From John L Bell and the Wild Goose Resource Group, nineteen songs that are singable, road tested and gutsy. They include ancient words, familiar tunes, biblical poetry and global testimony, with themes from mission to mourning and the sacraments to the environment, enabling us to sing urgently and authentically in expression of perennial concerns and pressing issues of today. PDF format only.
