Wednesday, August 26, 1998--
The article, by a staff reporter, was about the expanding use of cyberspace by clergy and churches, which the Globe refers to, and seems to view positively, as "the new spiritual frontier." The article included a black and white picture of "yours truly" seated at my computer in my church office. As I believe, and as the article reflects, the Internet is becoming an increasingly important medium for the spread and nurture of religious faith, for all kinds of people in our modern society. And I believe we are now only at the beginning of this important use, and only at the beginning of realizing its great possibilities.
