I enjoyed R. Scott Clark's rather cerebral blog post on offerings with respect to the Regulative Principle of Worship (RPW). I tend to agree that they are a circumstance, not an element. I do not see any problem omitting them entirely from the service, particularly as they tend to become an uncomfortable silence that must be filled by entertainment, normally in the form of musical performance.
