How do you say thank you to a guy who has served so faithfully for OVER 20 years?

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

That’s one way.

Another way is to think about all the things that started 20 years ago.

Like Spongebob Squarepants. Like Bluetooth. Like the iBook (for real! Apple’s first iBook came out 20 years ago!) Like all the fears around Y2K. Like “Who Wants to Be A Millionaire?” Like USB flash drives. Like the Matrix.

Oh my goodness.

Another way is to simply say it:

Thank you. Thank you for playing your bass so consistently. Week in and week out. Thank you for helping us to worship. Thank you for leading people into the presence of Jesus. Thank you!

Thank you, Rod Linn! Thank you!!
