- Watching a sermon? (I know I'd like to believe that's true since I'm the guy delivering the sermon). This could however be accomplished by TV or at least via a podcast.
- Singing? From my observation most folks aren't singing at church anyway, but if you're an exception you could still sing at home. You could even pick the music and sit and stand as you please!
- Giving? Online giving is an option (though some folks want to deliver the check as an act of worship just like Biblical times).
- The Lord's Supper? Now I'm sure you're thinking that here is the place where attendance is required. Really? I don't know about the church you're a part of, but most churches I'm familiar with make COMMUNION basically a private event...complete with indvidiuals in various forms of the holy fetal position around the room (errr... sanctuary) with mini-shot glasses (errrr....cups) & chiclets (errr... bread) in their hands with their eyes firmly closed in funerary contemplation. This goes off the same whether there are 2 or 200 people in the room.
- Prayer? Since only one guy usually prays I'm not sure how to handle this one. Most of the church prayers are generalities and fairly detatched from the lives of the people.
- Fellowship? If you mean walking by people in the hall or chatting briefly about the weather or football or American Idol then I could see where this would be difficult to do on your couch. But, honestly, fellowship is mostly non-existent in "church services" and we know it! We have about as much fellowship as people have at the movies - think about it.
That's what I'm talkin bout.
