Dream Label Group is making preparations for the Christmas season with the latest in their Dream Christmas series. 29:11 Worship, Futures, All Creatures and Joel Vaughn all contributed songs to Volume 7. The new EP is available now to pre-save ahead of its October 28 release. In this TCB Exclusive, All Creatures talk about their new holiday song “God Be With Us” and their favorite Christmas album.

What is the meaning you hope listeners take from “God Be With Us”?
We live in what some would call a hopelessly divided world. Love, civil discourse and mutual respect seem like relics of a lost past. The Christmas story, however, always reminds us that when God steps into our midst, things change. Our hope is that this song would inspire listeners to pray that God would make His presence known and that He would bend our hearts back towards being bringers of love, peace and hope. Christians are supposed to BE Christ to the world and we hope that this song reminds us of that.

Peace is one of the focuses during the Advent season. How do you have a personal connection with “Peace” during the Christmas season?
I (Chris) have a 7-year-old and a 4-year-old, plus a puppy, and six chickens. My house is rarely what you would call “peaceful”, especially at Christmas time when sugar intakes are higher and more people come around. All of that reminds me that peace doesn’t usually mean silent nights and candlelight, but rather stillness, hope and joy amid chaos. Childbirth is a perfect picture of peace.

Which holiday album puts you most into the Christmas spirit?
Honestly, the Charlie Brown Christmas album by the Vince Guaraldi Trio works every time for me.

What are your biggest hopes personally and professionally as we prepare for 2023?
Between All Creatures, Chris’s solo project, Neon Feather and the myriad other projects we have going on, peace is a need for our hearts and minds. We’re both big believers in these songs and the abilities God has given us and we’re really hopeful to see the fruit of our labor, mostly in seeing what God is going to do with it all in 2023. We’re also praying and hoping for peace to flood the earth this year; for the Ukraine war to end, for political divisions to be healed and for the church to return to a posture of love and humility.
