Did any of you catch Bob Hyatt's article, Virtual Church is STILL a Bad Idea? I must say, my own experience leaves me inclined to agree. Virtual conversation can compliment real community, but it can't substitute it. Virtual conversation can open up new possibilities, but those possibilities becomes most crystalized in face to face communion. I say this having met up with a few "facebook friends" in the flesh only last week. Meeting in the flesh is not equivalent to meeting in cyberspace, it's far better.
