Like any religion that of being a geek takes time and dedication, perhaps no part more than that of the gaming geek. This is not a call to become a Christian, but a gamer. A gamer of a specific persuasion who not only plays for thrills and head-shots and boss battles, but to connect their gaming experiences with real life.
It was recorded at Greenbelt, an arts, faith and justice festival with a long and rich history that has been going for 40 years (without a break). The audience was largely people who had a faith, and likely that faith was Christianity. It was also likely an audience who were not yet big gamers. The talk language and tone reflects this.
