This past Sunday was the fifteenth Sunday after Pentecost. Our songs were gathered with this in mind. Below, you’ll find the list of the songs and artists. Clicking the song titles will take you to the lyrics. Below the songs, you can find a brief example of one way you might think of these songs. If you want to talk about any of these, feel free to comment at the bottom of this page or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Wayward Ones by The Gladsome Light
Shadow by Jameson McGregor
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.
Crown Him With Many Crowns: We sang this song to begin our time by singing about Jesus as Lord of everything.
Wayward Ones: This is our communion hymn, and it contemplates Christ's self-giving love that is displayed and remembered in the eucharist.
Come Thou Fount: This song offered us language to anchor our faith in who God will be for us in who God has been for us up until this point.
Shadow: This song is about the tension between what we claim to believe and the beliefs revealed in our action.
Be Thou My Vision: This song is a petition for God to reframe our sense of vision, wisdom, security, and hope; to give us an overall different lens through which to view the world and our place in it.
Doxology: We close our time together each week with this proclamation that God is worthy of praise from every inch of the cosmos.
