|We did it! It worked!
“Loved it.” “Wow!” “Amazing.” “So proud.”
And… “I felt so connected.”
The feedback keeps rolling in. Our grand experiment – forced by these times (and loooong-overdue) – worked. After months of research, learning, acquiring equipment, training, experimenting, and more learning, we launched our very first, official, First UU Live-stream. And, it was a fabulous success.
THANK YOU to everyone who helped, especially Billy Davidson, Andi Morcharski, and Brian Hagemann. They have put in hours and hours and hours to make live-stream a reality. Along the way, they’ve also added T-loop in the sanctuary, Slowter Lounge, and Beach Hall. Plans include adding multi-platform capability to the Library and a classroom.
Thank you also to everyone who helped us experiment, including those of you who tuned-in on Sunday. Your feedback was so supportive and welcomed. Keep on, keeping on.
This week, we are making a few adjustments to make the experience even better. And, we’ll keep tweaking and learning. A new remote control for slides this week, a new camera angle coming soon, added content, picture-in-picture, etc. Once you get started and folks say YES!, we just keep getting better.
Don’t you just love it when WE are living into the best of what we can be. By adding additional ways to join our services (events, meetings, etc.), we are leaning into connection and being truly accessible. In turn, our First UU community becomes a more interconnected web, adding more depth and texture to our diversity and experiences. This is a gift for all of us. It also helps First UU live into its flagship status and be a leader of liberal religion and values in Columbus and beyond.
I am so proud of everyone.
See you Sunday on live-stream or at church,
🙂 Rev. Marian
