Sophia Tulip has recently commenced a Bible Study as part of the Anglican Community in Second Life. She reports on the first meeting:
Last Sunday, October 21, 2007, I helped to facilitate the first bible study at the Anglican Cathedral’s parish house in Second Life.The scripture was Luke 18:1-8, The Parable of the Persistent Widow, and its theme, pray hopefully and constantly, is exactly what I did…pray hopefully and constantly for a good turn out.Since this was my first endeavor at hosting an event in SL, I had no idea what to expect, and so I was pleasantly surprised when more than two people showed up and at its peak we had ten participants.
Cady Enoch has been decorating the parish house and provided us with a warm atmosphere in which to conduct the bible study.We are using the circular room on the first floor and she furnished circular seating that keeps us all unified as a group.The response from the group was positive and the replies and remarks were helpful in the understanding of the scripture.
So, join us for a quick bible study and chat after the service at 11 a.m. SLT on Sunday, October 28, 2007.We will be reading Luke 18:9-14.The theme is aligning our hearts with our behavior.We will meet in the parish house, which is right next to the Anglican Cathedral.If you need a teleport or landmark, please IM me, Sophia Tulip.Epiphany Island, Epiphany (88, 147, 50)
