As Christians around the world focus on the Last Supper and it’s significance over Easter, the British Gospel group, Out Of The Ashes, shares God’s love for all people through their latest song.
Their new single and video, Crazy Love pays homage to ‘The Last Supper’, with the group all around a table eating and drinking together, whilst reflecting on what the lyrics are about. The song depicts the essence of what the back story of Christianity rests upon, which is the love of Jesus Christ who knowingly sacrificed himself on a cross to save humanity.
Penny Lyon and Kevin Washburn, who are the backbone of Out Of The Ashes, have been on a mission to share hope, joy and encouragement through ministry and music. Last year saw them receive extensive support from numerous UK national media, and regular airplay from BBC Radio 2 for their most recent studio album ‘Fears, Secrets, and Lies’. Now in 2018 they have come up with another masterpiece, Crazy Love.
Out Of The Ashes have a quirky edge that always brings something fresh and zesty to the table, while conveying thought-provoking, challenging song writing thanks to lead vocalist Penny. Sharing her thoughts on the Crucifixion, she says:
“The crucifixion of Christ is spoken about on a regular basis; imagery of a cross is always around us in Western society, be it on a pendant or a church building. It is therefore easy to become blinded by the enormity of what it represents, how often do people really think about what Jesus Christ actually went through, and endured for the sake of the world?
“Crucifixion is one of the most barbaric forms of execution imaginable, and is still used in some cultures today. A tortuously slow, excruciatingly painful death in as public a manner as its perpetrators can achieve. 2,000 years ago, the Roman soldiers responsible were highly skilled in ensuring that death would be painful and lingering.
“Christ knew what would happen, that he would suffer indignity, brutality and unbelievable torture, but endured all of this without one single moment of reproach to anyone. Extraordinary love to this degree can, surely, only be described as ‘crazy’? It is love beyond our understanding – Crazy Love.”
As always, Out of the Ashes have put across their message in the most delightful way possible, with intricate production and compelling instrumentation, perfectly paving the way for their fourth studio album due out later this year.
