Christian Websites

How do offline Christian communities respond to rituals preformed or practiced online? Within the last couple of decades religion practiced online has become increasingly popular among Christian communities which has altered their traditional understanding of the Christian community (Campbell, 2007). There are websites devoted to forming a Christian community online. Christian Websites provide a range of opportunities for the people who wish to participate, such as, providing a optional place to worship if one is on vacation or away from their offline Christian community, according to Carrigan, author of “Seeking God in Cyberspace: Religion and the Internet.” I will be focusing my case study on Christian websites that are devoted to bringing Christians together to form a community and as a place perform rituals online. By dedicating my case study to Christian websites I can investigate how offline Christian’s respond to rituals preformed online, which will help me explain my research question of: how offline Christian communities respond to rituals preformed online.,r:1,s:0&tx=108&ty=80
