Bose Sound System

This post, below, is continuing to generate some great feedback, and we need more. Interest is high, and I’ve chatted with Bose about the need in contemporary church band settings to try this puppy out.

Anyone else interested in this new Bose sound system, or has used it and can open our eyes – is it really too good to be true?

Small, portable, great sound with a new paradigm for live music?

They’ll send a rep to your area to try it (Test Driving A Bose), and Musician’s Friend sells them, too.

Bose has done their homework, but it’s such a new paradigm. Live band pics are here. Here are their FAQs, and their trouble-shooting page is worth looking through to see what others are dealing with.

Original Post:

“I admit, I’m tired of hauling and setting up gear as a musician. Twenty years ago, I might not have said this. Now, even for smaller events that need some amplification, you take whatever is available, and often that is a larger system that you just turn down low.

We all want quality, full-range sound, flexibility and multiple channels to work with.

I’ve been hearing about the Bose Sound System. The setting for us would be a cafe’, 25 x 25 room that would use it for bands (classic drums, bass, electric, vocals, percussion), and acoustic sets.

I’d love some feedback on it.”


Sheltering Mercy: Prayers Inspired by the Psalms

Sheltering Mercy, along with its companion volume, Endless Grace, helps us rediscover the rich treasures of the Psalms—through free-verse prayer renderings of their poems and hymns—as a guide to personal devotion and meditation.

The church has always used the Psalms as part of its prayer life, and they have inspired countless other prayers. This book contains 75 prayers drawn from Psalms 1-75, providing lyrical sketches of what authors Ryan Smith and Dan Wilt have seen, heard, and felt while sojourning in the Psalms. Each prayer is a response to the Psalms written in harmony with Scripture. These prayers help us quiet our hearts before God and welcome us into a safe place amid the storms of life.

This artful, poetic, and classic devotional book features compelling custom illustrations and foil-stamped hardcover binding, offering a fresh way to reflect on and pray the Psalms.
