Today I listened to my former professor, Doug Estes, discuss the virtual church on the Paul Edwards Show (listen here). Formerly, I have considered virtual church to be a possible supplement to what Doug calls the “brick-and-morter” church, but I found this interview very convincing that church in a virtual world (or through means of the virtual world) can be as legitmatly church as anything with which we are familiar.

Have you thought much about virtual ecclesiology? If so, do you have any thoughts on the matter?

If not, I recommend visiting the website of Doug’s book where you can find a list of virtual churches to visit as well as a wealth of additional information on the subject. That can be accessed here.
