Second Life is a virtual world that has been around since 2003. Here it is at the end of 2009 and I have never tried it out. Well, I can now check this online app off my todo list.
The only reason I decided to try it out was because I knew that LifeChurch.tv has a campus online. They have built an amazing environment online. I did not interact with anyone because no worship services were taking place at the moment. The building was completely empty. It was neat to be able to walk around the children’s environment and even walk up on stage. I was able to purchase a virtual Mountain Dew from a vending machine.
There you go. I tried it. I get why there are people in this world that play in this online fantasy world. It ain’t for me. At the same time, I realize that there is a generation that does get this type stuff and we have to try and understand how to reach through the noise and tell them about Jesus.
I’ll probably uninstall the player and delete my “resident.”

Is anyone else playing Second Life and actually enjoy it?
