Here is a video of the service yesterday at Shawnee Park:

Sea to Sea -- Church Send off / Commissioning from Dave Teitsma on Vimeo.

In the service, I introduced my bike and talked about the tour. We also followed the litany that the Sea to Sea office provided in order to send me off. It was a great experience and everything went as planned.

It was great to talk to everyone after the service and answer lots of questions and also hear how supportive everyone is. I bought several of the Shifting Gears books to sell afterwards. I wasn't sure that they would all go, but they did!

5 Days till I'm in Seattle!
