Sunday Setlists: 10/04/09

This Blog takes part in Sunday Setlists at FredMcKinnon.com.  Come check out the fun and see how God is moving in His people around the world and how other churches have been worshipping this week.

Recap: So, this week we began a new four week series called “I Want to Be One of Them.”  We’re looking at four saints that are or have faithfully lived their lives for Christ and made an impact on people around them. 

I really enjoyed the worship time at FCHolden this week.  We were challenged to live a life of humility before God and reminded that we can’t do anything unless we are relying on God.

Opening song: “God You Are My God” – Delirious?

Announcements:

We announced our Servolution dates, which is going to be an incredible week again this year. 

Second Set:

“Everybody Prainse the Lord” – Lincoln Brewster

This was one of the highlights of the morning, because Laurie Morrison, one of the vocalists on our team, and I kind of made it into a battle.  During practice last week, we worked on splitting it into a duet of sorts.  It was kind of like a musical “testimony poker.” It was a blast.

“Your Grace is Enough” – Matt Maher

Closer: “All We Need is You” – Charlie Hall

Peka-Chu’s, Chupacabra’s and Pecha Kucha Night Worcester

The question may be rolling around your head with that title, “Has Al finally lost whatever was left of his mind?”

And my reply is “YES!”

But it shouldn’t be the title that gave that away.

Sunday night, September 14th I attended and volunteered at Pecha Kucha Worcester Night 2.   First of all Michelle, Cindy and Scott did another amazing job.  Their hard work certainly showed!

“Pecha Ku-Waaa??”

I know it’s a strange looking, and even stranger sounding name, but trust me it is all too cool!

It’s pronounced Peh Chah Kuh Chah, or at least that’s what I heard people calling it. 

Whatever you call it, Pecha Kucha Night has become something my wife and I are amped about.  We are so excited to see how this event impacts our community.  We attended the Pecha Kucha Worcetser 1st night and we were so pumped by what we saw, heard and experienced that we were determinined that we would be at the next one and the one after that, and…Well, you get the idea.  Basically, it rocks!

Pecha Kucha is the community driven offspring of Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham.  It started in 2003 and created “as a place for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public.”  Check link for a descriptionand history of Pecha Kucha.

Last night’s showing was amazing.  There were photographers, painters, and type setters (I had no idea what that was until last night).

The highlight of the night to me was the Stu “Dr. Gonzo” Etsy’s presentation on community. It was perfectly fitting for that night.  I had a blast, I laughed, I was challenged, and walked away thinking about some things.  I have been asking myself since, “how am I investing, impacting, and changing my community for better?”

Make sure you get off your duff and get down to the next Pecha Kucha night, January 24, 2010.
