Song Story: “Still You Are Good”

“Even if the storm never ceases raging; if the water never turns to wine…still you are good to me.”

In this beautiful, moving song, one small word beckons us to deeply-rooted, biblical faith: still. The familiar imagery it contains (the parting of the Red Sea, water to wine, calming of a storm, unseen promises) encourages us to take stock of our own lives and stories, and recommit our trust. It is a necessary practice to remind ourselves through gratitude that God is good…still.

Worship As the Reordering of Power

Christian worship is about rightly-ordering power through the love, mercy, and justice of God in Jesus Christ so God’s people live as faithful worshipers, bearing light in dark places and spreading salt in dying places. We show God glory by reflecting His character in action, not just by saying or singing the Word.
