At the end of October we posted a quick video to our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram page with a simple idea. We asked our fans to pick a line from the song "Lift Up My Eyes", write it down on a sign, and film themselves holding it in whatever part of the world they're from.
Little did we know that we'd get nearly 400 videos sent in from all over the world, and two weeks of editing and trying to keep track of all the locations in a spreadsheet, we released the video.
What started a simple idea to make a fun clip ended up being much more than we expected! In a time where the news is full of doom and gloom, and social media is rife with arguments and negativity, it was so good to see the church around the world so full of joy, worshipping God together through a simple video. It really fit the message of the song well, which is all about lifting up your eyes to God in times of difficulty. It makes you think bigger when you see people from all around the world being so happy!
