New This Week

ALL THE NEW URLS we receive each week are here. We post two weeks' worth, cycling the old ones off each week. As they disappear from this page, you'll find the links moved to their natural home categories in our resource pages.

If you can't find something that was once here, try our search engine. It searches our entire site, and it can also search all of the sites that we link to.

News Centre
Anglican Primates meet in Oporto and do a good mugwump imitation. Tax problems for enterprising English priests. It's Mothering Sunday in Britain. The ABC wants Charles and Camilla to get married, and other news stories from the mother country. Lambeth Palace open to the public; Prince Charles gets off a zinger to Abp Carey on a tour there. Pastoral letter on 'Stolen Children' in Australia. Canadian Archbishop speaks out about the church lawsuits there. A top English theologian revises his stance on what the Bible means. ECUSA leaders cheer settlement in hotel discrimination lawsuit. A Dean of Durham Cathedral dies. All this, and more, in the News Centre.

Odds and Ends
The Times (London) Online Style Guide - Churches and Clergy: The ins and outs of addressing archdeacons and the befuddling issue of whether 'churchgoer' is churchgoer, church-goer, or church goer. Delivered in crisp, no-nonsense prose, e.g. 'Never ever write the Rev Brown or (even worse) Rev Brown. This would be among the worst solecisms for The Times* to commit. The correct style is the Rev Joseph Brown, thereafter Mr Brown'. -- http://www.the-times.co.uk/styleguide/styleguidechurches.html

News Centre
Lutherans organize opposition to historic episcopate. Bishop of Torres Strait dies. No news from Portugal, but the press releases are flying anyhow. Desmond Tutu clears the way for England to copy Scotland. The Bishop of Ely speaks to the press some more. Christian Science Monitor writes on English remarriage. English bishop angry about bank closings. Anglicans to evangelize door-to-door. Prince Harry confirmed (no surprise?) an Anglican. All this, and more, in the News Centre. But since your News Centre editor is curently chaperoning a group of 100 13-year-olds on a school trip 2500 miles from home, there's not all that much more in the News Centre.
