Speaker: Mike Howerton | Sermon Title: Glorious Mess
Song Set: Cannons | Furious | Blessed Assurance | Never Let Go | 10,000 Reasons (Bless The Lord) | Take It All
This week, we’ll be hearing from Mike Howerton, lead pastor at Overlake Church. His sermon is entitled “Glorious Mess,” and he’ll be drawing from the book of Jonah for his theme. Jonah was called of God, whether Jonah liked it or not. When Jonah tried to get away, God went to extremes to bring him back (a whale!?!). I was struck by two excerpts from our song set that illustrate well the story of Jonah and his relationship with God.
Song: Furious | “Nothing can tear us from the grip of His mighty love.”
Song: Never Let Go | “You never let go, You never let go, You never let go” (a truth worth repeating)
Can’t wait to worship with you all. See you Sunday.
If you aren’t familiar with the Welcome Wagon, Reverend Thomas Vito Aiuto and his wife Monique comprise the Brooklyn-based gospel duo. Vito is the pastor of Resurrection Presbyterian Church in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NY. Their hymns are inspiritingly simple and harken to an americana that sometimes seems long forgotten. Both of their LP’s can be found on our “Albums We Dig” page, but go pick up a copy of their new record Precious Remedies Against Satan’s Devices today! You can also read an interview with Vito here. If you’re interested in downloading any of the lead sheets for the new album, our friends from Cardiphonia have some great resources for the album here. Enjoy!
must watch, enjoy.
This week, we will be playing “Only You Can Satisfy” by Caleb Clements. I was really taken by this song when I first heard it at ROCKHARBOR in Orange County, CA. Caleb was leading worship, and the song had a depth of simplicity that really spoke to me. To satisfy is an interesting thing. Nowadays, we often are less concerned with being satisfied and more concerned with being comfortable or full or happy. As we sing this song in worship this weekend, I pray that we release the things that we believe will make us happy, full, or comfortable to God who is the only one who can satisfy.

See you Sunday!
So last night we had an all church Christmas Carol hymn sing in the sanctuary. Quite frankly it was amazing. The whole body of the church was represented and we just sang together in worship. It was simple, fun, and felt like a family sitting together with the Holy Spirit gently resting on us all. If you missed it, there is always next year.
