Zoom Gathering Tonight!!

posted May 29, 2020, 12:15 PM by Ruthie Borrell

We did a Facebook Gathering last month which was a great success so this month - TONIGHT - some very smart people are going to present a ZOOM Gathering. The instructions to participate in this extravaganza are below. We look forward to getting together with the ability to actually see your Emmaus brothers and sisters. Looking forward to seeing you tonight!!

Friday’s UPDATE…. And it’s a big one….. READ IT..NO FOLLOW-UP for Walk 143.

The Gathering continues to develop as planned.   Arrival time if you want to visit some should be 7 or so.  The official part starts at 7:30 .  Come visit with all your friends before we mute the microphones and start Gathering.


THE CHANGE IS….. NO FOLLOW UP TONIGHT.   See that.   The correct information getting out is the FOLLOW UP IS POSTPONED.   But that doesn't mean that the pilgrims and team of Walk 143 should not participate in this ZOOM Gathering tonight.

That decision was made last night.   Those working to help this to happen wanted to wait to make the followup a richer experience.     So past the word far and near.


As for the Gathering tonight.   Here are a few tips.   This are more applicable to laptops and desktops than tablets and phones.   The same features are on tablets and phones but each phone and table do a it a little different.   So know these features are there, you just have to hunt for them a bit by sliding between screens like  sliding between pictures.

So on a computer, there is a menu of choices.  One set of these choices are across the bottom.  Move your cursor down to the bottom and you will see them.

From left to right, is microphone and then video.   Click on either and your turn it on or off.   

Then towards the middle, is “Participates” and “Chat”.   Both of these help you see who all is there.   Click on participants and you get a side bar listing of everyone there.    

The Chat icon will show when someone has sent a text message.  It might be just to you or it might be to everyone.   Click the chat icon and you will get a side bar posting as well.     At the bottom of that side bar you will see where you can type in a message.  It goes to everyone or to someone privately.   Be aware of who it is going to as you use this feature.    If you click on name in the participants lists you can choose to send them a message.

Another quick lesson on a feature is in the upper right corner.   There is a series of little block.  Those will let you define how you want to see all.   Gallery view, all the little boxes, allows everyone to be in little boxes across several pages of our meeting.   When someone speaks in gallery view, their block lights up, just like “Hollywood Squares”.  

Another view has a big box and a little box.   That one is called Speaker View.   In this view, you will see who is speaking in a big 2/3 page size window with all us other folks in our little boxes.   This is best when watching/listening to our leaders share their parts.   If you want to see everyone else there, you slide over to the other screens, just like scrolling through pictures.

OK.. that’s the quick lesion for today.   REMEMBER NO FOLLOW UP TONIGHT

Here is the invite link for tonight.   We will be there early, come early and visit yourself.

Cya tonight.
