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.
Future/Past: We sang this song to celebrate God’s drawing near to us.
Where God Has Always Been: We sang this song to proclaim God’s care for the weary and cast aside.
Rise Up: This song offered us language to petition God to rise to the defense of the vulnerable, and also served to challenge ourselves to live lives in defense of the vulnerable.
Heart With No Companion: This song is about God’s love breaking into desperation.
Eternal Anchor: This song is about God’s grafting of the seemingly least likely into the family of God.
Doxology: We close our time together each week with this proclamation that God is worthy of praise from every inch of the cosmos.
