Think of the internet as a sacred space…

Saturday, April 23rd, 2011

I prefer to think of the internet as a sacred space, a place where everything we do is under the watchful gaze of God.

It is already “religious”. Our business, therefore, is to use this space in a way that is consistent with our beliefs about God.

Doing so immediately shifts the focus from preaching about God (whether to believers or non-believers) to worshipping God (something we share with those who do not subscribe to our particular beliefs).

It enables us to be both supremely free and yet sensitive to others. Religious dialogue is often presented as an attempt to minimise difference, whereas true dialogue, of any kind, means clarity about one’s own position and respect for that of the other.
