Virtual communion in a virtual world?

Last night, after posting my thoughts on our relationship with virtual realities as explored in Fox’s Virtuality, I ran across a tweet on Twitter pointing to a very interesting conversation in the virtual bloggy world about virtual sacraments (communion). It all starts with a short paper by Professor Paul Fiddes on Mark Brown’s blog and continues over at Liturgy with Bosco Peterson’s response. Some interesting thoughts and responses are also to be found in the comments of each blog. While for some this may seem like a ridiculous exploration, I find it yet another opportunity to examine what it means to be human and walk with God in the midst of this kind of technology. Interesting stuff.
