Ian's 2012 album 'Good News'
The Good News contains songs of
truth, hope, love and the announcement of the goodness of God. Born out of a 2 year re-discovery of ‘What is the Good News ?’,
Ian says “It’s been a fun journey. I don’t think I’ve cracked it yet, and I probably never will, but one thing I’m certain of is that the
Good News is better than I ever thought it was. The Jews said it was a scandal and a stumbling block, the Greeks thought it was
absurd and utter nonsense (1 Cor 1:23 amp). Paul said that all would be judged according to his interpretation of the gospel (Rom
2:16) Paul also said that it was ‘The glad message of the glory of the happy God’ (1Tim 1:11) - If the good news doesn’t sound too
good to be true we haven’t heard it right”.
We believe these songs carry strong biblical truth and the deep presence of God. We believe these songs are going to inspire,
empower and impact many lives as people encounter and engage with a God who is full of love, kindness and mercy.
