As most of you are probably aware, the 2008 Lambeth Conference of the Anglican Communion is quickly approaching. Please keep all of the conference participants in your prayers as they meet to talk, and listen to, one another and work to build bridges across our global community.
All those attending Lambeth will be provided with a copy of a pamphlet that was prepared during the recent “Web 2.0 and the Church” meeting in the Diocese of Guildford, UK, which was attended by several members of the Anglicans in Second Life community. We also understand that a breakout workshop on this theme is being planned for the conference participants (details to come as they become available*). Exciting stuff! If you are so inclined, we encourage you to share your experiences of our virtual community with your local bishops, and urge them to take advantage of the opportunity to learn more about it, either through this blog, or in person at Lambeth. It is our hope that as the word spreads about our ministry in Second Life, we will have more opportunities in the future to expand this work and glorify God in Second Life.
There will be a breakout session (called a “Fringe Session”) on “Web 2.0 and the Church.” It will be held on Saturday, 26 July, from 8:00 to 10:00 p.m. at Keynes LT 6, University of Kent, Canterbury.
