The Courage to Say No

The Courage to Say No (CD)
Sixteen songs for Lent and Easter sung by the Wild Goose Worship Group

John L Bell and Graham Maule

Tracing the sometimes sure, sometimes faltering steps of Jesus and his followers through the entire season of Lent, to Easter Day and then beyond, these songs allow us to reflect on their progress, enter their experience and ultimately to make their confusion, doubt, joy and liberation our own. Many are four-part harmony, which will be satisfying for music groups or choirs to sing, as well as being accessible to congregations.

There is also a Courage to Say No songbook, with 23 songs.
