#1: we’re starting and ending earlier than we have in previous years.
Rather than a Friday evening kick-off, Narrow will begin Friday after lunch. Especially if you are planning to fly, you may want to arrive Thursday evening so you don’t miss a moment of our time together.
We will also conclude on Saturday before dinner. This will allow some of you more turnaround time to get home or get back to your church/family for Sunday. For others of you who have more flexibility in your travel plans, this will allow you more time to be together: either with the group you’re coming with or the new friends you make at the conference before you head home.
#2: expect more workshopping this year.
The two things the pandemic has limited us the most in are in-person community + conversation – so because the best thing about SWHW is what we can learn from each other, we’re making maximum room at Narrow to prioritize those. Community groups are back, of course. And we can’t wait to hear from speakers like Jordan Raynor and Nicole Warren (and Somer and Michelle!) and worship with Biltmore Worship in the big room similar to past years. One new addition: this year, we’re also introducing break-outs! Registered attendees will have an opportunity soon to sign up for a breakout with Audra Haney, Alonda Tanner, Lauren Diggs or Liz Patton – more details to come
#3: there will be precautions so we can gather.
As for the current state of the world: we have been + will continue making decisions with counsel from trusted medical professionals. We will do everything we can to safeguard your health during our time together and encourage you to pray for and use wisdom for yourself/your family.
We will make official decisions as for what our protocols will look like closer to our time together, but be assured of the above: our goal is to have precautions so there can be a gathering. Being together is our priority – even if it can’t look at “normal” as we’d hoped. We saw first hand last year that there’s no precaution that limits what God can do when His daughters come together.
We love you!
Rooted in Him and rooting for you,
the SWHW team
