Dustin Kensrue Writes About His Move To Play Worship...

Posted by: Thomas Nassiff (06/25/12)
In this article, Dustin Kensrue discusses why his family is moving to Bellevue and how he felt he was called to dedicate himself to playing worship music. Thrice played its final show last week.
From the ArticleOver the last few years God, continued to give me a bigger and bigger vision of what I eventually Iím called to do, and given me the audacious goal of shaking things up in worship music culture and the church at large. I have a passion to see more songs that are 1) more cross/Christ-centered, and also 2) engage the culture directly, rather than endlessly recycling the Christian subculture. Despite my fears at failing and my doubts in my abilities, I am firmly convinced that this is Godís calling on my life.

He's a talented guy, but this is a major turnoff. Thrice was already too religious for my tastes. I am certain I will not enjoy this.

I've seen quite a few people get fucked up by doing what they thought was god's calling for their life. But I wish him the best of luck. At least he's doing what he believes in. It's still sad to lose his talent for secular music though. He's written some amazing songs that many people, no matter what belief or religion, can relate to.
