    worship setlist @ women’s N.O.W. – 2010.04.17… 

    viv was invited by the worship leading phenom, gail song bantum (who has a cool maiden last name, might i add… and totally appropriate/awesome when you’re a worship leader!) to help with quest‘s 2nd women’s n.o.w. (n.ight o.f w.orship).

    i was really excited for viv to get involved with this event b/c it had been several years since she had last led worship/been involved w/ the worship ministry at her old church, evangelical chinese church, a.k.a. e.c.c. (though we had just guest-led the previous weekend @ s.c.c.), and more importantly, because i know how gifted and passionate she is about singing and praising God with the talent He has blessed her with!
    they had a rock-solid group of ladies helping w/ the worship band and pastor deanza dropping some serious logic centering on the theme of “identity.” and at the last minute brian bantum + i stepped in to help out on bass + electric guitar, respectively (though they brilliantly rocked the joint they really didn’t need us!). thanks for helping me not be the only guy in the house that night, brian! 😉

    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:

    • holy, holy, holy [key of C] by reginald heber &  john b. dykes
    • You are holy [key of C] by george song

    worship setlist @ Q KIDS – 2010.04.04 [Easter]… 

    thanks to katey, i ended my year plus hiatus from leading worship on of all sundays… easter sunday!
    i was invited to lead worship for the kids ministry @ Q!
    i was completely nervous and fearful, had butterflies in my stomach from anxiety! and let’s not forget that i hadn’t touched my guitar in so long that my calloused fingers have turned soft and supple! but after standing in front of them, i realized: no greater group to lead than children… they were complete putty in my hand and adored everything i did!  😉
    after leading sunday in and sunday out for almost a decade and a half (yikes!) it was a mix mash of emotions and thoughts not having to lead worship. for starts, it’s SUPER nice to sleep in on Sunday or get away for the weekend w/ my lovely wife!
    but at the same time there’s the tugging on my heart from the Holy Spirit. i know that my heart and my life belongs to the Lord and that i desire to do more than just come and go every Sunday… a yearning to serve Him and the church.
    the time away from ministry has caused me to come back with more questions and uncertainty than i had when i left, but i’m looking forward to walking forward in faith and seeking answers and deepening a faith that can be firmly rooted in Christ.

    thanks to the kids @ Q who taught me how to enjoy worship again… can’t wait to worship w/ them again!  😀

    worship set:

    • God’s love [key of G] by ???
    • Lord, i lift Your name on high [key of G] by rick founds
    • i could sing of Your love forever [key of E] by martin smith

      I have to admit, I did a little happy dance when I saw your name on the upcoming worship schedule. Good to see you working back in, and walking with the Lord through the process. 🙂

    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.

          but sungha jung tall is 177cm!…tall right?…:-)
