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.
Your Love Is Strong: We sang this song to begin our time by proclaiming God as our Father whose love is the strength that binds us together in life.
Death In His Grave: This song allows us to rehearse the story of Jesus' death and resurrection, the embodied expression of God's love for us.
Rise Up: We sang this song as a way of grasp for words to ask God to come to the defense of the families and children who are being separated by our government at the border.
Inbreaking: This song is a plea for God to enter into the brokenness of our time and place and set about redeeming it.
Be Thou My Vision: We sang this song to look over our shoulder at last week's songs. Here's what we said about Be Thou My Vision then: This song is a plea for God to be our vision, wisdom, security, and hope in the whole of our lives.
Doxology: We close our time together each week with this proclamation that God is worthy of praise from every inch of the cosmos.
