  1. Shane – I greatly appreciated this interview. I bypassed it at first because I thought Sara fell squarely within that “CCM” framework that I find so bland. I appreciated her own thoughts on songwriting and artistry as a Christian. I have to go pick up some of her music now that I know it’s not all “positive and encouraging”!
