On The Road Again: Orlando, FL

I played at Orangewood Presbyterian this past Sunday, leading worship in their morning service and playing an acoustic concert that evening at The Grove. I heard their worship pastor, Reggie Kidd, speak at the Sacrifice of Praise Conference several months ago, and was thrilled to visit his church and get to know him a little. He has a book about worship coming out this fall called With One Voice: Discovering Christ’s Song in Our Worship. You can read his blog here and pre-order the book here.

In case anyone’s interested, here are the day’s setlists:

Morning Worship:
Come Ye Sinners
Jesus, What A Friend For Sinners
Jesus I Come
Be Thou My Vision
All I Owe
O Love That Will Not Let Me Go

Evening Concert:
Come Ye Sinners
And Can It Be
Jesus Everlasting King
His Love Can Never Fail
O Come And Mourn With Me Awhile
Thou Lovely Source Of True Delight
All I Owe
Let Us Love And Sing And Wonder
What Wondrous Love Is This
Free Grace
My Lord I Did Not Choose You
-Q&A Time-
Singing together:
‘Tis So Sweet To Trust In Jesus
On Jordan’s Stormy Banks
Nothing But The Blood

“His Love Can Never Fail” is a new one that will be on both Indelible Grace IV and my solo album (God willing). Derek Webb is singing the version on IG4. I love this song.

“My Lord I Did Not Choose You” is a Josiah Conder hymn I wrote music for that will also be on my solo album. I hope to begin recording early next year.

I’m enjoying the Q&A time that I have during these solo concerts (unless it’s a large venue, where it’s too awkward to do one). It’s good to actually interact with folks instead of just singing and yapping. One of the questions at The Grove was about my musical tastes, where I mentioned Pedro The Lion, one of my favorite bands. This led to a brief discussion with some girls after the concert about whether or not it’s important to label yourself a Christian (David Bazan, lead singer of Pedro, confesses the Apostles’ and Nicene creeds, but stopped calling himself a Christian several years ago). Perhaps I’ll elaborate in a future blog entry. Or perhaps the topic will disappear and end up in the same place where “Conferences, Pt. 2” landed. I also got into a lengthy and really fun conversation with a socialist. (Note: I’m not a socialist. They are fun to talk to though. At least this one was. Thanks Gabe.)

I leave for North Carolina this Friday to play three more solo concerts. If you’re in the area, I hope to see you there!
