Averaging everything out, do you think your church uses the right balance between video and live teaching?

Whether DVD or live steaming, do you think our conservative churches are leaning too much on video presentations?  We are assuming that the videos themselves are good quality both doctrinally and in format.  Or do quality videos abound and you think it good that the church uses them frequently?

Perhaps yours is a satellite church with a projected speaker from another location.  Why does this seem fine to you?

It goes without saying that it depends upon the specific church and perhaps the specific crowd.

Do you prefer your children being taught by live teachers who may use felt figures or pictures, for example, or do you prefer the kids watching a DVD Bible series?  Or do you prefer some of both?  

Do you prefer a woman's Bible study, for example, taught by video or by a teacher or some of both?

Whatever our preference level is, is your church at that level?  It is impossible to describe "the church" since most of us participate in only one church.  Even if we have been in several, there are many denominations/affiliations, local values, and differences between relatively similar churches.

That's why we are asking about your church -- or churches in which you have participated.

Comments appreciated. And you can relate stories of churches you have experienced that were, in your opinion, too much one way or another.
