It’s The Bishop!

No, you Python-heads, not in that way.  (Sheesh)

In “reality,” the Anglican Cathedral in Second Life had a visit from its Bishop, the Right Rev. Tom Brown of Wellington, New Zealand. The parish had been preparing for this stop-in, and there was a good turnout for him, some thirty avatars, according to the report from the Cathedral blog. (As I was at work yesterday, I couldn’t get to any service, in world or RL.) And, according to Cady Enoch on her Facebook page, our lay minister, Helene Milena, informed her RL bishop about Bishop Tom’s coming, and he decided he was going to drop in as well, totally unexpected! Add a curate on top of that, all greener than the new-mown virtual grass at using Second Life, and things got a little nerve-wracking for the cathedral team. But it came off swimmingly in the end.

If you’re of the mind, please visit the Cathedral blog link above, and you can read Bishop Tom’s homily, based around the history of the spread of Christianity in New Zealand and the message to be servants as well as leaders.  And, as always, you’re welcome to come and worship with us at one of our many services.
