How They Fit In:
There are many ways to think about the significance of songs and the way they fit together–-this is simply one way you can look at these songs in light of this week’s theme.
Be Thou My Vision: We sang this song to begin our time asking God to transform our vision, wisdom, security, and hope.
Wayward Ones: This is our communion hymn, and it contemplates Christ's self-giving love that is displayed and remembered in the eucharist.
Pulse: This song is a prayer that God would reawaken us to the interconnectivity of creation, and to teach us to love our created neighbors as ourselves.
When The Saints Go Marching In: We sang this song because of the proximity of this Sunday to All Saints day. It invites us to reflect on our location within a long caravan of people following in the way of Christ.
Crown Him With Many Crowns: We sang this song to look over our shoulder at last week’s songs. This is what we said about Crown Him With Many Crowns then: This song invites us to give voice to the reign of Christ above every so-called authority, whose Kingdom is and is to come, and flips the script on our ideas of power and grandeur.
Doxology: We close our time together each week with this proclamation that God is worthy of praise from every inch of the cosmos.
