Remember God Loves You (song)

A song for young people!

Remember God Loves You: in Baptism, in Communion, in our gathering. We experience God’s love through those around us; God’s love touches all the senses!

An audio recording:

Go And Tell (song)

On this Third Sunday after the Epiphany, Year C, we read Luke 4:14-21 as the gospel text in the Revised Common Lectionary (RCL).

In 1999, the BC Synod of the ELCIC held a youth gathering in the Okanagan. The theme of the gathering was “Go and Tell,” and the guiding text for the weekend retreat was Luke 4:18-19.

In the spirit of youth gatherings, and in congregational song, here is a piece you might use in your community!

To hear it as it was done at that 1999 youth gathering, check out this YouTube clip.
