PBS Religion & Ethics turns focus to Anglican Cathedral in Second LIfe

As many of you know, I am part of the community at the Anglican Cathedral in Second Life. I've led a Bible Study there and have read in Book of Common Prayer services. I also belong to a Bible Study of the Anglican Ecumenical Society, which is affiliated with the Anglican Cathedral. Being part of the community has opened my circle up to Anglicans and Episcopalians from around the world.

When I was at General Convention, I demonstrated the Anglican Cathedral in Second Life to many raised eyebrows. But attending the services and especially the times of prayer were very important to me while I covering General Convention. One of the people I talked to - who's eyebrow wasn't quite as raised - was Kim Lawton of PBS' Religion & Ethics. I was surprised when she didn't quickly dismiss it, but I had no idea that there would be follow-up.

If you'd like to learn more about Anglicans in Second Life, feel free to drop me a note or comment below. Saturday's at 1:30 p.m. "SL Time" (which is California Time) we have our weekly Bible Study sponsored by the Anglican Ecumenical Society. We've just started studying Ephesians. If you'd like to come, let me know. I am happy to help you learn how to navigate through Second Life. If you all ready know your way around SL, send me an IM in SL - I'm ZoeRose Eiren.
