Colin Buchanan - A True Celebrity
Colin Buchanan is, to my son and countless other kids like him, the equivalent of what John Piper is to Christian hedonists, Gresham Machen is to the OPC and John Stott is to English public schoolboys. The kid absolutely loves him. I have friends up in Aberdeen who took their son to one of Colin's gigs and every night before they went to bed the little fella prayed for Colin like he was his best friend.
For those of you who don't know him the guy is a genius. He's an Australian children's entertainer who has done CDs, DVDs and books. Kids absolutely love him. I remember being at Keswick one evening a few years ago. I'd arrived late so as to miss either Stuart Townend or the Gettys crooning I can't remember which one but they welcomed onto the stage Colin Buchanan. I thought who is this middle aged Aussie singing odd songs; but that was before I had kids. Little did I know I was in the presence of the George Whitefield of children's singers.
Colin does a tour most years to the UK and CFP have brought out some books of his which we're using for family devotions. They are really fantastic.
