I just received this letter from Ann Casey, a patron of our resources who has used our materials for years in her ministry. Recently, she sent me this very encouraging note that I would like to share with you:
First I want to wish you a wonderful, Merry Christmas! Second, I want to say thank you for your ministry. It has had a huge impact on our church’s creative ministry program. We started a group over 10 years ago by using some of your videos to instruct us and we are still going strong.
We recently held our annual fall performance in our small church and I wanted to share one of the original movements we choreographed to a song by Matthew West – “Do Something”. The theme for our program was “Service” and this song just touched my heart as I listened to it and seemed to be what we needed to use to end the program. We did as we often do, sat down and listened to the words and let God lead us with ideas to pull it together. I am very proud of the result and wanted to share it with you, particularly since we used the “God Rods” in the movement. I hope you enjoy it.
You may or may not remember our group, but we’ve run into you several times at the SC Baptist Creative Ministries conference, most recently held at White Oak Conference Center. Our group, the Creative Crusaders, always presents a piece at the conference – you may remember one in particular – “Think Before You Thay It” where we had a young man in jail for using his words in a mean way. It was sort of a mime-lip synch piece that was funny. Anyway, we always have our young people attend your classes at that conference [and we adults do too!] I think you are even friends on Facebook with Carrie Vaughn who is one of our leaders and also does the solo lead in this movement.
I hope you enjoy the piece because it is because of your ministry that we now have ours!
Best wishes – May God bless you and continue to bless your ministry!
Note: I love to see the choreography that others are doing. Thanks to Ann for sending me this one. Feel free to send you me your creations too!
