Tonight's theme was missions - we're getting ready for the big parent's meeting next week. We started off upbeat with Sam's electric work on "Solution" joined by Brady's drumming. We paused for a minute as I introduced "True Love" - a new song for us. The idea of this song is simple - just a retelling of the gospel - but the imagery is great! I love the chorus of this song:
"The earth was shaking in the dark, All creation felt the Father's broken heart,
Tear's were filling heaven's eyes, the day that true love died, the day that true love died.
When blood and water hit the ground, walls we couldn't move came crashing down,
We were free and made alive, the day that true love died, the day that true love died."
Even though it was a new song, people seemed to catch on and participate. From here we made a seamless transition into "None But Jesus" thanks to Trevor's keyboard part. This song is still fairly new for us but people were ready to sing at this point and there was an intense moment of worship during this song. We made another keyboard transition into the familiar "Find a World" and people really sang out on this one.
The band played really tight. God's presence was evident. People responded. Altogether, it was a great night.
