Music Spotlight Tuesday: The Commissioned Reunion Part 2 (Far-fetched Wishes)

Commissioned is my all-time favorite singing group. I love Take 6, The Winans, and 4Him, but NO group compares to the harmonies, relevance, and Scriptural soundness of Commissioned.

Commissioned's last album to date was the Commissioned Reunion (2002). It was an incredible recording that gave superb justice to their consistent delivery of power-packed and anointed songs beginning in the 1980's.

However, as in any "Best Of" list, inevitably good ones get left out. That is why I created a tracklist of some of my favorite Commissioned songs that are just as good as those on the real Commissioned Reunion, but did not make the cut.


IF, IF, IF Commissioned was to pull together for a Commissioned Reunion Part 2, I believe the song list would look something like this...

  1. He Set Me Free
  2. Work On Me
  3. Stand
  4. We Are Overcomers
  5. The Way You Love Me
  6. Don't Worry
  7. I'm Learning
  8. Back to My First Love
  9. At the Point of Your Need
  10. If God is For Us
  11. Only What You Do For Christ Will Last
  12. Let's Not Crucify Him Again
  13. Be an Example
  14. Second Chance
  15. You Can Always Come Home
  1. One Step After Another
  2. Hide the Word
  3. Dare to Believe
  4. Crucified with Christ
  5. Jesus Cares
  6. Heart of Mine
  7. Here I Am (More Than a Conqueror)
  8. It Was You
  9. Waiting to Hear from You
  10. No More Lonliness
  11. More Than You'll Ever Know
  12. Learn to Pray
  13. Glorious Praise
  14. I Will Never Leave You
  15. I'm Gonna Let My Love Flow

... Hey, you never know.

The Synth Sounds

I am excited to share that my first jazz project is nearing completion. (Also why this is my first post this month).

Other than piano, you can definitely expect to hear sounds of 1980's and 1990's-era synthesizers filtered throughout the upcoming album.

I admire the newer sounds we have today, but none of them quite replicate the original, synth-led sounds of 80's and 90's music.

In my opinion, 80's and 90's sounds present the perfect crossover of analog and digital mixes that were limitless in use and expression.

It is no wonder that modern synthesizers today still draw inspiration from 80's and 90's technology. It was simply some of the most innovative audio machinery ever created.

No shame here. Expect 80's and 90's vibes to come your way in my upcoming project.

Stay Tuned!!!

CFC Youth Day

CFC Youth Day was nothing short of remarkable.

Children, teenagers, young adults (my generation) sang, danced, praised, and worshiped God with passion, love, joy, energy, and sincerity.

We led, both, the 8:00 AM and 10:00 AM services and the LORD ministered through us in His own powerful way.

I am very grateful to have preached at the 10:00 AM service. (Came from 2 Timothy 1:7).

Something amazing happens when we move ourselves out of the way and allow the LORD to communicate His Word through us. He does for us what we cannot do for ourselves. And when you summarize the meaning He brings to life, you realize that all the of the glory belongs to Him.

The reality of God's presence gives life, and everything we involve ourselves in, brand new meaning.

God's awesomeness was displayed in a monumental way today. A flame was kindled in our youth and the church as a whole.

Today was special.

Big thanks to everyone who helped make today such a great success, you know who you are!


The Audacity of Hope

Last week I completed The Audacity of Hope by President Barack Obama in 2006.

In The Audacity of Hope, Mr. Obama shares some of his experiences as a citizen and politician while also laying out policy-driven solutions to improve the lives of Americans.

Granted The Audacity of Hope was written before Mr. Obama's first presidential election in 2008, his thorough understanding of the Nation's issues are impressive and difficult to overlook.

Mr. Obama, in an academic prose, but down-to-earth tonality, hits on national issues relative to our political system, constitutional interpretation, economics, military policy, education, and community development.

I found The Audacity of Hope to be one of the better books I have ever read on American politics and public affairs. Regardless of your politics, this is a good read with the capabilities to expand anyone's understanding of politics and government.

In fact, much of the information contained in The Audacity of Hope is still rele…
