He is Risen!

And the angel answered … Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. — Matthew 28:5-6

Las Posadas at Cayo

Posadas 2014

My turn came up this year last Friday for the Anglican Cathedral’s Posadas, and I played host again to the Holy Family at my island.  Several people visited, and I took one on a tour of the space station while he was there.  (He enjoyed it a lot, despite it being several hundred years ahead of his preferred time period, 1928 Berlin.)  The statues have technically moved on for the year, but I’ve hung on to copies for my own use.  Any who would like to visit through December 24 are welcome.  However, I’d also encourage you to follow the travels of the “actual” Holy Family by joining the Anglicans of Second Life group.  Notices are posted most days on where the Posadas statues will be bound to, and all are welcome to participate in the rites, as well as share fellowship.

¡Sí, la posada tiene espacio!

I am once again hosting the Holy Family for a day and a night during the Anglican Cathedral’s Advent Posada pilgrimage.  If anyone would care to stop by, the statues will be at my Oasis Hospitality Floor until 11:00 a.m. SLT on December 13.  Follow the SLurl.  There will be refreshments available on a side table.  (Please watch your step, as this is over 700 meters up; I’m not responsible if you take a header off the side from too much Guinness.  You may also want to wear a coat.)

Quick Look: A Royal Wedding Day

Here we are, and William and Kate are now Their Royal Highnesses, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge!  Throngs have cheered, the kids have kissed on the balcony of Buckingham Palace, and I’ve retired to a side chapel for a little quiet time and some quick photos before going home.

When you’re attending a wedding, the idea is to look stylish, but not to outshine the bride.  This tulip print dress by Reale (available on the Marketplace) is a nice spring/summer choice for a wedding day; not too much prim load, so that the bride can have all the good cycles to herself, and yet graceful, flowing and with the promise of tulips in the breeze.  The halter neckline has a bow in back for the final touch.

Your accessories should also be understated yet elegant.  EarthStones tennis suite of bracelet and necklace in champagne-toned diamonds and gold are excellent here.

(Incidentally, if you’re wondering at the different appearance for myself here, I’m in a Japanese mood lately; I’m doing my “Keiko” character.  I’ve lost the maker for both the skin and the hair, but I’ll insert them when I get a better chance.)

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.

Leadership Team Report August 2010 (via The Anglican Cathedral of Second Life)

It’s been a while since I’ve had anything of large substance to say about the Anglican Cathedral in Second Life. My last piece on them was about the “wild” garden outside the close, back in July.

The Cathedral team has plenty to say themselves, though. Here is their leadership report for this month, at their blog:

Leadership Team Report August 2010 Things have moved slowly in our deliberations since I last reported. I suppose it happens when many in the northern hemisphere are at a time of taking summer breaks. I had hoped to be able to publish the results of the survey from last year but that is not yet possible. All I can do is apologise and hope I can soon post the information. The new developments around the sim have been well received. We had a commissioning service, reported on earlie … Read More

The Diversity of the Anglican Cathedral

Evening prayer at the Meditation Chapel

I’m an occasional participant in the services at the Anglican Cathedral in Second Life on Epiphany Island.  With an excellent set of volunteer leaders, we have services of prayer and meditation for most of the standard “hours” of the ecclesiastical day.

This photo shows the diversity of our community, sitting in for evening prayer at the Meditation Chapel down the hill from the Cathedral.  As you can see, we respect all comers, no matter gender, ethnicity…or, apparently, species!
