  7. God's Voice Anywhere
    By: Richard Bruxvoort Colligan

    Every great religious tradition has ideas about how the Holy is present. Christian teaching sometimes lists the orthodox ways God is revealed and how prayer works. These are good things. However, if we align too tightly to particulars, we may lose the sense of God's mystery which may be essential to a thriving faith. This song is an effort to explore with young people around the campfire some of the ways we might experience God.

    By: Richard Bruxvoort Colligan

    • The lead sheet product includes lead sheet plus songleader's guide and congregational melody line.
    • "I Am For Peace" is from Richard Bruxvoort Colligan's album, "Love Stands With."

    Psalm 120 is the voice of the psalmist desperate. At one point in the psalm, the psalmist throws their head back and wails, "I am for peace but whenever I open my mouth, they are for violence!" This is a song for sidewalk, street and capital steps. The rerfain may stand alone at a protest rally or the entire song can be sung to name moments of our lives ready for serious change. Particularly adventurous communities may invent verses that hit home at the time of singing.
