Emerging from the rubble of Mars Hill Church (Seattle), Citizens & Saints is a worship band without a church home—at least how you once knew them when they first launched as Citizens. The band’s third album, A Mirror Dimly (buy), honestly documents a band’s doubts and confusion, faith and joy. Singer Zach Bolen admits “he’s so lost…drowning in doubt like never before,” an admission that comes on the heels of singing the confident refrain “his glory reigns!” This is the faith journey, learning that certainty is a myth but that the best things, kingdom things, await those of us willing to step out into the unknown. Citizens & Saints have learned just that and turned those lessons into a compelling musical journal.
