The Songs of God

20–24 April 2020 (Mon–Fri)

Imagine the prospect of God singing a song for you. Zephaniah paints this picture to illustrate one of the ways in which God restored and renewed his people after long years of hardship. This week we will unpack the lyrics of some of those songs so we too can be healed and gladdened in heart.
