Flyby Review: Chris Tomlin Adore CD

I was so excited to add Chris Tomlin's new Christmas album to my Christmas music collection!  This all live album contains a mix of traditional Christmas classics and original Christmas songs.  It is unique in that it is all arranged as worship music.  This song list is great to listen to on your own or as part of a worship service.  

As I've been running my errands the last few days, I've noticed that more and more radio stations and stores are playing only secular Christmas songs for the public.  While I couldn't get through December without a good rendition of "Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer," I also really miss the religious songs as I prepare for the season.  There really is no reason to have Christmas at all if Jesus is not the focus.  (A big shout-out to our local Wal-mart, which has been playing a mix of religious and secular favorites in the Christmas section, and which proclaims "Merry Christmas" on many ads and decorations!)  Through our music, our actions and traditions (we DO have a "Sparkle Box"; we did NOT go shopping on Black Friday), our talk, and activities such as The Christmas Experience (more about that in a future post), we are trying to live the true meaning of the Season of Christmas for ourselves and our children.  This is why an album like this is so important.  Everything we do during Christmas should be Worship.  This album turns every song into a worship anthem as only Chris Tomlin can.

This new Christmas album released on October 23, 2015.  It features classic Christmas songs with a mix of original Christmas songs.  There are special guest performances from Lauren Daigle, All Sons & Daughters, Crowder, and more on this album.
