Recording artist Jessa Anderson and I talk about the tension in the Christian music industry between making good music with good theology, how all of life’s struggles can’t be fixed in a 3 and half minute song with a pretty bow at the end of it, and the lure of writing in a way that will get you on the radio. We talk about the depression and anxiety ministry leaders face and how our churches and Christian music need to give more exposure to these darker sides of our faith walk. If you are a music fan of any kind, are a ministry leader, or want to know how to better support your ministry leaders, this is a great episode for you.
