Probably worth mentioning that the largest of all the large megachurches, Lakewood Church in Houston, immediately moved to livestream services back in the second week of March.

But, that all said, you’re correct that none of the source documents of any faith elevate a congregational service and make it the focal point of worship.

But, I’ve tried to make this point to my Christian friends agonizing over a missed Easter and it bounces right off. The idea that the sunday service, and especially the christmas and easter services, are fundamental requirements of faith die hard.
