    Sounds great, Jan - isn't it like a domino effect - the more people that start singing, the more people will sing. I'm also convinced that it's tied to overall house mix and sound. Is it too late for you to take that picture?

    I am so thrilled that people were livelier in their worship today at your church. It does make it so much easier when they are choosing to participate. See, you are called.
    Please sneak back and take a picture. I love pictures or other peoples stage designs!
    And post it on creative fuZion this Thursdays at designing for Philstines.
    Still praying for you.


    Glad you had a lively crowd. Ours were really quiet and a tough bunch but I think it's often like that after the holidays. We had two weeks where we had no JBay Java and I think everyone is just starting to get back to it.

    Thanks for posting. I'm looking at a more contemplative service next week and I'm going to use some of your ideas for a bit of inspiration.

    Awesome setlist! Sunday night we also did Friend of God. Great song!


    jan, glad the set worked well. regarding the series 'boundaries', have you been to mad church disease before? it's a series of posts initiated by the author of the book by that name (coming out next month i think). lots there about boundaries. some people need to create boundaries to protect themselves, others need to learn about healthy boundaries so they don't overstep them!

    I love "Still" it's been a long time since we've done that one one.
    We had a much better response from the congregation during worship this week also.

    I like the song selection...sounds like a great day.

    David Goodwin

    It's all be said before I got here Jan, and passionate worship is indeed contagious! Sounds like a great week for you guys!

    Russell Martin

    Sounds like a great Sunday. Where can I hear this song of yours "Invitation"? How did it go with your congregation? I am glad when I see worship leaders writing songs for their congregation to sing.

    Jan Owen

    Hi Russell, you can hear the song here:

    It includes a link to the story....

    Thanks for asking. :)
