If you have children (1-10yrs old) and have not heard of Colin Buchanan today is your lucky day (providentially of course). Colin Buchanan is a leading children’s entertainer from Australia, but more importantly, he creates children’s music that is God-honouring and theologically sound. His newest album is dedicated to R.C. Sproul and has a song called “Words that end in SHUN” which explains words such as justification, propitiation, redemption, etc. If adults had the grounding of truth found in his songs they would be off to a good start. Many of his songs are bible verses, so it also helps in scripture memory for children. I really cannnot recommend him highly enough (he is also an extreme mountain biker). Buy his cds and dvds from his website, or The Good Book Company (unfortunately they are out of stock on a number of items). He also has a few books related to his albums which are good for family devotions.
Now, if you live within 3-4 hours of Edinburgh Colin will be in concert at Carrubbers on 11 June at 5pm (he is also in Stirling on 7 June). Tickets are £4 and worth every penny. You can buy tickets at the door, or contact info is found at Colin’s website here. If you are interested in getting cds or dvds the prices at concerts are the cheapest you will ever find. Bring the whole family, young and old, and come for a delightful Christ exalting time. The concert is about an hour and there will be food and a chance to meet Colin afterwards. We’re coming home a day early from our holiday to go to the concert!
