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

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.
In the Night: This song traces the thread of God’s presence within struggle throughout the biblical narrative, and invites us to step into the lineage of hope-in-despair.
Deliver Me: This song offers us language to carry through Lent as we turn toward the Living God.
For Those Tears I Died: We sang this song to accompany a time of prayer and lament for the mosque shootings in New Zealand.
Acetone: This song is about God cutting through the decorative ways we wear our religious convictions, revealing to us the tombs we disguise.
Be Thou My Vision: This song will accompany us through Lent, reminding us to turn to God for our vision, wisdom, and security.
