* Tony and Lisa Yuscius have been friends of mine for years. They’re just good, solid people and a great couple. I cannot say enough positive things about them.
As a public service, their company BlueRoomStream.com (click here to subscribe) has been providing free video access to Gov. Pritzker’s daily briefings during the crisis.
And now this…
In the spirit of public service, BlueRoomStream is offering four different worship services/sermons on Easter Sunday, lifting its usual paywall so all can safely observe the Christian holiday from their homes.
Tony Yuscius, president of parent company Advanced Digital Media, said he was inspired by a reporter’s question about Easter worship during a stay-at-home order that was asked at one of Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s daily COVID-19 press conferences. The popular public affairs streaming platform is currently offering free coverage of the governor’s daily press conferences in the absence of Illinois legislative committee hearings and House and Senate floor action.
“Like many people, I want to do something that is of real help during this pandemic,” Yuscius said. “My wife, Lisa, told me, ‘You have the means to do that, so do it.’”
Yuscius contacted one of his subscribers, the Catholic Conference of Illinois, for help in reaching out to a diversity of Christian denominations.
The result is four different services/sermons that will begin streaming on BlueRoomStream on Sun., April 12 at different times. Each worship option will remain available on the platform after its initial broadcast time. No password will be needed to view the worship offerings.
The following worship services/sermons can be viewed at www.BlueRoomStream.com on Easter Sunday:
6 a.m. Roman Catholic Easter Mass, Cardinal Blase J. Cupich, Archdiocese of Chicago
10 a.m. Easter Sermon, Bishop Jeffrey D. Lee, Episcopal Diocese of Chicago
