Notable Quotes:

  • - While talking about fans putting Christian artists on a pedestal, Randy said, "It's born out of a need for heroes. And though you can say, well God is holy and he loves you, in our subconscious we're saying, 'Yeah, but can I have a hero with skin wrapped around it?'" from Crossrhythms interview

  • - "I just think that people who have trouble with some of the diversity and nuance of a songwriter are being a bit linear in their vision and that it deflates the power of the gospel message to use (the Name of Jesus) so frequently. It just becomes the period at the end of the sentence." from Joyjunction interview
