Context for “backstage setup”. We had to elevate the laptop (my iPhone 7-Plus) to get better bluetooth reception. The VGA cable wasn’t very long.

Context for where the screen is.

More context. One chair stacked upside down on another chair.

Audio-visual booth (center, with open door) in back left corner, next to the cry room.

 

My lavaliere microphone falls apart (that’s never happened to me in 18+ years speaking) one minute before i am supposed to speak.

As Father Benjamin is finishing my brief intro, Jordan is frantically trying to repair the microphone.

All i hear in slow-motion is, “Please – welcome – Jeff – Noel.”

A second or two later Jordan (AV tech) says, “There, it’s fixed.”

i run from the back, down the middle aisle (wich was the plan from the start), genuflect, step up “onstage” and begin.

About 30 seconds in, i realize my presentation slide clicker isn’t working,

Dear Son, did you catch how i resisted the obvious and natural human response to panic and melt-down?

Internet's only five-a-day blogger, leaving a trail for our son. This is about putting the spirit of Love at the center of your life. It may be God, Allah, Mohammed, Buddha, Yahweh, etc. For me, it's Jesus.
