We are 9 days away from opening Center City Church. So exciting. There’s a ton going on right now, and I spent my day doing exactly the opposite of what I would have expected a week and a half before we open our church: in the court room.

My jury summons instructed me to arrive at the Mecklenburg County Courthouse in Uptown Charlotte at 8am. I was selected on the very first case of the day and spent the entire day hearing testimonies. Crazy enough, this case has carried over into tomorrow, meaning I get another full day ahead of me in the court room.

I’m so grateful for Pastor Will Morgan and Pastor John Gum. These guys have been working so hard. We are together in this. Even when jury duty calls!
