Kyle Lewis missed going to church one Sunday last month. But he did not miss the sermon. Mr. Lewis, who regularly attends services of the National Community Church in Alexandria, Va., listened to the sermon while he was at the gym, through a recording he had downloaded to his iPod. Instead of listening to the rock music his gym usually plays, he heard his pastor’s voice. [NYTimes.com]

This just makes so much sense to me. I can’t believe every church isn’t doing this. Back in my radio days, the local churches paid to get air time and had to fight for it at that. I look for lots of applications like this. Literally every meeting will be recorded and made available online. School board meetings, chamber of commerce meetings…whatever.
