“The Internet is my religion”

“… God is just what happens when humanity gets connected… Today we are the Creators. We each have our own unique skills and talents to contribute… We serve God best when we do what we love for the greatest cause we can imagine… We have faith that people connected can create a new world…”

I am not a religious person, but this speech by Jim Gilliam of 3dna on faith really spoke to me.

What I love about Gilliam’s heartfelt belief in the power of connected individuals, is that it is more than just the internet. It’s any time that individuals come together in the name of something bigger than themselves. That they find what is holy about this world by finding it in other people.

That is something I can get behind.
