A while back I posted about the poor quality of children's music produced by Christians. Well here is some good news. Sovereign Grace Ministries is releasing a new children's CD. I've listened to the preview clips and from what I've heard they've done an excellent job. Bob Kauflin wrote about it on his blog and explained the reasoning for producing it. The people who wrote the songs for the album are some of the very same who are writing great songs for the church today.
Here's what the site has to say about the new CD:
To Be Like Jesus contains twelve worship songs that teach the fruit of the Spirit in a creative and memorable way.Through these songs kids will learn that Jesus is our perfect example of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness,and self-control. More than that, they’ll discover that we can’t be like Jesus unless we trust in the power of his cross to forgive us and the power of his Spirit to change us.
Needless to say, you won't be finding this kind of explanation on the back of your generic, overpriced, mass produced, cookie cutter "HOTT 25 Worship Songs 4 KIDS!" CD anytime soon. I appreciate Sovereign Grace Ministries so much for writing songs from the church, for the church.
