Participatory Church as Cyberchurch?

From “We know more than our pastors“, by Tim Bednar:
“After a year of blogging, I no longer seek to be “the” cyberchurch, as the name ”eChurch” implies, rather I participate with bloggers who collectively link the cyberchurch into existence. . . As believers use blogs for spiritual formation and organically form the cyberchurch, the memes we co-create are emerging from cyberspace and beginning to transform the traditional church. I believe this change will result in what may be called the “participatory church”. . .
The blogging cyberchurch is not a cathedral with set rules, processes or content, rather it is a bazaar that bloggers wonder around attempting to create order using hypertext.”


Andrew Jones has been blogging since 1997. He is based in San Francisco with his two daughters but also travels the globe to find compelling stories of early stage entrepreneurs changing their world. Sometimes he talks in the third person. Sometimes he even talks to himself and has been heard uttering the name "Precious" :-)
