News Centre
The world is still here, and computers still work. Imagine that. Despite earlier threats to boycott, the AB of C led the crowd at the Millennium dome in the Lord's Prayer, which many of them knew. The Telegraph and the BBC both report, separately, on the state of Christianity in Britain. No second coming at Rosslyn chapel. Much fuss in Australia over giving government money to church groups to help the unemployed. England didn't burn down because the candles wouldn't fit through the mail slots. The Most Revd Joseph Abiodun Adetiloye retires. Silent church bells. St Swithun's cathedral gets some new-found respect. Archbishop tells Kenyans that they face extinction from AIDS unless they mend their ways. The Prince of Wales confesses his faith on BBC Radio, and Ruth Gledhill listened. This just a day or two after the Archbishop of York took a public stand that a person in the Prince's position ought to be able to be king even if he marries a Roman Catholic, which we hear he, a widower, is considering. A Yorkshire parish finds a Y2K moneymaker. Email from a priest in Australia to a priest in England triggers a chain of events that finds long-lost treasure for a parish.

Week of 26 December 1999

Christmas Resources
'Slightly more than two millennia ago, in the night sky over a small hill town south of Jerusalem, something happened, or didn't, and whatever it was, or wasn't, was an honest-to-God miracle, or a naturally occurring astronomical phenomenon, or neither, or both. Discuss'. Thus begins the Lingua Franca review of two new books on the Star of Bethelem. Well worth reading. --

New Brunswick: Fredericton, Christ Church Cathedral (Fredericton) --

News Centre
Church looks down its nose at cross-carrying competition. AB of York comes out against the Act of Settlement. AB of Canterbury teams up with Murdoch tabloid to spread the good news. Also attacks scientific explanations of natural phenomena. HM the Queen releases her Christmas message. A.N. Wilson writes about 'Who was the real Jesus?' The Guardian asks who should pay for church buildings now that nobody uses them any more. The Times writes about Midnight Mass and interviews Jerry Hall. The Telegraph interviews the Bishop of Durham. St Alban's Cathedral choir has girls now. The millennium won't be over for another year, but nobody cares; they will party anyhow. A rare burst of religious articles in Australian newspapers. The Times asks C of E bishops to celebrate the millennium by dressing down. The Independent notes a mini-revival of religious interest on the BBC, but loses its religious correspondent anyhow. An American rabbi wins England's Preacher of the Year contest. An Anglican church in South Africa sells its land and applies for a casino licence. All this, and (gasp) more, in the News Centre.
