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.
Bonfire: This song is about the contrast between God and humanity and the contrast between the already and the not yet of the Kingdom. We sang this song to acknowledge what God has done and to look ahead to the re-Creation of all things.
Fall Afresh: We sang this song to petition the Spirit of God to reawaken us to the presence of God among us and to draw us into what God is doing in our world.
Pulse: This song is about the Breath of Life in all of creation, and petitions the Spirit to reawaken our hearts to our interconnectivity to all creatures, that we might be moved toward loving as God does.
Waking Life: This song is about the Spirit crashing into the stories we tell ourselves about the world and our place in it, offering us a different way to live and move and have our being.
Hope: We sang this song to look over our shoulder at last week's songs. This is what we said about Hope then: This song looks at the mini-Resurrections that God has spread across creation in order to look ahead to the re-Creation of all things.
Doxology: We close our time together each week with this proclamation that God is worthy of praise from every inch of the cosmos.
