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.
All Creatures of Our God and King: This song invites us to join our voices with the rest of creation in celebrating the Creator and Sustainer of all that is.
Wayward Ones: This is our communion hymn, and it contemplates Christ's self-giving love that is displayed and remembered in the eucharist.
Rise Up: This song is a petition for God to come to the aid and defense of people who are trampled by our systems of power.
Family Band: This song is a plea for God to draw our withered selves into God’s family.
Wideness: We sang this song to continue to remind ourselves on our Epiphany journey that our most grandiose views of God’s mercy and love are in fact minimizations.
Doxology: We close our time together each week with this proclamation that God is worthy of praise from every inch of the cosmos.
