As many of you know I have been a writer for the youth ministry resource Interlinc for over a decade now. Interlinc is a great resource that uses Christian music and videos (as well as other media) for the “jumping off point” for Bible lessons. I write about 8 lessons a year for them and I really enjoy it. It gives me the opportunity to experience new music and gives a great creative outlet as I try to figure out the best way to create a teachable moment from someone else’s material.
My latest assignment was Cory Lamb’s video for Safe in Your Arms. I had never heard of Cory Lamb before, but this is a young artist worth checking out. The video tells a great story of unconditional love overcoming the tough times of life.
Cory also posted a little “behind the music” video to tell about his motivation for this song.
If you work with youth at all, especially creative youth, I highly recommend Interlinc. It’s a subscription based resource, in which you receive four boxes of music a year (a digital version is also available) and four video loops (DVD’s filled with the latest Christian music videos and other media) with a lesson attached to each album or video as well as a lot of other useful things. It really is a youth ministry gold mine.
