Below the songs, you can find a brief example of one way you might think of these songs.

All Creatures of Our God and King by David Crowder* Band
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.
Just A Closer Walk With Thee: This song invites us into a key pursuit of ordinary time: turning our attention toward being the presence of Christ in our time and place.
Crown Him With Many Crowns: This song offered us language to speak of Christ as Lord of all, and thus to orient our thoughts about power toward Jesus.
O Love That Will Not Let Me Go: This song offered us words to proclaim that our grasping after God occurs within the context of God's embrace of us.
Wearing Thin: This song is a petition for God to form us into people of zeal for justice and ignite hope in the face of hopelessness.
All Creatures of Our God and King: This song invites us to join our voices with all of creation in acknowledging God as the Creator and Sustainer of all that is. In doing so, we are invited to consider all of creation as our family.
Doxology: We close our time together each week with this proclamation that God is worthy of praise from every inch of the cosmos.
