Newspapers Online
The Australian Church Record --

News Centre
Australia prepares to elect a new primate. Please hurry: we need archbishops with good sense in that part of the world. Britain argues about homosexuality and law, but we don't cover the story because we think it's British national news and not Anglican news. Primates from Singapore and Rwanda consecrate two Americans as bishops, presumably to send to the USA to create schism. We have extensive coverage of this. More on the Wee Frees, including some commentary on just how wee they are. Bishop of Wakefield writes a Credo. British government suggests that the church could do more to help the homeless. ("... after all, aren't those churches mostly empty these days?") Ruth Gledhill writes about an ancient clock at St Albans. A new issue of Beowulf on CD ROM. A new book about the Church of England, which we will call "major" at least until we've had a chance to read it. England continues to writhe over the issue of divorcees remarrying in church. All this, and more, in the News Centre.

This study takes a step further back in history to learn more about the historical Jesus'.
