Overview

Often the gospel can become only a legal means of forgiveness - like a marriage which exists only to pay the mortgage.
Lost in Wonder is a call back to the joy of our salvation and our first love for Christ. It explores our current and eternal union with Christ using the Biblical analogy of marriage - and shows the profound beauty in both.
