Otis' Dream

COMMON HYMNAL This world is full of believers whose voices are not being heard because they do not fit into mainstream Christian culture. 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 anticipated the future of the spiritual underground by building a virtual library to facilitate a vital and ongoing exchange of songs, stories and ideas between communities in this space. A recurring theme: Praise And Protest. To explore further, visit them at commonhymnal.com, or follow them on their socials @commonhymnal.
