Thanks for your insights Ebowalker.

This is a thought, but just off hand I'm not sure we're up to that honestly. Many here, including some admins and mods, value the anonymity of the board. We're also all volunteers, some with more time than others and frankly we're stretched a little thin (not criticizing anyone here, just pointing out that three of us have been carrying the majority of the load of late and we're all OK with that). I'm not sure any of us could commit. BUT, it doesn't have to be us - I don't think we would be opposed to a member organizing something like that on their own outside of here and whoever wants to come can come and whoever doesn't want to can choose not to.
It was nice to be heard. Believe me it’s tough for me to speak up. I will try to start more threads.

Just a correction re: zoom meetings, members can choose not to put video on and add any name they want so anonymity is not a problem.

But more than that was that exclusive decision early on to allow sacrament to be passed in only homes with PH in it. Can you imagine the Catholic Church only allowing a ritual in families with a male parent? The outcry would be deafening. Yet no one in our church thought there was anything wrong with it.
This brings up one of my musings. What would stop us from having a worldwide broadcast and during the broadcast have someone "bless" the bread and water that has been prepared in the individual homes by the individual members? I speculate that the church has evolved the sacrament as THE reason to attend church every week and the leadership is reluctant to loosen this tether.

We have all this technology, extensive links etc and during the pandemic it became apparent to me that the major reason for these technologies is PR. We could have done so much more.
