On the pages the links above are leading to, I have portrayed in which songs I am moved by the spiritual message of Runrig. I have summarized these pages and would like to permit Runrig to speak for themselves.
|Ambitions: "To find more time and settled lifestyle for a more active Christian involvement."||Colum McDonald would like "to find more time and a settled lifestyle for a more active Christian involvement". Runrig is a part of this involvement. Several members of the band are Christians and their spiritual background is prevalent in the texts of Runrig's songs. The band has a spiritual message for their listeners. A few years ago Mike Smith, of the Runrig management, remarked to me that "people know: Here is someone; and if they listen well they will find him".|
|"This is the way" is the message the Band gives. However, you will wait in vain for traditional Christian phrases. For this reason most people don't perceive people at work in Runrig, with a profound trust in God. The musicians know that classical Christian phrases like "Jesus lives" is meaningless to many people. Therefore Runrig's texts are filled with new definitions which proclaim the same message without the cliches. Examples of this can be found in these pages!|
