Ideally, we hope to be able to produce these “Roundtable” discussions roughly once a week, though time will tell whether we can actually achieve and maintain that pace. And we intend to produce them with a varying cast, so that different faithful voices and approaches are featured.
The technology that allows such discussions (between people, in tonight’s case, scattered across Utah Valley as well as New Mexico and northern Michigan) is relatively new, and it’s wonderful. Of course, because it’s relatively new we also had a few glitches (most of which, I think, had been settled before the recorded portion actually begins) and we’re going to be continually learning how to use it more effectively and how to incorporate additional useful features. But this, I think, represents a solid start.
I’m grateful to all who were involved. I hope that our audience will find it valuable.
