  • EARLY AGE.
  • 00:05:53.200 --> 00:05:54.220
  • MY BIG SISTER WAS 20.
  • 00:05:54.220 --> 00:05:56.030
  • SHE WAS KILLED IN A CAR
  • 00:05:56.030 --> 00:05:56.250
  • ACCIDENT.
  • 00:05:56.250 --> 00:05:58.110
  • ABOUT 18 MONTHS LATER, MY LITTLE
  • 00:05:58.110 --> 00:05:59.120
  • SISTER PASSED AWAY WITH

  • HELLFIRE, BRIMSTONE PREACHERS
  • 00:06:08.240 --> 00:06:10.150
  • AND, AT THE SAME TIME, WAS NOT A

  • GOOD FATHER.
  • 00:06:12.060 --> 00:06:13.270
  • HE WAS NOT A GOOD MAN.
  • 00:06:13.270 --> 00:06:14.280
  • LIVING WATER STILL FLOWS THROUGH
  • 00:06:15.070 --> 00:06:18.070
  • CRACKED VESSELS, AND SO I STILL
  • 00:06:18.070 --> 00:06:20.150
  • SAW GOD AT WORK IN MY CHILDHOOD,
  • 00:06:20.150 --> 00:06:22.170
  • BUT THE MAN THAT WOULD COME HOME

  • THE CREATOR HIMSELF, AND HE GAVE
  • 00:07:35.070 --> 00:07:36.270

  • AND I LEFT THE PARK, AND I
  • 00:07:55.290 --> 00:07:58.140
  • STARTED SHARING MY TESTIMONY.
  • 00:07:58.140 --> 00:08:00.100
  • I USED TO SAY I WASN'T REALLY

  • IT KIND OF HURTS MY FEELINGS,
  • 00:08:06.210 --> 00:08:09.040
  • TO TELL YA THE TRUTH,
  • 00:08:09.040 --> 00:08:10.180
  • BUT IT IS A MIRACULOUS THING
  • 00:08:10.180 --> 00:08:12.130
  • WHEN THE LORD TAKES BROKENNESS--
  • 00:08:12.130 --> 00:08:15.060
  • AND HE DOES THIS A LOT IN THE
  • 00:08:15.060 --> 00:08:16.200

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • THERE, WE DID THE MATH.
  • 00:37:53.000 --> 00:37:55.040
  • AND I ARRIVED IN THE SUMMER OF
  • 00:37:55.040 --> 00:37:57.150
  • 2007.
  • 00:37:57.150 --> 00:37:59.140
  • WE DID THE MATH VERY QUICKLY AND
  • 00:37:59.140 --> 00:38:00.230
  • DETERMINED THAT THE ONLY OPTION
  • 00:38:00.290 --> 00:38:03.290
  • WAS TO SELL THE CHURCH AND THE
  • 00:38:03.290 --> 00:38:05.020

  • 00:38:05.020 --> 00:38:08.010

  • MAYBE IN A RENTED STOREFRONT OR
  • 00:38:10.110 --> 00:38:12.020
  • SOMETHIN' LIKE THAT, AND WE SET

  • THE WHEELS IN MOTION TO DO THAT.
  • 00:38:14.200 --> 00:38:17.200
  • THAT WAS OUR PLAN, AND THEN GOD
  • 00:38:17.200 --> 00:38:19.210
  • HAD AN ENTIRELY DIFFERENT PLAN.
  • 00:38:19.210 --> 00:38:22.180
  • - CLIFTON: DON'T YOU JUST LOVE

