        As defined within our "For What it's Worth" editorial, 0905, HOMERS are "Stay at Home Moms" or a retired "Keen Agers" and, as indicated therein, they are qualified to provide certain identified services.  
        Below is our view of how HOMERS function as they might remotely serve a small to medium sized Evangelical Church.  Please also understand how some of this can be done completely via the Internet.... see the web based application or "ASP" link.
