Different Kind of Music Tour

Kara Powell | Nov 16, 2009

I was really encouraged by this article in “Christianity Today” about musicians’ heart for justice. I thought you might be too.

I especially appreciated this part about Steven Curtis Chapman:

“Steven Curtis Chapman credits his daughter Emilywho encouraged her parents to adopt orphans from Chinafor helping him to think through social justice and Christian engagement in a sinful world.

‘Emily looks at James 1:27, about taking care of widows and orphans and keeping oneself unspotted by the world. She is saying, ‘If we can just get those two together, we’ll be on a roll.’”

Well said. Is it just me or do kids often get justice before adults do?
