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.
SMS [Shine]: This song offered us language to cultivate an openness to the hope of Christ.
Wild One: We sang this song to proclaim God's being greater than our greatest ideas about who God is.
There's A Wideness in God's Mercy: This song helped us express the breadth of God's mercy, beyond our greatest hopes.
Eternal Father: This song is about the prodigal love of God for God's creatures.
How Great Thou Art: We sang this song to celebrate what God has done in time and space in the hope of training our minds to notice God's continued presence in the world.
Doxology: We close our time together each week with this proclamation that God is worthy of praise from every inch of the cosmos.
