We had one combined service at our locations today at Shelter Rock because of our annual picnic. I was in Syosset and had a guitar string break right at the beginning of the set…something that has never happened to me! All I could think about was my options: 1. Move to the piano, 2. Borrow our second acoustic player’s guitar. We were in the middle of the set so there wasn’t a good time to do either. I just decided to put my guitar down and lead instrumentless. Something I hardly ever do. I’m not used to having my hands free so it was nice to be able to clap and lift them up but it was a weird feeling. I kept thinking of the worship leaders I like who do not lead from an instrument and what they do :).
All in all it went well. The team really stepped up and did a great job. Note to self: Have another guitar available.
Here’s the set…
Opening: Nothing But the Blood (Christa Ciotti arrangement off her forthcoming album)
O Taste and See (Brian Johnson)
Hosanna (Brooke Fraser)
None But Jesus (Brooke Fraser)
Offering/Closing: By His Wounds w/Nothing but the Blood
Jimmy Costello did an awesome job with this!!
