As Pastor of Resurrection Online, I hope to help build a Christian community online where non religious and nominally religious people are becoming deeply committed Christians. A key to this purpose is building community. There has been a good deal of conversation about whether there can be authentic Christian community online, so how about a bit different question.
The 2008 Book of Discipline of The United Methodist Church indicates that “The members present and voting at any duly announced meeting shall constitute a quorum.” (¶246.6) If Resurrection live streamed our church conference, had a member login and people could vote, would that count? Is that even the right question?
I go back and forth about my own response to this question. Will you please share your thoughts, feelings or opinions about this topic?
