The First Sunday of ADVENT November 27, 2022

Sadly, this the First Sunday of Advent was fraught with technical difficulties. Much of what the people on Zoom could hear sounded like sickly chickens. For this we sincerely apologize and hope that Heath and I will be able to find the reason. This much we can tell you is that we have never run into THIS exact issue before.

We have done what we can for the website by cobbling together two videos from the pile of unusable, defective audio and questionable video. When it was obvious we were not going to be able to correct the issues during the service we deployed an iPhone as a back up. The resulting production is not up to the standards we have enjoyed recently.

The Rev. Dr. Regina Christianson, Celebrant and Preacher
The Offertory Anthem

Again, our apologies for not being able to share the complete service.
