Church (U.S.A.) The Presbyterian Church has been an innovative leader in computer
networking for more than ten years. At its headquarters in Louisville, KY, is
located the world's largest ecumenical computer network, Ecunet. While the Presbyterian
Church is new to the World Wide Web, behind these pages lies a much larger story
of some real pioneers in cyberspace.
This is the website of the network previously mentioned and located at the headquarters
of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.).
Information Center This site is the God child of a Catholic business executive
and philanthropist, James S. Mulholland. When the Pope visited the U.S. last year,
he toured the office where the servers for this site are located and learned of
CICI's plans to build a home page for every Catholic diocese in the world, thus
reaching a potential congregation of wired Catholics running into the millions.
Online This is one among a number of "unofficial" sites put up by
people of various denominations at their own expense and without official backing
by the church. In this case it's Tod Maffin, putting this site together during
his free time on Friday and Saturday evenings, and in so doing, leading the church
kicking and screaming into the information age.
Council of Churches A humble beginning for the major, international organization
of Christian churches.
- Virtual Church
of the Blind Chihuahua This site is a delightful relief to other pretentious
efforts on the Net! It's sense of humor alone makes it well worth a visit. Beyond
that we'll let John Futterman speak for himself. "This is," he writes,
"a sacred place in cyberspace named in honor of a little old dog with cataracts,
who barked sideways at strangers, because he couldn't see where they were. We
humans relate to God in the same way, making a more or less joyful noise in God's
general direction, and expecting a reward for doing so. Hence our creed: We can't
be right about everything we believe -- thank God, we don't have to be."
