Churches offering Sunday $ervices for short attention spans (great comments at URL!)

aha! see!
"Eastern Orthodox churches also have no plans to abbreviate their services, which can top more than two hours each Sunday.

"Services are meant to be spiritual; they're meant to be sensory; that takes time," said James Carras, a member of St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church in Fort Lauderdale. "When I go to church, it takes a while to get into the zone, to let go of business or how the Dolphins are doing. The liturgy helps guide you into that zone."

Not many comments but liked a couple. Drive up communion would seem like the next step.

Put the service on a podcast (subscription, of course) on your children's iPhone. Put the headphones on the kids while they're playing video games, and you and your partner go off somewhere for some "quality" time. The church gets their $$$, you get to "relax," and your conscience is assuaged knowing they heard something about Jesus while they're enjoying themselves slaughtering video representations of humans on an apocalyptic war game. Everybody wins!

Over the coming years, as church attendance continues to dwindle further, it will be interesting (comical?) to see what desperate acts churches will do to keep cheeks in their pews. 

I have a sneaky suspicion that as small church congregations die out because they can't afford to operate, the tenaciously religious members will be absorbed into larger churches.  I think we'll be seeing the rise of more mega-churches.  I also think more people will be willing to sit at home and watch televised services rather than travel a greater distance to some mega-church.  Television church won't just be for the "shut-ins."

there's still social dysfunction and kids that have no extended families.. say autistic.. flatscreen suckers.. perhaps they'll find non-religions:

but yay.. w/o parks rec.. they'll have mothers that falter
fathers that don't care.. they'll end up drawn' into a place of war'ship... USA's good at that...
?

Well you can have a drive-thru wedding and funeral, so why not a drive-through communion? lol.  At least you'd get a free cracker!

When it comes to religion, there's no such thing as a "free lunch" - with or without crackers.

LOL Melinda that cracked me up! Economical service!

@ Tammy, :)

hehe - you are so funny

drive through blessings and baptisms next !!

Starting to sound like a car wash!

Lol, drive-thru baptisms!
