Immediately before lunch, the delegates stood in the auditorium for this group picture, which I took while standing in the balcony.
The campus is hilly and provides lots of excellent (several steep) slopes, but the problem was getting the photographer high enough in front of the group. Thanks to John Van Dyk, my editor at Christian Renewal, for coming up with this great strategy that allows viewers to see faces more clearly.
It was picture day in other ways for me. I enlisted the assistance of Michael Kearney, who as a teenager is inherently more technology savvy than I am. Looking for away to post a photo stream of Synod pictures online, we set up a flicker account, but have experienced some problems making it visible to the public. We’re working on making it more accessible.
Because I focused too much on that, I fell behind in my regular reporting, so I’ll be working feverishly today to catch up.
In the meantime, here are more Synod pictures for your enjoyment.
