Are You Good and Are You Strong? (Questions for a Loving God)
Words by Jann Aldredge-Clanton, music by Larry E. Schultz
Alfred Church Choral Series
Are You Good and Are You Strong? seeks to express theodicy struggles as it presents honest questions asked by children of all ages to God during times of grief. The text provides an effective means of conversing with children and ministering to them in difficult situations. The theodicy questions conclude with the hopeful prayers that God would "keep us safely from all harm," and "rock us gently in Your arms."
