Wii Warm Up: Gaming and (at?) church

A couple of days ago, Joystiq reported on churches using Halo to lure in younger folks who might not otherwise bother to spend the time going to church. The recent buzz may be about Halo, but the idea behind the campaign isn't new: we've reported on other examples of churches using the gaming angle, and many of us have seen or experienced it in our daily lives. This is one issue we figure will result in some pretty distinctly drawn lines, so it certainly makes for a perfect morning discussion topic -- how do you feel about games in the church? -- but we do encourage everyone to keep things respectful. Religion is a sensitive and often personal topic, after all, but that doesn't mean we can't discuss the implications of gaming and churches over our morning coffees.
