For over a year now I have only been able to go to church about once a month, but now even those once a month Sunday mornings are a thing of the past. It's sad. I love going to church. I love being with God's people, and I love hearing His Word preached.
It is so strange to realize that I am, for the most part, one of the shut-in church members now. If it weren't for Will (and other friends and family who take me out occasionally) I wouldn't be getting out at all. On a good day the farthest I go on my own is to the thrift store, which is just here on campus. (Yep, I keep my drivers license so that I can drive 1/2 a mile to the thrift store every once in a while!)
I'm not worried about starving spiritually. There are still a lot of things that I can do to ensure that I am learning and growing in my walk with Chirst. I read my Bible and pray. I learn a lot fromWill. I read books by different Christian authors. I have some seminary wives classes on DVD and MP3 that I can watch and listen to. I can listen to sermons online. I have Christain friends who build me up and encourage me in my faith. I certainly won't starve, but I do miss going to church regularly.
For my disabled friends, what do you do about church? How often can you go? And what do you do when you can't? I'd like to hear how some of you work around the physical limitations and how you still have fellowship with other belivers even while homebound/mostly homebound.
