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.
Just A Closer Walk With Thee: We sang this song to express our desire to be formed more fully in the way of Christ.
There: This song celebrates God as an anchor beyond every pain we encounter.
Where God Has Always Been: We sang this song to acknowledge and celebrate God’s solidarity with those with their backs against the wall, and to look ahead to the coming of the Kingdom in fullness.
Heart With No Companion: This song is about the hope of Christ that reaches across pain and time, drawing us into a future of wholeness.
Mystery: This song invites us to consider the death, resurrection, and enduring presence of Jesus as being transformative to the way we navigate our ordinary lives.
Doxology: We close our time together each week with this proclamation that God is worthy of praise from every inch of the cosmos.
