I love Christian songs because they are so meaningful! Many of these songs have been used in weddings, song services, graduations and other special events. Celebrating accomplishments, expressing sorrow and reflecting on a lifetime through images and video creates memories and bonds between one another. A photo slideshow is also a great way to organize photos of a particular time period. What are you favorite Christian songs to use in a slideshow?
