Annual Meeting 2013 was the first one held entirely online. According to the Church Manual, “No other than its officers are required to be present” (p. 56), yet via the Internet those who attended were in the cyberspace presence not only of the officers but of Christian Scientists from around the world. Several video reports from the Field added even more color and dimension to the meeting.
