Everlasting Arms

A few weeks ago on the main RevGal blog, we asked for descriptions of who we are as RevGalBlogPals. What words or phrases come to mind when you think of our community?
Those words and phrases were turned into a wordle and into new verses for the old hymn Leaning on the Everlasting Arms.
At Big Event 5.0 last week, we sang the old and then the new verses at our opening and closing worship services. We hope you'll join in as we seek to "pray twice" in this way.

Here among these friends, truth we dare to speak,
leaning on the everlasting arms.
Courage we will find, as Your way we seek,
leaning on the everlasting arms.

Leaning, leaning, safe and secure from all alarms!
Leaning, leaning, leaning on the everlasting arms.

In our sistership see God's realm is here,
leaning on the everlasting arms.
Share our stories, joy, laughter, hope, and tears,
leaning on the everlasting arms.
