It was deeply moving to lead the first Anglican service in Second Life. I had tears in my eyes as we concluded the service;
partly due to the fact that I had just typed a 20 minute sermon…
The plan had been to stream the whole service including the sermon. So those attending listened to the service and either responded via text or vocally in their setting. This went reasonably well until the sermon.. which was too quiet to hear. So I then decided to type the sermon!!
We have much to learn from this first experience but let me assure you that I have an even stronger sense that the church has a place in SL.
I praise God for this first attempt and look forward to glorifying Him through future services.
A particular thanks to Crystalpalace and IanMichael for all last minute support!!
PS I will post video of the service soon!
