Metro Gnome Chonicles 9.13.09

Flag and ConstitutionIt has been a greatly eventful weekend at home and at church.  Welcome!  I’m glad you found me here.  I’m thankful that you have taken the time to stop by.  I hope you come back often and leave me comments.

The weekend started with the event coverage of the 9/12 project on FoxNews. We are beginning to see just how patriotic our fellow Americans are with the TEA Party on the The Mall at the capital in Washington D.C.  There were other TEA Parties in Fort Worth, TX and in Quincy, Ill. as well.  What an amazing thing the gift of freedom is from God.  We respond with conviction and heart in times of trouble and let our voices be heard because those freedoms are placed in danger’s way.  It happened 8 years ago at 9/11 and it feels like it is happening again in our great country.

In light of the current events, the church has been called to awaken.  Do you hear that?  WAKE UP!  No more compromise.  No more playing the game of appearing like Christians but living like hell after church is over.  It’s time to stand up and let the evidence of our Christianity be collected against us by our enemies, if they dare to do so.  What do we have to lose?  Our lives? If things don’t change we won’t have one anyway.  The paradigm is changing.  So stand up and be counted for the Glory of God!

Brother Barry preached a great sermon today. It will be up on http://www.etpalestine.com Monday morning.  It’s called “Church Alive”.  I continue to post these sermons because I’m starting to see that the messages that are coming out of your churches are becoming more and more similar. (Like our setlists!)  It’s equally as cool to see God moving His churches in the same direction.  Is it not?

Speaking of the setlist:

Walk – In  Let the Praises Ring – Lincoln Brewster

It’s been a long time since we have brought this one out to the main service.  It felt great though and the praises did ring out loud today.

Lifesong – Casting Crowns

Mighty to Save – Morgan (We did Smitty’s version)

Prayer and Offertory

Who Am I? – Casting Crowns

Only You – David Crowder* Band

Message: Dr. Barry Roberts “Church Alive”

Altar:  Word of God Speak – MercyMe

Closing: Chorus to Word of God Speak

What was your weekend like?  How did you remember 9/11?  What is going on in your church?  You check other churches setlists and sermons out at http://www.fredmckinnon.com/myblog/2009/09/13/sunday-setlists-60/

Thanks again for stopping by and don’t forget to leave a comment.  It doesn’t matter if it’s about the set list or about 9/11.  I’ll read what you have to say.

Keep the Son in your eyes,

BRAD

  1. Hey Brad,
    Awesome … proud of your church for going there, where so many are unwilling to go.

    Hey, can you edit your link so that it goes to the actual “Sunday Setlists” post on the blog, instead of my blog’s homepage – that way the link will always be tied to the correct Setlist post …

    Thanks!
    Fred

    • Absolutely! It’s done. Thanks Fred for doing this week after week.

  2. Wow, been so long since I heard ‘Who Am I?’ it’s a fabulous song though….the lyrics so true and kinda hit you straight into the heart…

    Thanks for sharing your setlist

  3. Some outstanding song choices.

    Who Am I? is one of my favorites and I use it frequently at Pine Lodge Corrections Center for Women.

    Word of God Speak is one we have been doing again; I like it right before the sermon.

  4. This looks very exciting! Great weekend by the looks of it!