  • IT
  • 00:38:23.120 --> 00:38:25.040
  • WHEN GOD'S PLANS COME TOGETHER?
  • 00:38:25.040 --> 00:38:26.200
  • - MICHAEL: THAT'S RIGHT, AND IT
  • 00:38:26.200 --> 00:38:27.220
  • TOOK A WHILE FOR HIS PLAN TO
  • 00:38:27.220 --> 00:38:29.020
  • REVEAL ITSELF TO US.
  • 00:38:30.250 --> 00:38:33.250
  • HE HAD TO PUT SOME OTHER THINGS
  • 00:38:33.250 --> 00:38:35.010
  • IN PLACE ALONG THE WAY BEFORE WE
  • 00:38:35.010 --> 00:38:37.010
  • COULD REALLY GET TO RUNNING,
  • 00:38:37.010 --> 00:38:39.120
  • AND, THAT WAS, THE WHEELS FOR
  • 00:38:39.230 --> 00:38:42.230
  • SELLING THE CHURCH JUST MOVED SO
  • 00:38:42.230 --> 00:38:45.010
  • SLOWLY, MUCH MORE SLOWLY THAN
  • 00:38:45.010 --> 00:38:46.250
  • WE THOUGHT.
  • 00:38:47.130 --> 00:38:50.130
  • AND WE THOUGHT WE'D BE OUT OF
  • 00:38:50.130 --> 00:38:51.040
  • THE BUILDING BY CHRISTMAS.
  • 00:38:51.040 --> 00:38:53.190
  • WE WERE STILL THERE IN
  • 00:38:53.190 --> 00:38:55.020

  • "WELL, WE'LL BE GONE BY EASTER,"
  • 00:38:55.240 --> 00:38:56.220

  • THEY HAD MAKEUP ON THEIR FACES.
  • 00:43:44.260 --> 00:43:47.240
  • THEY HAD YELLOW MAKEUP HERE
  • 00:43:47.240 --> 00:43:50.240
  • BECAUSE THEY HAD BEEN IN DAYS OF
  • 00:43:50.240 --> 00:43:52.220
  • PRAYER, I FOUND OUT LATER,
  • 00:43:52.220 --> 00:43:55.220
  • PRAYING AND HOPING, AND PRAYING
  • 00:43:55.220 --> 00:43:58.170
  • THAT THE FIRST PERSON THAT THEY

  • MET WOULD BE A WELCOMING PERSON.
  • 00:44:02.260 --> 00:44:05.260
  • THE FIRST QUESTION THAT THEY
  • 00:44:05.260 --> 00:44:08.200
  • ASKED ME WAS, "DO YOU BELIEVE IN
  • 00:44:08.200 --> 00:44:10.110

  • RISEN LORD," AND THEY SAID,
  • 00:44:18.120 --> 00:44:21.010
  • "DOES THIS CHURCH BELIEVE AS YOU
  • 00:44:22.060 --> 00:44:25.060
  • BELIEVE?"
  • 00:44:25.060 --> 00:44:27.010
  • AND I SAID, "YES, IT DOES, AND
  • 00:44:27.150 --> 00:44:30.150
  • WE WELCOME YOU.
  • 00:44:30.150 --> 00:44:33.100
  • PLEASE COME IN, AND I WANT TO
  • 00:44:33.100 --> 00:44:35.000
  • INTRODUCE YOU TO MY HUSBAND."
  • 00:44:35.000 --> 00:44:37.270
  • - CLIFTON: WOW.
  • 00:44:37.270 --> 00:44:38.260
  • - MICHAEL: SO THEN THEY CAME
  • 00:44:38.260 --> 00:44:39.170
  • DOWN TO MY OFFICE, AND THEY SAID
  • 00:44:39.170 --> 00:44:40.220
  • THEY WERE LOOKING FOR A CHURCH,
  • 00:44:40.220 --> 00:44:42.200
  • AND THEY NEEDED HELP WITH FOOD,
  • 00:44:42.200 --> 00:44:44.120
  • CLOTHING, TRANSPORTATION,
  • 00:44:44.120 --> 00:44:45.290
  • EMPLOYMENT, MEDICAL CARE...
  • 00:44:45.290 --> 00:44:47.240
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:44:47.240 --> 00:44:48.250
  • ...ET CETERA, ET CETERA,

