Bishop to Lead February 25 Live Streamed Presentation
The url for the live stream will be:
On Saturday, February 25 from 10 a.m.- noon, churches across the conference are encouraged to gather to watch a live streamed presentation entitled, “Holy Conversations/Tough Issues” hosted by the Unity Committee of the TAC Core Leadership Team. Event Flyer and Leader Guide (PDF)
Under the leadership of Bishop Scott Jones, the Unity Committee members include Rev. Lance Richards, District Superintendent Morris Matthis, Lay Leader John Esquivel, Connie Fowler, Rev. Nathan Bledsoe, and Reggie Clemons, and Communication Director Paula Arnold. This event is designed to inform members of our conference about the latest news regarding judicial rulings and the Commission on a Way Forward but more importantly to promote conversation and interaction about the tough topics that are threatening to create disunity in our Church. Bishop Jones looks forward to feedback on what insights were gained and how participants respond to this type of communication at the local church.
There will be a follow-up Facebook Live session planned for March 16, 2017 at 7 pm to address any questions that may arise and to share experiences from the local church gatherings.
Test your system by watching a few live videos on Ustream in advance:
at: http://www.ustream.tv/explore/all (Several of these listed are choosing not to stream audio, so check through several of them if there is no audio playback.)
You can only watch a live stream if you have a consistent internet connection. Shared wi-fi networks, like what you might find at a coffee shop, are often too unreliable to view a live stream without interruption. As a baseline, to view an 720/HD stream, you need download speeds at around 1.5-2Mbps. When viewing the video full-screen, you can adjust the quality level of the stream if you are having bandwidth issues:
You can run a speedtest here to determine your download speed. It can be helpful to run the test several times to see if you are getting consistent download speeds.
When possible, plugging in via an ethernet cable can help you avoid the possibility of an inconsistent wireless connection.
