I am watching the 1 MB flash stream of the 10:45 service. I am in Nashville on vacation. Because of recent illness with the kids, we opted to not attend church this morning, so I am watching parts of the service back home.
It’s odd. I am disconnected from the service by almost 700 miles. But I can see what is happening. Text people involved in the service and get responses. The ministry of the church is being extended through the internet. I can experience a degree of the worship there.
Of course, it’s not like being there. Nothing can replace gathering together with fellow believers in worship. But if you can’t be there, or are interested in the church but have not yet attended, you can get an idea, get a taste of the ministry and worship.
