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.
In the Night: This song traces the thread of God’s presence within struggle throughout the biblical narrative, and invites us to step into the lineage of hope-in-despair.
Here Is Our King: We sang this song because honestly what other song would you sing for Palm Sunday while a parade of children danced in waving palm branches?
Just A Closer Walk With Thee: This song gets to one of the primary concerns of Lent: being formed in the way of Christ.
Fall Afresh: We sang this song to invite the Spirit to continue to transform us and to guard our faith from complacency.
Lord, I Need You: This song offered us a prayer to carry us through the end of Lent.
Be Thou My Vision: This song will accompany us through Lent, reminding us to turn to God for our vision, wisdom, and security.
