Not sure if it's related or not - but seems to be the same.
That being said, here's an update now that worship is over:? The other staff member's ipad ended up having the same behavior as mine.? We tried both our wifi network and over 3G.? So, I proceeded to use my backup plan by reading the sermon notes from the Pages app.? At 11:00, right as worship started, I decided to check my iPad one more time.? It loaded, and I was able to use it as intended.? Later I talked to the staff member, who said that his started working right around that time too.? So, it worked out this time.
