City Psalms One
These songs are prayers for our hometown, and ideas that challenge us to explore how to be the love of Christ in our city. We hope they encourage and challenge you, too. The overall theme of this collection of songs is waking up to a beautiful, cracked, dry city that needs the love of God and His people, and a direct petition to God to show us how and where to begin.
City Psalms Two
We’ve begun to catch glimpses of the Church working together in prayer, service, and love; but it’s not always easy. We’ve found ourselves often skeptical of each other, not given to cooperation and unity. These songs have become an expression of our desire for Jesus to continue healing and remaking each of us in our inmost places, so that His love flows out beyond our four walls, and into the heart of the city we love.
City Psalms Three
Over the past several years our society has experienced widening division. We've also witnessed how Christian unity has the potential to release hope and vision in the midst of fear and disharmony. The Church has a central role to play in these unstable times. The songs on this album express a deep conviction about the barriers that exist between congregations in our city. Martin Luther King, Jr. is famously quoted as saying, "It is appalling that the most segregated hour of Christian America is 11 o'clock on Sunday morning." Positive change is happening in Tucson and we are resolved to be an answer to Jesus' prayer in John 17 - that we would be one as He and the Father are one.
