As a church-going type person, I have sat through many digital worship services in these days of COVID19. Currently, my parish is meeting outdoors in-person to keep people connected yet safe. YouTube and Zoom have been instrumental in keeping many churches going and offering their parishioners the Word and Sacraments.
This graphic is a humorous take on watching church online. I do like the no parking, coffee, and relaxing in my pajamas but I would never ever mute my priest. He’s pretty good at sermonizing and that sort of thing.
No matter how you practice your faith I hope you have found a way to stay connected and to receive blessings from your spiritual community.
YouTube is a great place on the web but like anything you see on the Web you have to take with a grain of salt. In this time of pandemic you have to do your research and not let a video tell you something that might require more information. What we want to be true might not be what is factual. Be wary my friends. Accuracy is the difference in life and death these days.
This Easter morning was a different one. Instead of gathering at church for worship it was watching via YouTube. Many churches have celebrated in a similar way. For me it was good to have a shared experience with other believers who are doing the same. For many this is a time of life defeating death. Thanks to technology this is possible and it seems to have more meaning in this time of pandemic. My priest and the staff at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Chattanooga, TN have done great work in this new normal we are going through.
This is a parody/satire site on Facebookand YouTube that pokes a little fun at those short cooking videos you see on social media. You will find this to be both funny and snarky in equal measure. You can also find them on Twitter.
