Hey, that is cool that I am amongst the top two hundred people who have ‘hit’ your blog!

Congratulations on its creation, but I must say the birth of Baby Jack is one of your best works yet! (Or at least up there with Anna and Matty!) Lots of love and big kisses to Louise-she is VERY clever.

Well, we had Billabong church on picnic rugs and chairs out on the lawn under the shade of the beautiful trees today! You don’t get much better than that. The sheep mostly behaved and the canoe was dragged out on the half-full Billabong- not quite as deep but wayyyy more muddy, hence more fun for the boys!

Deborah and I attended a ‘Kids R Us’ children’s ministry conference last week, and we are pumped about our wonderful kids and what amazing things God will be doing with them this year!!

Anyway, have a BRILLIANT week, and I’ll talk to you again soon.

Love from

I like the blog – mine is a bit texty at present !!
But, I guess like you, the challenge is getting the word out there – v encouraging to meet on second life

God’s precious precious shalom on your life and family and ministry…

Hi Mark

Just been listening to your interview on National Radio and your plans to integrate an actual service with your virtual Cathedral. Just thought that I would nominate St Michael and All Angels in Christchurch – churchandschool.org . Very Anglo-Catholic and used to be pro-Cathedral for Christchurch in the early days of European settlement.

Hey Mark –

Not sure how to contact you at this point, so here it is. I am an American Episcopal priest. I’m interested in developing a “monastic” community/space (more like the “New Monasticism”) in SL.
