The Greatest Gain

Current culture prizes earthly success far above the Christian’s call to appreciate life abundant in the now, much less treasure eternal later. Looking around; it’s hard to blame modern-day culture for not recognizing our future glory crowns. They’ve doubtfully seen evidence to convince them that we value heavenly inheritance over all the sweet distractions of a fallen world.

Fighting the Good Fight

Any band or artist concerned with souls will be carrying a spiritual burden. Any band or artist sharing Jesus and praying for conversion and transformation will be entering a spiritual battle. The fight is real. If you’re in this more for your art or “making it” as a band, then you don’t need to worry about that. You might get naturally tired, but it’s nothing like the spiritual burden and battle you enter when you step into enemy territory to proclaim the good news.

C&L! Artist Interview - Scruffhouse

Australian born and bred, Scruffhouse, is our latest addition to the C&L! artist roster. I had the absolute privilege of taking a little time to chat with Peter from Scruffhouse.
Jesus’ well-known “two paths” analogy is one of his most famous and certainly one of his most haunting. Jesus’ message is simple: eternity is real, and we all have a choice to make. Either we will spend all of eternity with God or without Him.

One Million Drunken Polish Youth

Sometimes God allows us to be close to sin so we don't forget where our story started.
I’m not implying His intentions are us jumping back in again.Quite to the contrary, He’s calling us to rise up and stand out like a beacon of beckoning hope.

Unhappy, Unloved and Out of Control

Unhappy, unloved and out of control read the front cover of the Time Magazine that year in the UK. It certainly seemed a good description for a lot of the young people we had come in contact with through our efforts to reach young people in the southern borough of London that we lived in.

'Good' and 'Hard' always go together

We have a family motto, “good and hard always go together”. I heard this all the time growing up. Maybe this doesn’t seem like such a revolutionary thought, but this simple concept has had an enormous impact on my life.

Come Hell, High Water or both

Most evenings in my home right now involve preparing and eating dinner together as a family, cleaning up, then finding our seats in front of the TV. It’s Olympic season, and we’re all in on Rio 2016. Out of the four of us, I’m probably the least athletic no thanks to the fact I never played a single organized sport growing up. Nor does my body - or mind - seem to have the faculties required to endure pain for seasons unendingly.

Wood & Wire

When I was fourteen, I heard “Summer Song” by Joe Satriani on the stereo in my Uncle's truck. In those four minutes and fifty-six seconds, I decided what I wanted to do with my life: Play guitar.

Art With A Message Is Propaganda

Speaking truth into the music and art scene today can be intimidating. The gospel is so countercultural. Also, the sense is that everyone’s already heard and are not interested. Possibly one of the more intimidating obstacles is the concept that faith should be a private matter and not to be spoken of in public. Based on this assumption people will say that we shouldn’t “use” the platform of art and music to preach. Or that art with a message is propaganda.
