Today on the 88 Names podcast site, we have a written interview with Bishop D.J. Soto, lead pastor of VR Church, “the first church to exist entirely in virtual reality.” (Services are conducted on multiple online platforms, but the visitor guide on the church website recommends that first timers come to the one on AltspaceVR.)
Like all forms of religious innovation, this one gets a certain amount of side-eye from more traditional clergy, but I think it’s a perfectly valid, fascinating idea, and Soto himself is a really interesting guy. Be sure and check out the links to the online baptisms in the interview. And you can read more about D.J. Soto and VR Church here.
