Reflections on our first live worship broadcast
It was not MGM nor even NBC, but it was SCUCC on the air! A month ago, I would not have predicted that we could put a service out electronically. Two weeks ago, I was kicking and screaming (privately) about the possibility of going "on the air." It was not nearly as painful as I thought it might be. I just had a picture in my mind of TV preachers, and I was not eager to become one.
The two gentlemen who joined me Sunday morning on the Ministry Team were perfection and the Production Team was a calming and encouraging influence. Without them this could not have happened. I am so grateful to, in alpha order, Mike Carr, Ron Holm, Debra Phillips, Duane Phillips and Tom Stein.
A church is not the pastor. The church is more than two teams coming together for a purpose. The church is all of us and YOU. The building seems hollow without you, the sanctuary seems extra big without you. I look out at the empty chairs and remember the gentle folk who usually sit there, and I thank God for each of you. Until you fill the sanctuary with your presence and your spirit again, know that you are missed. Tune in as Adventures in Ministry continues!
