Sunday – 5.8.11

At Visio Dei the style of music that we generally play would generally be described as Rock n’ Roll.

I make this statement proudly 😉

On your average Sunday, we will have a drummer, a bass player, an acoustic guitar player, one or two electric guitar players, maybe a keyboard player, maybe a cello or violin, maybe both, and at least 2 or 3 people singing. We can get really big and really loud. I love it.

But sometimes it’s really good to scale things way down. This past Sunday we did just that.

I was fortunate enough to have the very talented, ever versatile percussion expert Mike McKee help me out with a few songs at our Sunday morning gathering. So for the whole morning all we had was an acoustic guitar, some percussion and two people singing….

….which brings me to why I loved the morning so much: there clearly was not just two people singing. It quickly became obvious that everyone in the room was singing. And there was so little stage volume it was really easy to hear it.

The spirit prompted me to remind everyone that Ephesians and Colossians tell us to sing to each other and encourage one another in song. Mornings like this are a reminder that hearing other people sing truths about God is indeed incredibly encouraging.

If you are a regular Visio Dei-er I hope you were encouraged too 🙂

Band for the morning was:
Katie Pritchett – vox
Patrick Downing – acoustic guitar + vox
Mike McKee – drums and percussion

Setlist for the morning was:
All Because of Jesus – Fee
Sweetly Broken – Riddle
Jesus Paid it All – Stanfill version
