Big Picture

This world is full of believers whose voices are not being heard because they do not fit into mainstream Christianity. Therefore, the emergence of the spiritual underground, which is buzzing with new life and innovation as a random network of misfits find each other, and a much needed place of safety. These past few years, Common Hymnal has served as a connecting point for this community, and, in the process, stumbled on some beautiful songs, some compelling stories and some really interesting ideas. A key thread: worship with a social conscience. We share the treasure we are finding via this site, our socials, our Spotify playlist and a newsletter. Our hope is to encourage these unconventional communities, and to foster a meaningful and consequential exchange between the tribes.
