This is the closing track from Jon Foreman
's solo EP Sunlight
, the first installment in his Wonderlands project. The Switchfoot frontman told CBN the story behind the song: "'All Of God's Children' was inspired by the front page of a newspaper, day in, day out atrocities. Today, there's some mosque that's just been blown to pieces... and, you know, some famous spokesman pleading guilty to pedophile charges and just awful things that happen. But today's no different than any other day. That's the news - that's what happens every day. And so for me, 'All Of God's Children' is thinking, 'Wow, these are my brothers and sisters on the planet, these are fellow human souls, and as much as I might disagree with a lot of them, we're going to have things that we can find in common as well.' The biggest one is that we were made in the image of the unmade maker, and that if you truly believe in the liturgy of the church, He loves us. That kind of changes the perspective on all of those atrocities."
