The Top 10 Reasons to Attend Online Church

By Tim Schenck

  1. You can wear your PJs to church.
  2. Drink coffee DURING the sermon to stay awake.
  3. Hungry? Don’t wait for coffee hour. Grab that donut RIGHT NOW!
  4. Every Sunday is the Blessing of the Animals.
  5. Bad hair day? Who cares!
  6. You can scroll through Facebook during the “boring parts.”
  7. La-Z-Boy > Uncomfortable pew.
  8. Seven year itch? “Cheat” on your pastor by tuning in to another church’s service without even breaking one of the 10 Commandments!
  9. No kneeling. Or standing, for that matter.
  10. Keeping connected to God and your community during this unprecedented time.

The Rev. Tim Schenck is rector of St. John the Evangelist Church, Hingham, Massachusetts, and creator of Lent Madness.