  • ET CETERA!
  • 00:44:51.050 --> 00:44:54.050
  • AND I THOUGHT, "OH, GOODNESS,
  • 00:44:54.110 --> 00:44:57.110
  • THIS COULD SWAMP AN ALREADY
  • 00:44:57.110 --> 00:44:59.270
  • VULNERABLE CHURCH."
  • 00:44:59.270 --> 00:45:01.160
  • - CLIFTON: THERE GOES THE
  • 00:45:01.160 --> 00:45:02.050
  • $10.000!
  • 00:45:02.050 --> 00:45:02.210
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:45:02.210 --> 00:45:04.290
  • - MICHAEL: YOU GOT IT!
  • 00:45:04.290 --> 00:45:07.150
  • I TOLD THEM WE WERE BROKE.
  • 00:45:07.150 --> 00:45:09.220
  • WE WERE LOSING OUR CHURCH.
  • 00:45:09.280 --> 00:45:12.280
  • I DIDN'T SEE ANY WAY HOW WE
  • 00:45:12.280 --> 00:45:14.120
  • WOULD BE ABLE TO HELP THEM
  • 00:45:14.120 --> 00:45:16.110
  • MATERIALLY, BUT THEN, INSTANTLY,
  • 00:45:19.000 --> 00:45:22.000
  • I'M THINKING, I DON'T KNOW WHAT
  • 00:45:22.000 --> 00:45:24.210
  • WE'RE GONNA DO ABOUT THIS TO
  • 00:45:24.210 --> 00:45:25.250
  • WHAT JESUS SAYS, "IF SOMEONE
  • 00:45:27.000 --> 00:45:30.000
  • COMES TO YOU AND THEY ARE NAKED,
  • 00:45:30.000 --> 00:45:31.280
  • THEY'RE HUNGRY, THEY'RE THIRSTY,
  • 00:45:31.280 --> 00:45:34.130
  • THEY'RE HOMELESS, YOU DO IT TO
  • 00:45:34.130 --> 00:45:36.030
  • THEM, YOU'VE DONE IT TO ME; YOU
  • 00:45:36.200 --> 00:45:39.200
  • DON'T DO IT TO THEM, YOU'VE NOT
  • 00:45:39.220 --> 00:45:42.220
  • DONE IT FOR ME."
  • 00:45:42.230 --> 00:45:45.230
  • AND SO I HAD--
  • 00:45:45.230 --> 00:45:46.070
  • THERE WAS NO CHOICE.
  • 00:45:46.070 --> 00:45:47.100
  • IF WE'RE REALLY GOING TO CLAIM
  • 00:45:47.100 --> 00:45:48.050
  • THE TITLE OF "CHRISTIAN," WE
  • 00:45:48.050 --> 00:45:50.110
  • HAVE TO BE WILLING TO DO THE
  • 00:45:50.110 --> 00:45:52.190
  • DEEDS AND NOT JUST TALK THE
  • 00:45:52.190 --> 00:45:55.130
  • TALK, AND I FOUND MYSELF SAYING,
  • 00:45:55.130 --> 00:45:57.150
  • "LOOK, I DON'T KNOW HOW THIS IS
  • 00:45:57.150 --> 00:45:59.100
  • GONNA WORK OUT, BUT, YOU ALL,
  • 00:45:59.100 --> 00:46:01.010
  • COME ON, AND WE'LL FIGURE IT OUT
  • 00:46:01.010 --> 00:46:02.150
  • TOGETHER," AND THAT'S WHAT THEY
  • 00:46:02.150 --> 00:46:03.260
  • DID.
  • 00:46:03.260 --> 00:46:05.240
  • EVERYTHING CHANGED AFTER THAT!
  • 00:46:07.140 --> 00:46:10.140

  • 00:46:33.140 --> 00:46:36.140
  • DID YOU HAVE TO SUBJUGATE THAT
  • 00:46:36.140 --> 00:46:39.130

  • - AIMEE: WHAT WAS INTERESTING--
  • 00:46:52.090 --> 00:46:54.100
  • AND WE WERE JUST, SORT OF,
  • 00:46:54.100 --> 00:46:55.240
  • TALKING ABOUT THIS IN THE
  • 00:46:55.240 --> 00:46:57.240
  • GREENROOM-- IS THAT WHEN MICHAEL
  • 00:46:57.240 --> 00:46:59.270
  • DECIDED THAT THE HOLY SPIRIT
  • 00:46:59.270 --> 00:47:02.070
  • CAME TO HIM AND SAID, "I WANT
  • 00:47:03.160 --> 00:47:06.160
  • THE FIRST THING THAT I SAID WAS,
  • 00:47:09.170 --> 00:47:11.020
  • "WHO AM I TO ARGUE WITH THE
  • 00:47:11.020 --> 00:47:13.220
  • HOLY SPIRIT?"
  • 00:47:13.220 --> 00:47:15.160
  • - CLIFTON: WOW.
  • 00:47:15.160 --> 00:47:16.270

