Rev. Ken Klaus, speaker of The Lutheran Hour addresses the congregation in Stony Plain, Alberta and Internet viewers in Edmonton and Winnipeg
STONY PLAIN, Alta. – Despite some initial technical difficulties, Lutheran Church–Canada (LCC) in cooperation with St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church sent a live video stream across the Internet Sunday. The live feed came from a Lutheran Hour rally that featured the speaker of The Lutheran Hour, Rev. Ken Klaus.
The church, which is equipped with a camera and sound equipment, sent the signal through a wireless Internet connection to www.ustream.tv, an online streaming service. Viewers of the test saw and heard the service as it unfolded in Alberta. “With any test there are some technical aspects that you discover along the way,” noted Ian Adnams, LCC’s director of communications. “I think we can move in this direction more intentionally and provide video resources which anyone anywhere can watch at home.”
LCC is currently investigating the possibility of providing live video streaming of President Robert Bugbee’s installation service, Sunday, September 28 at 6:30 p.m. (ET).
