Sandy and Harold Branam thought for years they were the only Quakers in town.

The couple had moved to Savannah in the early 1990s from Philadelphia, where they were among about 100 members of a congregation.

Once the Branams found their way to the Internet, they discovered Quakerfinder.org, which listed a small meeting in the home of a local member.

More than 10 years later, the Branams are among about a dozen members of the Religious Society of Friends, or Quakers, who meet every Sunday in a third-floor classroom at Trinity United Methodist Church on Telfair Square.

Seems to be a lot of conversation around this right now - in the church world specifically.  As I am still in the process of learning and growing in understanding for all of these things, here are some of my quick thoughts:

Last week at the National Pastors Convention in San Diego Shane Hipps sat down for a brief conversation with Christianity Today to discuss the concept of “virtual community.” You can view the video here. As a result of this clip there have been several folks who’ve pushed back on Shane’s point that virtual community is not authentic community but provides only a fraction of what face to face community provides. You can read discussions on the clip here, here, here, and here. So the video above is Shane’s response and clarification of his original point expressed on the Christianity Today clip.

If you haven’t checked out Shane’s new book, Flickering PIxels, to uncover more on this subject, check it out here.

We create media, and then media re-creates us. That's the message Shane Hipps, author of Flickering Pixels (Zondervan, 2009) wanted pastors at NPC to hear in his interview on the main stage last night and in his seminars this morning. Shane's latest book is a journey into the hidden power of media--and a challenge to the standard line that the message stays the same even when the medium changes.

Thanks for your video, Shane. Your point about not equating virtual community (grant me the term for the moment) with real community is one that needs to be heard. But, I'm not so sure it is this simple...
