22:15 Channel 321 -- World Harvest Television

Hour of Power

Here we go, again. We already saw this program, but this is the beginning, not the end. It opens with Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring, but in English, which I hate.

We're gonna get sincere here for awhile.

Robert Schueller senior is talking now. I haven't seen him on TV in, maybe, 25 years. He's older, but he's also clearly had a minor stroke (or a minor palsy) -- his left eye doesn't open as wide as his right and his lips on that side don't curl the same.

Nice steppin' version of When the Saints Go Marching In crossed with The Hallelujah Chorus. This will end up being the high point of the service.

"The Hour of Power is not to be trifled with. Check out that building."
-- Special K

"I'm certain that when the saints finally do go marching in, it will be at the Crystal Cathedral."

The Crystal Cathedral [Johnson/Burgee architects, 1977-80] is, unlike other buildings b1 can name, in the Sourcebook of American Architecture by G.E. Kidder Smith: "The Crystal Cathedral has been criticized by some as being more theater than church, more didactic than questing... However, most worshippers...find it religiously welcoming and technically brilliant. For the casual visitor this high-tech glass tent is staggering."

I'm surprised you can write in anything other than 7/5. Oh, wait, that sentence *is* 7. Where's the 5?
