The Church Within Such Turbulent Times
Words by Gary L. Lake Dillensnyder, 2011
Music: tune, ARLINGTON, by Thomas A. Arne, 1762
This hymn by United Methodist pastor Gary L. Lake Dillensnyder speaks of the message of the church in times of conflict, war, oppression, trouble and injustice. The author writes the following: "The writing of 'The Church Within Such turbulent Times' was written as I reflected upon the current global situation and the approaching tenth anniversary of 9/11, thinking specifically of the church's ministry/mission/witness about being often in contrast of our cultural norms and that turbulent times are rich for proclaiming the Realm of Christ and Christ as our Sovereign."
