Canadian, Jonathan Urie, is a Christian, music composer, song writer, pianist and radio program narrator. Many of the past several years have been devoted to the development of the celebrated Helen Steiner Rice music project of 20 songs and 5 albums.
A Journey of the Spirit that began 25 years ago has taught Jonathan much about patience, perseverance, the power of prayer, trust, faith, courage and the guiding hand of the Lord. Along the way many new songs have emerged that reflect the valleys and mountain tops of the Journey of the Spirit. Many of these moments are part of this CD.
