USA: The Evergreen Church Music Conference, 24-30 July 2000

Included in the list of those who have been a part of this historic conference are Leo Sowerby, Alec Wyton, Peter Hallock, Richard Proulx, Marilyn Keiser, and about any other name who has made any kind of lasting contribution over the last 100 years to Anglican music in America. For more information, contact John Repulski, conference coordinator.

Bradley Sowash, pianist: a highly-regarded musician ('One of the best solo piano albums of 1999" ... as heard on NPR's "Morning Edition."') often found at Anglican churches. Find out why: --

News Centre
The God Channel fined. The pesky year-before-Millennium dome just won't stay out of the news, even when Prince Charles gets angry upon seeing it. Time to put poetry back into God's language. The ECUSA has a major crisis about its General Convention (come on, just cancel it and spend the money on your web site instead). Various world primates slap Frank Griswold. Lutherans wriggle about the Concordat. Desmond Tutu preaches another great sermon. Bishop Spong about to retire. Church attendance figures rise if you count people who attend once a year. England plans to double the number of Church of England schools. Another great bishop dies (do they make them like they used to? We think so). Parliament of World Religions meets and is reported upon. Quebec creates a French-speaking Anglican parish. Lorem Ipsum. More news about the Scottish nun in trouble with church authorities. BBC takes heat for cutting back its religious programming. All this, and more, in the News Centre.

Sea of Faith: 'Sea of Faith had its small beginnings in the 1980s, in the wake of a BBC television series which examined the decline of institutional religion and asked what might replace it in our complex postmodern world, where the certainties of scriptures, clerical hierarchies and supernatural underpinnings no longer make sense'. --

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

Book, Journals, etc.
Technologies for Worship Magazine: Perhaps more appealing to churches other than Anglican, the online magzine is still worth a browse. In the December issue, you can read the article 'Special Effects: Angels' and learn about 'a miraculous-seeming material made by the 3M Corporation ... the substance reflects almost 100% of any light that strikes it; much more than almost anything found in nature. Dressing angels in this fabric will indeed cause them to appear "like lightning."' Useful for those of you directing Christmas pageants. --

News Centre
An interview with a professor of the sociology of religion. A new parish church in a very unlikely place. An English bishop writes about water, and he makes it fascinating. Ruth Gledhill and Victoria Combs do the town together, but don't give us any pictures. News about trials and prosecutions and other things we'd sometimes rather not report. We have refused to carry any news about sex this week, for no particular reason. A report of a spellbinding sermon by Desmond Tutu. A virtual cemetery in the UK. A survey showing that Canadians are becoming more religious even as the English are becoming less so. Several reports on the Millennium Service at St Paul's in London. Only one Y2K failure reported in the Anglican world. All this, and more, in the News Centre.

Saint George in English History: origin, influence and significance --

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.
