To aid congregations and individual disciples as they witness and serve those in need.
An old adage is that a congregation that is focused only on itself and ministering to only its own members is a “Dead Sea” church – everything flowing in, nothing going out. The songs and hymns in this collection speak to a variety of problems that have plagued the world through “civilization.” Some are more specific to recent times. Ministers who wish to offer “safe” and pleasing messages to their congregants should avoid this collection. We believe with such theologians and biblical scholars as Paul Tillich and Walter Brueggemann that the mission of the church includes giving “comfort to the afflicted” as well as “afflicting the comfortable.” We hold Jesus would agree.
