This is a really cool vintage ad that combines the telephone with the television. It’s like a hardware-based solution for Zoom back in the day. I am a big fan of retro-tech like this.
Reasons For Watching Church Online #episcopal
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.
Keeping The Faith Through The Miracle Of Technology
This past Sunday my priest delivered morning prayers on Facebook live in the place of our normal worship service which was canceled due to the Coronavirus. Many houses of worship are doing the same.
My religious study group Education for Ministry, did the same thing Monday. Via the web meeting service Zoom, we gathered together from 8 different places online to keep going. It truly is amazing how technology is bringing people together.
Fellowship is about gathering together and it was great to be able to do this to have a meaningful discussion about how we have been spiritually impacted by Coronavirus and to share how this is changing our worship experience. We also discussed our assigned readings on the book of Hebrews from The Bible.
I think this system of electronic gatherings is what will keep us together during these uncertain times. We have some members of the group who don’t need to be getting out and about. Gathering together in person is what we prefer but this is a great system to be sure we are checking in with one another and keeping safe.
