Virtual Church

September 24, 2005

ichatLast night, Kay & I joined the faith gathering at Rob and Angela’s home. From our home. We fired up iChat in audio mode. Rob put his computer in the middle of their room and wired up the sound to their amplifier so that our voices matched the group’s volume.

It was e-church as I have never experienced it before.

(And may I add that Rob & Ang are leading in a gutsy Solitonic direction: asking everyone to take turns leading the others in social justice exercises. Way to go!)

As an American missionary kid who grew up in Japan, I'm a child of two cultures, while not fully belonging to either. This gives me a sightly different view of the world.
