Interesting. I think this begs a question about the nature of community within an online/virtual Church campus. We all know that community can form online. The question is this: what kind of community is it? Is it partial community that never materializes? If we follow a God who chose to self-reveal by incarnation, “in the flesh,” what are we to think about a virtual community that never incarnates?

Matt – I think that you raise a great point. I am taking by the nature of your question that you are not sure if it is a good thing if a virtual community that seeks to be church never incarnates. I would agree with you.

How that looks becomes a bit more interesting in an internet campus. Definitely a question I will address in a few weeks.
