This lady (Jane McGonigal) has some interesting ideas about using computer games to solve real-world problems. Essentially, what she is talking about is Gamification. I know in my own life that this has been a helpful concept. The social game Fitocracy has been very helpful in inspiring me to loose weight and gain fitness. I’ve lost several kilograms in the last few months. You can follow my progress on my fitocracy profile.
I wonder, could this concept be adopted by the church?
