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.
Wandering: We sang this song to celebrate God's faithfulness to us in the midst of our inevitable falling short of being the presence of Christ in our time and place during Ordinary Time.
There's A Wideness In God's Mercy: This song proclaims that God's mercy is beyond even our most generous definitions of mercy, and offers us a new way to conceive of the way God views us, and challenges us to rethink the way we think of other people.
Be Thou My Vision: This song is a plea for God to be our vision, wisdom, security, and hope in the whole of our lives.
Anthem: This song proclaims that Light finds its way into brokenness, and offers us hope to hold onto in the midst of darkness.
O Love That Will Not Let Me Go: We sang this song to celebrate and cling to the transforming love of God.
Doxology: We close our time together each week with this proclamation that God is worthy of praise from every inch of the cosmos.
