Agora.


"Then Paul stood in front of the Areopagus and said, 'I see how extremely religious you are in every way.'"  Acts 17:22 (NRSV)

"'For "In him we live and move and have our being."'"  Acts 17:29a (NRSV)

St. Paul used the Agora or Gathering Place in Greek cities as the forum for the dissemination of new ideas: political, philosophical, and religious.

In our modern world the forum for sharing new ideas is the Internet.

So we use the Internet as St. Paul used the Greek Agora.
