BJS Newsreel — Streaming Media for the upcoming Conference this Friday/Saturday

NOTE: Updated information available here.


We felt with the number of people asking for conferences closer to where they are that it would be useful to our membership to have live audio streaming of the conference for those too far away to attend themselves.

We will stream the Friday evening banquet, but to listen to the Saturday presentations we ask for a $5 donation. The streaming with be 64kbs MP3 audio, and we’ll make it available on our website.

To help give us an idea of how many might listen live, please comment here or send us an email if you are going to plan on listening during the event.

It will still take us a few days to get the audios online after the conference.

About Norm Fisher

Norm was raised in the UCC in Connecticut, and like many fell away from the church after high school. With this background he saw it primarily as a service organization. On the miracle of his first child he came back to the church. On moving to Texas a few years later he found a home in Lutheranism when he was invited to a confessional church a half-hour away by our new neighbors.

He is one of those people who found a like mind in computers while in Middle School and has been programming ever since. He's responsible for many websites, including the Book of Concord,, and several other sites.

He has served the church in various positions, including financial secretary, sunday school teacher, elder, PTF board member, and choir member.

  1. Sign me up … I’ve been watching for this for a while now. Audio is great and would request that a move to stream both audio and video be considered in the future.

  2. I will plan to… and a check will be in the mail, next time I venture out. 🙂

    It’s overdue!

  3. What, no video for future playback? What will the brothers do at our next circuit meeting? 🙂

    Yes, the Lutheran Catechetical Society plans to be there and record the sessions and Service. DVDs should be ready within a few weeks. (Five”ish” hours of material will take a bit of time to edit and burn.) Watch for an announcement on BJS re: availability.
