Your Love Is Strong by Jon Foreman
Wandering by Jameson McGregor
In the Night by Andrew Peterson
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.
Your Love Is Strong: We sang this song to begin our gathering by proclaiming the self-giving love of God.
Wandering: This song gave us language to celebrate God's faithfulness to us despite our inconsistent faithfulness to God.
O Love That Will Not Let Me Go: We sang this song to look over our shoulder at last week's songs. This is what we said about O Love That Will Not Let Me Go then: Lent can be a daunting season as we come to terms with our sin. We sang this song to remind ourselves of the enduring love of God.
In the Night: This song carries us through Lent all the way to Easter. It is a record of God’s showing up in the midst of despair throughout the biblical narrative.
Be Thou My Vision: Throughout the Lenten season, we will close our liturgies with these words to reaffirm our desire to seek our vision, wisdom, and security in God alone.
