A ton of great albums have arrived (or are arriving soon!) for summer. Here are a few that I’m looking forward to basking in.
A collection of songs celebrating the life of Jesus Christ sung through the lens of his last days on earth. Thematically arranged around the events of Holy Week.

Patrick Schlabs – Creaturewords
Patrick has created a beautifully arranged album full of songs that strive to use music in all its glory to faithfully tell the gospel story. A great listen throughout.
