I hope this positive use of contemporary technology by at least one diocese may mark a new step up into the new millennium for our church. For example, since the meeting of General Synod Te Hinota Whanui next week, is open to the public, why not web stream the important discussions that will happen there. Light a virtual candle and pray for the events around today here.
Here is an interview with Justin Duckworth for those of you who have not yet seen it:
