In so many ways it was quite surreal – that many people coming together, from different places, many not knowing the others, but all connected somehow. That many people in the room from so many years who all know me so well, was sorta ‘scary’… you should try it sometime… something like at least 3 different worlds colliding on the same day. Glad you all didn’t have too much time to compare notes!
I pray that I can become even a tenth of the man of God that you all see me as. I’m just one beggar, trying to point other beggars to bread, really. One who is discovering the freedom God desires for us in worship and life that wants to encourage others toward the same. Thank you for your love and support over these last 20 years (or at least "your" part of those 20 years or more). I would definitely not be the person that I am today without each of you. Keep worshiping God with all your heart, with all your mind, soul and strength!!
