Writing Story About How Home-bound Individuals Use Internet to Experience Church

Hi all,

Thank you for welcoming me into your space. I'm a writer currently doing a story about ways in which religiously observant home-bound individuals experience church and synagogue services. Specifically, I'm wondering if shut-ins, rather than tuning in to nationally televised church services, would prefer watching video streams of the personal services they attended before becoming home-bound. This would make sense to me -- they would see familiar faces, favorite ministers, hear prayers about their own community, etc. But so far, it doesn't seem like many churches (aside from mega-churches) offer video streams of services for the home-bound, and I wondered why.

If anyone out there has any insight on this and would like to share their personal story, or would otherwise like to see their church start doing this, please feel free to e-mail me at johnhtucker@gmail.com.

Many thanks, John

Anyway ... this sounds like a good idea. I'll run this by my wife, who is more involved than I [surprise!].
