  8. Together In This
    By: David Lunsford

    A moving song about sharing each other's burdens and loving and accepting each other as we are.  Beautiful production and artistry.  David Lunsford and the musicians at Eastlake Community Church in Washington state are creating some amazingly beautiful music that should be on the radio, but their lyrics are a bit too progressive and real for most CCM radio formats.

  9. We'll All Stand Together
    By: Amy Sens

    The imagery for We’ll All Stand Together comes from the book of Revelation. In the city of God, redeemed and made new, the people gather together at the banks of the river, a river of grace that blesses the whole city. We’ll All Stand Together works well at a faster tempo, and is a good one for starting or ending a worship service, especially one focused on social justice and solidarity. Amy Sens is an ordained UCC minister serving a congregation in Baltimore, MD. She has compiled an entire hymnal of bluegrass style worship songs with inclusive language and theology.
