Dave, that reminds me of the time everyone thought using the com-pu-ter would enable them to work from home every day, exhibiting the endless possibilities of that old dream, virtual reality. The idea of a DVD supplanting church is ridiculous; the idea that "megachurches" would forsake their obligation of worship on Christ's birthday is quite another. This reminds me of a conversation I had once with an evangelical family member of a friend. When I asked her what denomination she was, she said "Just Christian. I don't like to get all caught up in the dogma." Far be it for me to criticize someone who found her faith, but isn't dogma important too, particularly, say, when it comes to attending church on Christmas?
