“I THINK I’M LEARNING SOMETHING ABOUT IDENTITY, WHICH WEAVES INTO CALLING WHICH THEN BECOMES OUR LEGACY.” -Phil Wickham

Phil Wickham, a leading voice in the modern worship music scene, began to struggle with his vocals while on tour in New England. It eventually led to the doctor’s telling him he had to remain silent for an undetermined amount of time.  Given the opportunity to listen more intently, Phil recieved some understanding about his IDENTITY, how his gifting wrapped into that identity, and the legacy it was leaving.

Due to the loss of his voice, Phil had to cancel a few dates including the conference Catalyst.  He decided to write a letter to share at the conference what had happened and what God was teaching him through it which he posted on his site. I resonated with Phil’s letter because identity has been a major theme in my life which has been reflected in the ministry that I lead at Faith Bible Church.  I would encourage you to read Phil’s letter here and reflect on it!

*The College ministry that I lead put together an EP based on the theme of identity.  Check it out here.
