Called As Friends
A note from the producer - Called as Friends is a project that has been a long time coming. Over the years I have enjoyed Bob and Bruce's songs, and even performed one of Bruce's songs ('You are Glory') on one of my own recordings. When we were thinking of what to title this project, the theme that God seemed to highlight in our hearts through the lyrics of the songs was 'Called as Friends.' This title (which is also the name of one of Bob's songs) is reflective of the theme for two reasons: 1) As followers of Christ, God calls us His friends. He chooses us, and desires that we not only experience lives of faith, but that we would have life abundantly. 2) The process of this project has been a time of just enjoying friendship and fellowship with one another. As Christ followers we are called to be a Body, and this project has been a celebration of that. I hope you are blessed by this project, and I hope that you will take these songs, worship with us, and turn these prayers (written into song) and make them your prayers. Blessings, Joel Bidderman.
