An article in the Cleveland Plain-Dealer on the Alive Christian Music Festival quotes Dan Haseltine, lead singer and songwriter for Jars of Clay, as follows:

"Last December, Bono of U2 came to Nashville and met with a bunch of us to talk about his AIDS Project in Africa. But before he began, he talked about songwriting. He said, 'Every song does not have to be a commercial for God. If you're a Christian, you see the world through Christian eyes. That will be reflected in everything you write.' "
