    worship setlist @ SCC – 2010.04.11 [guest leading w/ vivien]… 

    vivien + i were invited by seattle community church (http://seattlechurch.org <- how did they score THAT url?!?!) to guest lead on the 11th.

    a beautiful sunday morning in laurelhurst!

    after getting my feet wet by leading the Q kids in worship on easter, it was now time to face the adults!
    it was cool to worship alongside this community and even cooler to see some of their congregation members that i had first met almost 13+ years ago when my brother was the youth/worship pastor at washington korean presbyterian church (wkpc). matter of fact, my brother had just guest led there before me so they were given a double-dose of the “song” brothers!
    so amazing to see how much people, their lives have changed but strangely seemed to have stayed the same.
    got a chance to worship alongside some blessed/talented worshippers/musicians.

    a BIG shout out to jin for his amazing shredding skillz… still got it after all these years and to pastor leah for coming alongside and supporting us. it felt SO good and SO right to have church and seeing her presence there! we miss you sorely! 😦

    and folks, if you’re ever in the u-dist area and want to check out an awesome person of God and a church doing some kick A stuff, swing by sinners + saints church! hopefully they’ll invite me to guest lead one of these sundays now that they’re almost legal!

    …am nervous about this coming sunday and leading at Q for the first time since 01/04/2009. have some preparation and prayer to do!

    opening set:

    • hosanna (praise is rising) [key of G] by brenton brown & paul baloche
    • revelation song [key of D -> E] by jennie lee riddle
    • holy, holy, holy [key of C] by reginald heber &  john b. dykes
    • You are holy [key of C] by george song

    closing set:

    • mighty to save [key of A] by ben fielding & reuben morgan

    vivien + george’s first recording/music video… 

    this has been TOO long in the making!
    vivien being a gifted and anointed worship leader for many years at her former church, ecc, and myself leading worship for the last 16+ years at my father’s church and then at quest (though currently on a sabbatical – will be writing more about this shortly)… we’ve always dreamt and talked about recording together.
    now with a baby on the way, we felt even more compelled to start (even if it’s as simple as this video).
    especially as we are in the midst of “dark friday“, this song rushed back all the wonderful memories vivien + i experienced when we sung this powerful song and how Christ is truly worthy alone to be praised for the sacrifice He made.
    praise God from whom all blessings flow… hope you are blessed:

    myanmar: devastation. are we numb to the number…? 

    [UPDATE: 05.13.2008 @ 03.30pm (PST)]: we will be hosting a benefit fundraiser/concert at q cafe this coming saturday, 05.17.2008 @ 7pm.
    if you’re available, please come, pray, donate, help…

    * great post from pastor leah, click here. our world truly doesn’t seem as big as it once was… what a reminder that we are called to reach out and help/heal one another.

    when reports first broke about a cyclone hitting myanmar, i remember thinking to myself… ‘oh no, not another disaster in that region of the world!‘. then i remember thinking, ‘wait a sec… what is a cyclone‘? (though, wikipedia has an entry on cyclone, i’m not sure i completely understand what it really is. if you’re a good teacher and have loads of patience, hit me up and explain this to me. coffee on me!)
    all i do know for sure? the devastation the cyclone has done to region of myanmar.
    reports early on gave the death toll and it continued and continues to grow and i fear it will never be accurately tallied… (i was honestly thinking it was going to be like part 2 of the terrible 2004 tsunami, where a quarter of a million people lost their lives.)

      I’d be happy to discuss hurricanes and cyclones, and what it means to me to help others in a time of need over coffee.

      As one who is moving to Florida in the near future, I am taking this type of news seriously. I am also looking forward to preparing my house to be a place of refuge in times of trouble, just as Christ is my refuge.

      Sometimes Wikipedia lumps too much information together. I can understand how it left you confused.

      The simplest definition of a Cyclone is a storm that is over a specific wind speed. On the Tropical Cyclone Scale section of the Wikipedia, a Cyclone definition is different depending on what area of the world you are in. For example, in the North Indian Ocean, a Severe Tropical Cyclone contains all wind speeds from 64 to 119 knots (73 to 137 miles per hour).

      120mph = 104knots = “Very Severe Tropical Cyclone” = “Category 4 Hurricaine”

      On the Chart above, when the storm reached Yangon, it was 81mph, which is a “Category 1 Hurricaine”

      koop: thanks for the breakdown! you should start http://koopipedia.org. 😉
      hope you and your wife’s move/transition to florida will be a smooth one and that you continue to do what you can to be an extension of His grace and love!

      I just spoke with a friend who returned from Thailand not too long ago. She said that although there are opportunities for relief support and help, no one is being let into the country for fear of the “white man’s” efforts to religiously/culturally convert the people. I don’t know exactly how accurate that info is, but something to pray about.
