One Step Lantern create Christian worship music, centred on Jesus through God’s word, with lyrics drawn from the bible. The first album “5+2″ is now available via the shop, itunes, amazon mp3 and Spotify.
A bit about the vision behind the music – as well as having a strong focus on scripture in the lyrics (“One Step Lantern” comes from Psalm 119:105), the vision is to bring what we have to meet the needs of others. It first took a meagre offering of 5 loaves and 2 fish (5+2!) before Jesus fed 5,000 people (account in Matthew 14:13-21). In that account, Jesus first tells his disciples to feed the crowd. They cobble together 5 loaves and 2 fish. Jesus takes their meagre offering, breaks it and more than meets the needs of the people gathered through it. In the same way, we are called to bring what we have to Jesus to meet the needs of others – it might be money, but it might be music, art, initiative, skills and so on. Whatever we bring, Jesus can take it, break it, and use it for his purposes… in this case, it’s music!
