I'm trying something new today.
Here's our service list, and following is a video commentary from me about it.
The service today was more hymn heavy than usual, but each song was done with a newer arrangement so I don't think it was too bad. People seem to enjoy the newer arrangements. It will be even better once we have a guitarist in place.
Anyway, here's the list...Orchestral Prelude: Crown Him With Many Crowns (instrumental)
For The Beauty Of The Earth - updated hymn arrangement
Unashamed Love - Ten sheckle shirt
Welcome / Fellowship
Crown Him With Many Crowns - updated hymn arrangement - had rough transition on a key change. Not a huge issue, just a hiccup. Everything went ahead as normal.
Wonderful, Merciful Savior - Dawn Rogers & Eric Wise
Offertory Prayer - Deacon
Choir Special: Faithful & True
Message: Bro. Steve: “Truth For Life: Overcoming Respect Neglect”
(Exodus 20:12)Theme: Honor Parents
Invitation: Just As I Am - Hymn Arrangement
Closing Chorus: Take Up Your Cross (Ray Blotz?)
Even now, as I watch the below video as I type this, I gotta say...I'm not sure if I'll be able to do it again. I previously had no idea I had so many weird facial expressions I make. And wasn't aware until recently that I seem to talk out of the side of my mouth. Very strange. Anyway, let me know what you think. If you're as uncomfortable with it as I am, I won't do it again.
