In April, when the decision was made to go in this direction with worship, I had coffee with Shawna, and told her about my very basic plan. She asked me how I was planning on raising the sponsorships, and I really had no idea. Like I mentioned in Goodbye Pride, asking for help is absolutely one of the hardest things about this whole journey for me.
So she said, ‘why don’t we make you a video?’ And bam, here we are.
Honestly, I had concerns that it would be weird. Not because Shawna wasn’t capable, but I didn’t want to make something all about me. But I love the finished product. I love that it’s not all about me, because this isn’t all about me. YEARofWORSHIP is about my team. It’s about our church. It’s about building and growing a community of worshippers in a city that influences the world.
If you haven’t yet, please watch it. And tell Shawna how awesome she is.
And Shawna… thank you. Thank you for believing in me, thank you for making this, thank you for being awesome.
