Fathers Johann Barak and Joshua Tuchs (these are SL™ avatar names), who in RL are two Eastern Orthodox priests in USA, together with Presbytera Anna Hirschel (again, SL name--she is also in RL Eastern Orthodox and based in USA) held a two-hour seminar at our SIM in Second Life® on Thursday, 1 May 2008, starting 1:00 PM PDT/SLT = 9 PM BST (GMT+1) about 'Sexual Purity and Healthy Relationships: A Christian Orthodox Perspective for the 21st Century'.
Our three speakers held an open discussion along the lines of this video: http://realserver.goarch.org/ram/en/s... - which we also streamed a short segment of in-world at the start of the seminar. They responded live (in text and voice, but mostly in text) to questions from about 25 avatars who attended all or part of the seminar in-world. Fr Johann Barak, Fr Joshua Tuchs, and Presbytera Anna Hirschel believe that Orthodox Christianity has a strong and very important and practical message for the whole world, especially these days with the very recent announcement of the US CDC that 1 in every 4 American teenage girls has a sexually-transmitted infection (HPV) that can lead later in life to cervical cancer (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/7...).
