Faith, Doubt and Nickel Creek

(Filed under: Interviews)

Religion columnist Terry Mattingly covers the bluegrass band Nickel Creek and their mix of faith and doubt. It includes a great line from guitarist Sean Watkins:

"I'm so sick of sugar-coated songs from the Christian perspective," he said, in his online journal. "One of the most comforting and inspiring lines to me is from the last chorus of 'Come Thou Fount' where it says, 'Prone to wander, Lord I feel it. Prone to leave the God I love.' Not many un-watered-down songs make it through the filter of the Christian music industry mafia these days."
