Hello, hello? Breaker, breaker… this is Daniel John….come back? Is anybody out there?
Quick update before we get to the music: I feel like it’s been a while since we’ve chatted. Most of you know this already, but for anyone looking in and wondering what I’m talking about, our family recently completed our move to Omaha, Nebraska back in August. It has taken us a while to find our groove, but we’re finding our way and this has been a really great season for our family. It hasn’t been without its bumps and challenges, but we are doing well and sometime soon I’ll give you the full update on our new life here.
Below is our setlist for the week. We had a different choir with us each service, and on the last night had our youth band/orchestra play with us which made for an incredible time. Above is the video [made by one of our college students, James Powell] we used to open and close out this year’s missions conference. And below I have included all the main service setlists along with links to iTunes previews:
As usual, this Sunday Setlist is a part of the worship confessional/carnival hosted at the Worship Community.
We had a wildly wintery day yesterday – so much so that half of our people did not make it for the second service. At first as we looked out over the crowd it appeared awkwardly small, but it ended up having a wonderfully intimate feel. We did not run the music as hot (due to the size of the congregation) and you could hear everyone singing just a little louder to make up the difference.
Also, I do not usually do such Hillsong driven sets, but this mix of songs just seemed to work for us yesterday. It was so much fun to lead this with the band/team and the presence of God was very real as we worshipped with these songs:
1. (Dm) Your Love Is Beautiful – a little old-school Hillsong complete with guitar & drum solos. also added in a cool gospel riff to lead into the second song.
2. (D) For Your Name – newer Hillsong song. i use a delay on the keys to give a very U2-ish sound.
3. (D) Jesus, Name Above All Names – a new arrangement of a classic song. our church really responds well to this one.
4. (E) I Adore – more old-school (ala 2001) but still great.
5. (A) Majesty/My Soul Sings – a mix of some Martin Smith songs to finish off the set!
Well, it’s been long while since I last posted a setlist, but my good friend Harold (from onevoiceworship.org) encouraged me to resume the setlist fun. So here we are again. I trust that you have all been well. We’ve been good too and thanks for asking. 🙂
We had a good morning set with a smaller, yet very tight team (drums, bass, keys, & 3 singers). This was our setlist today:

Welcome to the Sunday Setlist rundown. I’ll keep this short today (read: taking a nap) as we are starting some special meetings that start today and run until Wednesday evening. It was a good service this morning and we had a rather large crowd, with many visitors in town because of a wedding (for a lovely couple from our church) we held yesterday.
Worship went well, just not as great as I had hoped for. Don’t ask me what would have been great because I don’t have any actual criteria in place to measure this. It was just that feeling that things could have been a little more energetic, more engaged, more dynamic. But mostly, I think people were a little disengaged because we had a guest speaker and they were “curious” what he would be like. The speaker and I talked after service and he agreed that the people were a little reserved today. Regardless of all that, our band did a wonderful job, we enjoyed worshiping together, and here is the set for the day:

All I am going to say is that the technology I live with is now “officially” smarter than I am. We literally awoke (VERY REFRESHED) to the fact that everything we had set back one hour had also automatically set itself back one hour too. So yes, I fell back 2 hours instead of 1 which then caused our band to miss it’s rehearsal time. But even with my technological craziness, we were able to throw a quick rehearsal together in a back room, and worship was still wonderful because we were with God.
Below are our setlists for the day w/ links to iTunes:
