  2. Thanks Suzanne,

    My expectation is that the virtual world will eventually be delivered through a browser and therefore not so reliant on the power of the computer or the OS. It is likely that any future virtual platform will be a derivation of Second Life rather than SL as we know it becoming the actual platform.

  3. this recording provides an excellent inspirational message for online ministry.

    however

    missing is the recognition that Second Life itself is enhancing and enhancing itself so that more and more powerful computers are required in order to run it. We just got another computer in order to run my son’s favorite online game, World of Warcraft, better. This is because the computers we got in ’03 and ’05 cannot support it. Well, the Second Life software is getting so that it also cannot be supported by platforms that are 4+ years old. (note, I cannot run Second Life on that new machine because it is running on Vista, which doesn’t seem to be compatible with Second Life)

    It may seem strange that someone would want to be able to run software of today on a platform that old. Well, the concern is sourced from knowledge that countries formerly known as “3rd world” are not likely to have the latest computer technology. How will a ministry based on a super-duper hardware/software platform reach folks in outlying reaches of the world?

  4. Your sermon eloquently summs up how important this ministry is already, and I pray that your presentation at Pre-Lambeth is as effective. This ministry has begun to touch so many lives, I hope it can continue, and I will continue to do my best to help.
    In the end it is up to Our Lord to determine the fate of this or any other ministry. As a community, we can all pray “that we may delight in your will, and walk in your ways, to the glory of your Name.”

  7. How embarrassing, you quoted two of my responses!

    Very interesting to listen to though, and some good points raised. I hope we get some good stuff coming out of it.

  8. Mark –

    Any chance of a textual feedback? Finding 21 minutes uninterrupted is quite a challenge!

    -Mike.
