Attending Church in Bad Weather

Do you feel like church is a big part of your life? Perhaps you have been going once a week for as long as you can remember, ever since you were a young child, and you cannot imagine giving it up. Your faith gives you the strength that you need to take on the challenges in your life and it allows you to focus on something that is bigger than yourself. It helps you see the world in a positive light. It shows you how you should live. These are great things that can form the pillars of your life, but it can be hard to get to church in the winter because the weather can prevent it.

In some places, it snows for five or six months on end. You can wake up and find a fresh foot of snow on the ground, making all of the roads impossible to use. You may not even be able to get out of your driveway. Ice and slush could put your very life in danger. This is especially true as you get older. You do not want to take these risks, but you also do not want to give up on church until the summer because it is such a big part of your life. What should you do?

There are a few options that you can use. For one thing, some churches will record all of their services on a DVD or they will make an audio recording, and then they will distribute those to people who request it, people who could not make it to the service. You may end up listening to the service or watching it a few days late, but you still get the full impact of it.

Another option is to use live streaming services. Many churches that used to record services 10 years ago have now found that it is easier and more convenient just to stream those videos on the Internet. You can connect your computer right to your television, relax on the couch, and watch the service as it happens. You get to keep the schedule that you are used to, and you get to fit the church experience into every Sunday, regardless of the bad weather outside.

  1. Love your writing Sharon! Thumbs up! It’s pretty disappointing when someone wake up in the morning and find roads unusable in front of the house.
