Cade’s Story Behind the Video
“For this video I felt it necessary to show where I came from. No one has likely heard of Shelbyville Texas, or McClelland community church, but now the whole world gets to see a video of our little town! This is my literal church where I was baptized, a piece of dirt road my sisters and I used to run up and down to go see my granny. This video is East Texas. You can’t throw a rock without hitting a church and you can’t go anywhere without hitting a dirt road. I wanted most of all to show the process of coming to faith. Metaphorically, the truck is broke down, you can’t fix it and there is nothing you can do to make it work. So you depend upon someone else, namely Christ. This is a story of ridding oneself of works and merit and trusting solely in Christ and His merit. Leaving behind all to follow Him.” —Cade Foehner
