Sunday wrap-up

Posted: September 10, 2007 in Church, Music

Sunday was a great day.  We kicked off our PureSex series at Crosspoint.  Here’s the setlist:

  • 1. Salvation Is Here – Kristian Stanfill
  • 2. Made to Worship – Chris Tomlin
  • 3. Everything Glorious – David Crowder
  • 4. “I Got a Woman” (arr. by John Mayer)
  • 5. Center – Charlie Hall


After a countdown video, I asked people to stand and we sang the worship set.  “Made to Worship” is a new song for us, so we took some time singing through the chorus before we sang the whole song.  Dave came up at the end of “Everything Glorious,” welcomed and seated the crowd.

Then we showed a five-minute humorous video drama made by a couple on our drama team, immediately followed by “I Got a Woman” (the John Mayer version).  I intro’d the song reading (from memory) Proverbs 31:10:  “A good woman is hard to find; she is more precious than diamonds.”  (from the Message…other versions say wife instead of woman and rubies instead of diamonds…but you get the point).

Only awkward moment:  The bumper video which was to buy Dave some time to get onstage while we got off was inexplicably not in the video flow (my fault), so we had this awkward silence as the band left the stage and Dave walked up.  He made it funny though…

The message was probably one of the best I’ve ever heard Dave preach.  Humorous, challenging, and intensely biblical.  Solid message about how sex – ACCORDING TO GOD’S PLAN IN MARRIAGE – was created by God and designed to be enjoyed in marriage.  When we’re out of God’s plan, it leads to shame, pain, and possibly even destruction.  The point of the whole thing was that having a Christ-centered marriage can lead to great sex with your spouse.

(On a side note:  Why are we talking about sex at Crosspoint?  Read Dave’s post here, or read my post here.)

We concluded the service singing “Center.”  As we started playing, it Dave gave people an opportunity to respond and make Christ the center of their lives.

All in all it was a fun morning.  Jack ripped out a great guitar solo in “I Got a Woman,” while Brent and J-mo carried the rhythm of the song, and I hope I sang it convincingly.  Though, I almost changed a line at one point in the song to say, “I got a woman, running the sound…”   Which I do.  Heh.
