Introducing Karen Withem

Karen Withem has been a regular at Taizé worship services at CUCC for the past few years, but is not widely known more generally in the church. Recently Karen has agreed to serve on our Communications Committee, and many of you have seen her behind her camera helping film church events. (She helped with three major events so far, the Climate Rally on the church lawn on September 21, the Triangle Interfaith Alliance's Festival of Lights in the sanctuary on November 30, and the Christmas Eve service on December 24.)

Karen has a media company called Canyon Diamond Media. The website for Canyon Diamond Media gives clues into Karen's interests and skills. Please say "hello" to Karen when you see her, and thank her for all she is bringing to our church. Karen has a long background in the Los Angeles film industry, and I've had the pleasure of observing her at work on a recent independent film project in Raleigh. Suffice it to say that she brings to us a knowledge of film and production techniques that are unknown to this church. Welcome, Karen!
