It was a busy day at the front of the church...
Four things were happening simultaneously in the front part of the church today (the "chancel" area for those of you who like church words!):
Way up high on the scaffolding you can see a silhouette of Christopher, Jim Harvey's son. Just above him, you can see the beginnings of the new stained glass window! Christopher is helping his dad and Jim Erickson with the installation. Good thing, too, because those glass panels are heeeaaaavy!
To your left, installed, and to your right, going up, you can see the new organ grille fabric! No more sagging, dirty fabric over those organ pipe chambers on either side of the chancel area. Over time the fabric does collect dirt, so the new fabric color was chosen to match well with the color of the wooden beams as well as to hide dirt!
In the foreground in the above photo, Brian and his assistant are checking out the pew spacing for the chancel area. All the koa pews are now back in their proper places!
And, last but not least, the sound folks from Audissey were busy putting in the new sound system. More to come on that in a future email!
Rays from the cross, a touch of rock, and a ti plant rising!
So how did that stained glass get way up there??!!
