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.
Hope (There Will Come A Light): This song proclaims the coming of a fundamental shift to the world where the newborn cries of Light beat back the darkness that plagues our existence.
Peace (Change Everything): This song is plea for God to bring peace into the chaos of our world, from the systems within which we operate, to the cells that compose our bodies.
There: We sang this song to confess the transcendence of God, and to anchor ourselves to the peace of God in the midst of chaos.
Like It Was Then: This song grasps for some sort of reassurance that Advent hope is merited in our time.
O Come, O Come Emmanuel: We sang this song to look over our shoulder at last week’s songs. This is what we said about O Come, O Come Emmanuel then: We sang this song to begin Lent with a plea for God to enter as a Light into our dark world.
Doxology: We close our time together each week with this proclamation that God is worthy of praise from every inch of the cosmos.
