Hallo again to all, on this Easter day, in the year of Our Lord 2000.
Easter week we often contemplate Christ even more than other weeks. Sometimes
that contemplation includes visualizing Jesus. An exhibit at the National
Gallery in London features all manner of images of Jesus through the ages,
and it has been an over-the-top success. The Church Times's leader this
the Lamb of God,' is a compelling reference to it. (More references
to the exhibit are listed in our News Centre.)
While we're mentioning the Church Times, be sure to have a look at 'Into
the Next Millennium'.
Even in Holy
Week we learnt of new resources to add to our listings. We welcome sites
for The Diocese of Port Elizabeth
(South Africa), and The Diocese
of Port Moresby (Papua New Guinea); The Diocese of Port Sudan, in
the Sudan, is not yet online. New parish pages this week include Lewis
Carroll's parish of All Saints, Daresbury, whose stained glass has a window
commemorating his work. (The white-rabbit window is our favourite
at the moment.) Other sites of note this Easter week include the Church
Publishing Incorporated's fabulously useful ECDplus, which
features a searchable online directory of ECUSA clergy and parishes. We
applaud also the new web site for the J
B Phillips translation of the New Testament, with integrated notes
and maps. This is one of the richest and most scholarly online Bible resources
that we have seen.
Easter is something that one must experience year after year. And each year it is something new. The symbol of rebirth is itself reborn.
A L L E L U I A !
See you next week. And next year, at Eastertide.
