Standalone message today at Journey Church by none other than our own Paul Crouthamel.  What a great dude!  So passionate about community within the body–about seeing people plug into small groups–seeing people do life together–seeing believers hold each other accountable in their walks with Christ.  Great message from Acts 2 about what real biblical community looks like.

Big Takeaway:

“Isolation brings Desolation”

We were never meant to live this Christian life alone.  We must be in community.  You don’t have what it takes on your own.  You don’t have what it takes to live it alone.


1. How Can I Keep From Singing? (Tomlin)

2. A Mighty Fortress (Nockels)

3. This is Our God/I Exalt Thee (Hillsong/Pete Sanchez)

On another note (only you guitar players out there will care) Tried out a new tuning today.  Open E.   Tuning: E-B-E-F#-B-E

Worked out well for “This is Our God”. Not as deep and droning as I prefer with open D or C, obviously. Nevertheless, I did like most of the voicings I got out of the chords.  I = 0-0-0-2-0-0  ii = 2-2-0-3-0-0 iii = 4-4-0-2-0-0  IV = 5-5-0-3-0-0  V = 7-7-0-5-0-0  vi = 9-9-0-7-0-0

Give it a shot and let me know what you think.
