    worship setlist @ Q – 2010.04.18 [the return of “song”]… 

    well, after finally getting reimbursed by P.E. (for that pizza i paid for during our first church gathering), i stepped down as quest’s worship director/leader (since our church’s inception) back in january of 2009.
    since then, it has been a strange and necessary path i’ve been on this last year and 3 mos.
    though i was sad to walk away from leading worship (leading for the last 16+ years of my life), the flesh part of my nature looked forward to that first sunday AFTER… when i would get to sleep in and not have to awake at the crack of dawn and get to the church and prepare for worship and all the other logistics involved. bottom line: my soul and all was just = tired.
    i was also wanting to be intentional and focus as much of me to my marriage and revel in being a newlywed!
    the first few weeks were AWESOME! coming later on sundays w/ my wife and knowing the weight, the responsibilities were no longer mine (sorry j.Hong 🙂)! i was actually looking forward to anonymity… to be able to be a guest who slips in and out w/o being noticed by others. i felt i had poured out so much of myself for so long, that i was trying to pull up my guard and desperately retain the little i felt i had left… to see if i could re-establish myself apart from my former position and what i was (a fellow ‘g.song‘ wrote a great post similar to this!).
    had pretty wild swings with the highest of highs and some funky bizaare lows. i tried de-constructing what i thought i knew and examine/question everything else i didn’t… and all of this brought me to the conclusion: i know less now than i ever thought before!
    yet, one thing remained constant and i found it being the reassurance i always returned to: God.
    i found myself wrestling and wrestling and hoping to unearth something profound that would unlock everything i had built-up in my mind and answer all of my fears, doubts and questions… but, it hasn’t happened. i’ve come to better accept (in my current season in life), that that’s not how God is choosing to work. and though difficult at times, i am finding myself wanting to know more and draw closer to and simply worship Him alone regardless of all other things. i have nothing to offer back… just me.
    my soon-to-be-born daughter, i hope you can respect your daddy and know that i live to serve God and the family He has blessed me with!

    anyway,  i’ve rambled on long enough…  😉
    i got a chance to work with some of the most gifted and kick-A people (shredder, MJ, rhythm engineer, nit.soh, jin-keys, yo-yo Lav, + won’t u be my “nabor”?), on my return sunday to Q! it wouldn’t have been nearly a blessing to me and a WHOLE LOTTA JOY if it weren’t for their mad skillz!
    though a rough recording taken straight out from the board, here’s a link to the audio:

    worship @ Q – 2010.04.18 recording

    His blessings + peace…

    welcome/opening set:
    – God with us [key of D] by barry graul, bart millard, jim bryson, mike scheuchzer, nathan cochran, & robby shaffer

    – nothing but the blood (hymn) [key of E] by robert lowry

    – silence [key of A] by charlie lowell, dan haseltine, matt odmark & stephen mason

    offertory/closing song:
    – hosanna (praise is rising) [key of G] by brenton brown & paul baloche

    a video for the communion song… an unbelievable song by jars of clay  that haunts me to the core with its honest lyrics + cut you to the core rawness:

    when i grow up… 

    i hope to be as good a guitar player as this 12-year old (either that or i’m going to throw my taylor away and give up :()!
    as a 9 year-old, sungha jung learned to play guitar while watching trace bundy (i have never seen anyone use more capos than this guy!) on youtube and the rest, as they say, is history…
    now he’s here in the u.s. on tour playing together with trace. how cool is that?
    anyway, joseph + i had the pleasure of being @ the triple door (an uber-cool venue, btw!) to record this magical night of music!
    here’s a clip of them deciding to do an impromptu rendition of u2’s “with or without you“…

    (More …)

        @Daniel Azuma: sungha said it takes him a few day to learn an arrangement/song… that’s sick. 😐

      Hey how tall are you? How tall is Sungha? Sorry just wanna know..

      • georgesong 8:07 pm on February 7, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        @mindy: i’m 6’4″ on good days (5’5″ on other ;))… i would say sungha’s 5’3″? but then again, he’s only 12 and probably has more growing to do.
