Relevant Magazine has a grand interview with Jon Foreman, the front man (or foreman, if you will?) for the band Switchfoot. I’ve been into this band since their album The Legend of Chin, then sort of into them for New Way to Be Human, then not so much after that. It’s not them; it’s me.
But it would appear that I’ve been missing out. Switchfoot is, officially, a Christian band. Yet, they’ve made an impact in the “Secular” or “totally normal” arena, too. And not like Amy Grant, either.
You can read the entire interview here, or just get the gist of how they roll with this quote:
“But I think the point is ultimately not about me. And if you approach the world with the apron of a servant, then you are allowed to go places that you can’t go if you approach it with the crown of a king.”
Well said, Jon Foreman.
