A GREAT GOOD PLACE FOR THE THEOLOGICAL COMMUNITY [new 4/96]

Dale's own studies on Theological Implications of the Internet are offered in progress, and a sizeable number of links to related sites are given, as well as experimentation in online hypertext relating of his personal journey from a theological perspective. To be a community in this new media age, we need to recover the idea that the church can be and provide one of those places which Oldenburg calls a "third place" in his book, "A Great Good Place". In a world where electronic communication has thus far aided to reduce the number of these "third places", we may see in online, Computer Mediated Communications a chance to pull the elements of community back together, and draw us closer together. Here we might re-learn the value and the wonder of the riches we have to offer one another, and provide a place where we can discover that there is indeed much to "encounter" in the space where two or more are gathered. May we recommend the vision: a "Great Good Place". Be a part of what's being done to develop Community here on the internet.

"... So, where does this road take us? Well, the first three stops along the highway can be seen in our rear view mirror - they are all in the past. We have sinned.

There's one more stop along this highway: belief. Maybe that part isn't so easy for you? Join the crowd! It certainly took me a long time. But, is there any greater question than where are you going to spend eternity?" Rick Abshier presents a thoughtful and concise look at Calvinism and the Reformed faith.
