at grace on saturday i selected music for the road or journey. one of my favourites were two versions of wayfaring stranger - one on the triptych compliation by the anita kerr quartet and the other a mix by burial of jamie woon's wayfaring stranger. if you've not come across burial they are part of the dub step movement - hard to describe - slowed down drum and bass heavy on the bass and tripped out i guess.
another track that i played was from this year's favourite chillout compilation of mine - the chillout lounge - which has a stunning selection of tracks ( i actually played a few tracks from that cd). the track is just wanna be loved by roebeck. finding instrumental tracks to use in worship is easy - it's always a bit harder to find tracks with a suitable vocal so i am adding these as worship trick 12 [series 3]
i have updated my listening to selection in the sidebar.
a few of the other travelling tunes i played were:
far i have come by arsenal
traveller by talvin singh
journey by nitin sawhney
roads by portishead
take the lord along with you by sister gertrude
nightwalker by trentmoller
journey inwards by ltj bukem
ramblin man by lemon jelly
[the outline for grace is in the grace archive including a copy of the wonderful grace map, prayers used and an autumn video loop...]
I love Burial. Have you heard the album?

interesting, i had set for our youth ministry the theme for 07/08 The Journey Begins. we started off last night with the sub-theme of Roads. glad i stumbled upon this blog post and the Grace outline. i morphed some of my ideas then with some of the Grace ideas... led to a good kickoff. i used video clips from Portishead - Live Roseland NYC (Roads & the Road Trip mix by DJ Andy Smith), David Lynch's movie Straight Story, Identity Bites from Proost and closed with the music video Burn My Shadow by UNLKE. we challenged the teens to 'turn over a new leaf' so-to-speak; setting aside the things that distract us, and travel down the road using the map of God's plan for their lives. we set goals and challenges for the year.
thanks for the ideas.
