worship music for sunday, june 21

Working off of the readings for this week (Job 38:1-11, 2 Corinthians 6:1-13, Mark 4:35-41), I'm going to be incorporating the following musical themes into the service: guidance, faith, grace, God's power, trust, and God's presence. Themes of comfort also work, as you'll see from the list of the top 10 worship songs for this Sunday.

"Praise You In This Storm" by Casting Crowns might be a somewhat obvious choice for this week, although the song isn't super-friendly in the congregational sense. Slipping it in as an offertory might be an option, depending on the comfort level of your congregation with somewhat challenging music.

I'm also playing around with a longer/different arrangement of "Whole World in His Hands" by Tim Hughes. I like the recorded version, but I'm thinking of adding a guitar solo and some brass to the mix in order to give the song a little more contrast, in addition to lengthening it out a bit. Depending on the sermon theme, there is also the possibility of tying in some baptism stuff with the stormy waters that the disciples seem to find themselves in...

As this Sunday is also Father's Day, there are some obvious tie-ins that your service might require...depending on the sermon and theme of the service, songs with guidance, trust, and presence themes could work here as well.

If you're looking for some additional song recommendations based on these themes, make sure you check out the searchable Song Index.
