I prefer face-to-face communication, but I have plenty of friends and co-workers who would rather text or email a message than deliver it in person or use the telephone.  In fact, many people these days prefer to operate in a virtual community.  But, is a virtual community a good substitute for a physical gathering of believers?  I like what Brian Hardin, founder of the Daily Audio Bible, says about the DAB community--it's a "very good place to heal, but it's a very poor place to hide."
