The following marks the 157th and final post in my “Sunday Setlist” series, outlining the music that I have used for Christian worship services. I continue to direct music at The Table, a modern Anglican service of St. George’s Episcopal Church in Nashville, but will no longer be posting my song selections here due to a changing focus of this site and the best use of my time for St. George’s.

I heard the voice of Jesus Christ. Satan, your kingdom must come down!

Here’s another great bedtime autobiography: Bossypants by Tina Fey. Light, easy, and laugh-out-loud funny, Fey describes her nerdy growing up years to being one of the smartest talents in comedy. I enjoyed reading about her experiences as a kid at drama camp, studying improv at Chicago’s famous Second Citywriting for Saturday Night Live, and producing her comedic satire 30 Rock. Underlying every tale is her experience as a woman in the man’s world of television – and especially, comedy. Witty and well-written, this was a delight.

I read the Kindle version myself, which has the advantage of not having to look at the freaky cover whenever I picked it up. But, there are some pictures, doodles, and quirky footnotes that the Kindle makes difficult to read. The award-winning audiobook can also be found on

My main takeaway: Another reason why I need to study improv at some point in my acting career.
