We had a fantastic message on Christian unity by Mark Strauss of Bethel Seminary, San Diego. I opened the service with a dead panned thought about taxes. When the church seemed to check out, I said, “You are just mad at me for mentioning a new tax year begins this week.” At least there was a courtesy laugh to break the ice.
Our worship set was on “praise” since I wanted to end the year with a band, fight the post-Christmas blues and thought any reason to do Lincoln Brewster’s “Everybody Praise the Lord” is a good one. Our band, thanks to Mike and crew, really sizzles on that tune and boy the message is simple but profound: we worship God for who He is and what He has done.
Here is the music from Sunday with links to iTunes:
- Let The Praises Ring – Lincoln Brewster
- A Thousand Hallelujahs – Mark Roach
- Everybody Praise the Lord – Lincoln Brewster
- Hosanna – Paul Baloche
- Amazing Grace (My Chains are gone) – Chris Tomlin