  • AND, "YES, I WILL SUPPORT YOU."
  • 00:47:19.270 --> 00:47:20.270
  • AND I DIDN'T KNOW HOW THAT WAS
  • 00:47:20.270 --> 00:47:21.200
  • GOING TO WORK.
  • 00:47:21.200 --> 00:47:23.190
  • I DIDN'T KNOW HOW IT WOULD LOOK.
  • 00:47:24.160 --> 00:47:27.160
  • I HAD JUST HAD ATTICUS, SO HE
  • 00:47:27.160 --> 00:47:29.050
  • WAS JUST A WEE THING, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:47:29.160 --> 00:47:32.160
  • MAYBE 2 YEARS OLD AT THE TIME,
  • 00:47:32.160 --> 00:47:35.020
  • BUT WHEN WE LEFT TO GO TO
  • 00:47:35.020 --> 00:47:36.100
  • SEMINARY, ATTICUS WAS GETTING
  • 00:47:38.040 --> 00:47:41.040
  • READY TO GO TO KINDERGARTEN.
  • 00:47:41.040 --> 00:47:43.130
  • I HAD ON MY PLATE THE FACT THAT
  • 00:47:43.130 --> 00:47:45.050
  • I NEEDED TO SUPPORT THIS FAMILY,
  • 00:47:45.050 --> 00:47:48.040
  • AND THAT WAS WORKING AS MANY
  • 00:47:48.040 --> 00:47:50.030
  • JOBS AS I COULD, AND THAT MEANT
  • 00:47:50.030 --> 00:47:52.180
  • RETOOLING MY THOUGHTS ABOUT A
  • 00:47:53.260 --> 00:47:56.260
  • CAREER, SO THINKING DIFFERENTLY,
  • 00:47:56.260 --> 00:47:59.180
  • USING, YOU KNOW, GOD'S GIFTS IN
  • 00:48:01.150 --> 00:48:04.150
  • THE WAY THAT HE GAVE THEM TO ME:
  • 00:48:04.150 --> 00:48:06.240
  • TEACHING, STARTING A CHORISTER'S
  • 00:48:08.130 --> 00:48:11.130
  • PROGRAM, AND HE ALSO GAVE ME THE
  • 00:48:11.130 --> 00:48:14.110
  • GIFT OF BEING ABLE TO SING WITH
  • 00:48:14.110 --> 00:48:16.180
  • THE OPERA COMPANY THAT WAS THERE
  • 00:48:16.180 --> 00:48:18.190
  • IN MILWAUKEE, SO THAT WORKED OUT
  • 00:48:19.000 --> 00:48:22.000
  • BEAUTIFULLY.
  • 00:48:22.050 --> 00:48:25.050
  • AND THEN, WHEN I WAS SINGING
  • 00:48:25.050 --> 00:48:27.180
  • WITH THAT OPERA COMPANY AND
  • 00:48:27.180 --> 00:48:29.100
  • TEACHING AT THE CONSERVATORY
  • 00:48:29.100 --> 00:48:30.240
  • THERE, I MET SOMEONE WHO WAS A
  • 00:48:31.170 --> 00:48:34.170
  • COMPOSER WHO COMPOSED AN OPERA,
  • 00:48:34.170 --> 00:48:37.040
  • A ONE-WOMAN OPERA, FOR ME, SO

  • THAT WORKED OUT BEAUTIFULLY.
  • 00:48:39.010 --> 00:48:41.110
  • SO CHRIST WAS WORKING IN SO MANY
  • 00:48:41.110 --> 00:48:43.040
  • DIFFERENT WAYS, EVEN BECAUSE I,
  • 00:48:43.080 --> 00:48:46.080
