The Vision of Anglicans of Second Life

One of the charges we received from the SL Anglican community in our recent survey was to more clearly define the vision and purpose of our group.  This is a matter that we in the Leadership Team have carefully discussed and prayed about.  The result of this is a revised vision statement which is now posted on our site under the menu item titled “Our Vision.”  We welcome your comments and feedback on this.
