Similar lyrics are spread throughout Kensrue's music, both in Thrice and in his solo works.From 2012 until 2014, he served as worship pastor of Mars Hill Church, where he formed The Modern Post, which released the EPs Grace Alone in 2012 and Lowborn King in 2014. Kensrue designed the album artwork for all parts of The Alchemy Index, Thrice's fifth studio recording.
