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.
How Great Thou Art: We sang this song to begin our time together by acknowledging the glory of God in creation, what God has done in Christ, and the ongoing redemption of all creation.
All Creatures of Our God and King: We sang this song to look over our shoulder at last week's songs. This is what we said about All Creatures of Our God and King then: We sang this song to join our voices with the whole of creation acknowledging the grandeur of what God has made.
Amazing Grace: This song offers us language to express the work of God's grace in our lives, and challenges us to be present to the ongoing work of God in who we are becoming.
Inbreaking: This song is a plea for God to break into the chaos of our lives and raise up the Kingdom in our midst.
Wayward Ones: This song invites us to remember the self-giving love of Christ as we participate in communion.
Doxology: We close our time together each week with this proclamation that God is worthy of praise from every inch of the cosmos.
