What Parents Should Know: Stellar Kart is one of many pop-punk bands in Christian music. Their positive message is a wonderful antidote to the disillusionment of many secular bands in that genre.
What Stellar Kart Says: “The album certainly has a positive outlook on life and [is] full of hope. It’s a realization that we can’t make it though this life on our own…but we can do it with God’s help by allowing him to step in and take control.”
Discussion Questions: Do you feel you have control of your life? Why or why not? How do you deal with feeling out of control? Read aloud Deuteronomy 4:39. What does trying to control our lives say about our faith? How much responsibility do we have for our own lives?
