MMO Missionaries?

Hamo recently contemplated something that I’ve discussed here on occassion.  And that is, can the popular MMO Second Life (and others like it) might be used as possible mission field?

Dark Knight and dark night

Tony Jones has an interesting insight on the Dark Knight movie.  I like the way that he connected the dark night of the soul with the dark angst of the latest Batman movie.  Cool!
