasing the premiere of “Reconciled: A Gospel Oratorio” by award-winning Seattle composer Gerry Jon Marsh. The work was commissioned by SPU’s Center for Worship.

    Directed by Stephen Michael Newby and Gerry Jon Marsh.”
    =======================================================

    after worship @ Q, i had the opportunity to go watch/be a part/and to be led in worship with spu’s ‘reconciled‘ symphony… what a treat!
    as the above banner states: “an entirely new sound that stirs the soul”… i would have to agree.
    the clashing and cohesiveness between the different styles/delivery of music was incredible. a spiritually stimulating experience on so many levels… hearing the sound of the symphony get in tune, to the funk of rhythm section/band and their infection groove, to the female opera singer, stephen michael newby’s rich and full voice and the 100+ choir. 

    and it was performed at seattle first presbyterian church in downtown. the sanctuary in there was quite magnificent. the various scripture passages on the inside walls of the church was very cool.

    big kudos to andy carson who killed it on the trumpet!

      Didn’t know you went. I must confess I’ve yet to experience this concert. What a shame.

      PB: yeah, vivien got the invite from her friends… and told me about it. it was definitely an experience of sight (the beauty of that church, the diversity on stage) and sound (self-explanatory!). we’ll go together next time! 😉

    worship setlist @ Q – 2008.03.30 [baptism]… 

    worship was led by jin this past sunday.
    also helping out was katey.
    great to have her back! 🙂

    seems like we had a lot going on the past few sundays (with praise+worship+prayer-centric/palm sunday and last week being easter/resurrection sunday) at quest and this sunday was no different. we had another reason to celebrate b/c we got to witness and participate in the baptism of several members of our church.

    there’s something so powerful about witnessing a baptism. to imagine that Jesus and john the baptist had engaged in the the very same act.
    and though each baptism was meaninful, i especially connected with amanda l.
    to hear her story of why she wanted to be baptized was probably the story many can relate to. of knowing about Jesus, but not really knowing Him on a personal level.
    when her mom shared a few words and started crying, it triggered a tidal wave of tears. i was not immuned to this…
    and on lighter-note, hearing torger’s son, fynn share was TOO funny! kids truly do say the darndest thing! 😉

    it was a blessing to see God take the ill-prepared, poorly-trained and broken-hearted members of our team that morning, and turn it into something that could only be explained as glorious. i am SO grateful God is greater than us. He ROCKS.

    * and a side note: while on the drums… for the first time, i got a blister from playing.
    does that make me a hardcore kick-A drummer or a sucky one that doesn’t know how to properly hold a stick? remains to be seen…
    😉
