I was trying to schedule a time for my new biz team to come to the office on Sunday to finish a proposal. We were trying to work around church services when Jeniece said, “don’t worry about me, I go online. My favorite church is in Atlanta.” Online? She attends church online?
It turns out that even churches have adopted new media, and in a big way (why am I surprised by this?). After doing a bunch of Google searches, I realized that not only have many churches created extensive Web sites, many now have sermons and readings online, and yes, many now stream services live.
A popular aggregator site is Streaming Faith. I am blown away by this site. You have to register but it’s free and once you login, a whole world is available to you. Every day and every hour, you can watch live streams of services; you can listen to podcasts; you can watch pre-recorded sermons; you can make a donation online to your favorite church; and you can watch music videos. You can even browse a list of ministers and ministries. The videos are streamed using Windows Media Player and you will be amazed at the quality of the video.
Even if you aren’t religious, aren’t Christian or don’t attend church, this site is noteworthy and worth a look.
