Live Chapel Webcasts To Begin Sept. 24; N.Y. Congressman Rescheduled To February

For the first time ever, Baylor University's traditional Chapel will be webcast live on the Internet, at 10 and 11 a.m. Monday, Sept. 24, in Waco Hall.

The webcast can be accessed at http://www.baylor.edu/Chaplain, then by clicking on "streaming." The entire production is student-run, from the video cameras to the streaming technology.

Stand-up comedian Robert G. Lee, who could not make his scheduled appearance on Sept. 19 because of travel difficulties, will perform during both Chapel gatherings on Sept. 24. Monday's scheduled speaker was U.S. Rep. Floyd Flake, who is unable to travel from New York to Baylor at this time. However, Flake has been rescheduled for February.

Known for his "clean" approach to comedy, Lee is considered the king of warm-up comedy before television show tapings. He is a veteran of more than 1,000 episodes of such shows as "Just Shoot Me," "Frasier," "Wings" and "The Drew Carey Show." He keeps countless audiences entertained between scenes and costume and set changes with rapid-fire ad-libs and humorous interviews.

Lee also recently completed writing, producing and starring in "Picture This," his fourth nationally released comedy video.

On Wednesday, Sept. 26, the Right Reverend Vashti Murphy McKenzie, the first woman elected bishop in the two-century history of the African Methodist Episcopal Church, will speak at 10 and 11 a.m. during Chapel in Waco Hall. Her "Denomination Day" appearance, which focuses on the Methodist tradition, also will be webcast live on the Internet.
