In an increasingly fragmented world, it isn’t always easy to line up schedules with other people. Not everyone is a 9-5 player any longer. What this means is that we have to adapt our pleasures and preferences into a matrix of what is actually achievable.
Online activities have been a real lifesaver when it comes to this sort of thing. Driven apart in the real world by distance and scheduling, many people have found that they can continue to pursue their interests through virtual methods.
An online bible study, for example, can be undertaken at any time of the day or night. It can also be done on any day of the week. This allows the practitioner to fit these spiritual needs into their lives without having to sacrifice unduly. It also permits them to expand their regular circle of real world acquaintances and friends by meeting new ones from all over the planet.
