I just got the Reach Life Records project 13 letters. It is amazing…If you are an urban youth worker doing discipleship you really need to check this out. On this project each MC takes on one of Paul’s 13 letters and puts it to song..Which I would imagine was not an easy task. But this is well done, the rhymes are solid and the theology is out of this world.
Soon they are going to release a curriculum that goes along with the album… you can check it out here.
This I think is so needed for urban youth workers. So if you are an urban youth worker I encourage you to look into Reach Records and ReachLife ministries as well. If like me you just used to be a youth guy and now you spend your doing “big people’s church” you should check it out and recommend it to your youth peeps.
The theology found here is solidly gospel based, these are guys who understand the doctirenes of grace, so you won’t find any semi-pelagian goobly-gook or emergent craziness.
The Music includes Sho Baraka, Lacrae, Json, Tedashi, Trip LeeFlame and I-Lyfe.
It is a great tool for those of us who want to see God’s glory amplified in the neighbor, so check it out. Plus as a side note those of you who do urban ministry know that the money is always difficult to come by..these guys are really working hard for the kingdom..so help em’ out and buy their stuff.
PS: You know we love good hip-hop and we also love John Piper..well here is Trip Lee blogging over at Dr. John’s website. Click
