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.
Heart Won’t Stop: This song finds its place in late ordinary time as a proclamation of God’s enduring love for us which breaks past the defenses we construct and is unfazed by the depths we might descend in the mire of life.
Fall Afresh: We sang this song to maintain an awareness of our dependence on the Spirit of God to form us in the way of Christ, inviting the Spirit to continue to make all things new in us.
There: This song offered us language to praise the One who is constant throughout all measure of uncertainty, and to anchor ourselves to the Eternal One.
Anthem: We sang this song to maintain a grip on hope in the midst of brokenness.
Pulse: We sang this song to look over our shoulder at last week’s songs. This is what we said about Hope then: 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.
Doxology: We close our time together each week with this proclamation that God is worthy of praise from every inch of the cosmos.
