Listen to my friend Cass:
I don’t really think that there is one single thing and one exact defined path that God has planned for us. I do think that he created us uniquely, that he gave us each gifts that equip us for something special, and that one of the best things that can happen to anybody is for them to be living within the way that God created them. I am certain that Cass was created for music. I don’t know what that looks like for him. Perhaps he is supposed to write songs, or teach, or lead worship, or be the next big thing. Whatever it is I am glad he is working use the gifts God have him, and learning how to use those gifts to bring a bit of God’s creative caracter to the world.
I also know that a big part of Cass’ journey to using his talents fully is to record an album, which takes a lot of time, energy, and money (funny how this stuff always needs money). Cass has a Kickstarter project going to raise money to record an album. He is trying to raise a lot of money, because it takes a lot of money to record an album. Here is the thing though, he’s not asking you to just give him money, really he is asking you to pre-buy the album, or concert tickets, or dinner or even a spot in the liner notes. You get something back for your faith in him.
So, yes, I’m asking you to give my friend money. A lot of people pitched in to make our trip to Uganda possible, and that trip is going to be a big part of Beth and I learning how to live our lives as God created us, I don’t really see much difference in Cass’ project.
But, the people who gave us money believed in what we are doing…that is a really big important part of this. So, here is what I am asking:
- check out Cass’ music. You can find a lot of it to listen to for free on his web site www.cassharrismusic.com
- If you want to find him on facebook and twitter ask him some questions or something.
- If you like his music and want to support his art go the his Kickstarter project and give him some money.
- The really important thing is to tell a lot of other people about the project. A whole bunch of people giving a little bit of money will get him to his goal, but that will only happen if you spread the word, so tell your friends.
Ok, thats it, thanks for reading.
