What's New This Week

ALL THE NEW URLS we receive each week are here. We list two (sometimes three) 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, you can look in our archives or try the AO search engine. It searches our entire site, and it can also search all of the sites that we link to.

Trinity Episcopal Church in Dallas is holding a two-day conference: New Tool for Evangelism and Church Growth: Morning Prayer for the 21st Century.'For generations, Morning Prayer was the distinctive Episcopal service. Today it's increasingly hard to find. And that's too bad. Because the service of Morning Prayer is not only one of the loveliest liturgies anywhere, it's also one of the most evangelistically useful. In fact, Morning Prayer has rightly been called "the Episcopal version of a seeker service." When presented with freshness and Biblical clarity, it may be the ideal liturgical vehicle for presenting the Gospel message'.

Odds and Ends
The New Jersey Churchscape: The authoritative source on early churches in New Jersey: This looks like a well-conceived and well-written new site, devoted to ecclesiastical architecture in New Jersey. They note: 'We've created a database and photographic inventory on more than half the 18th & 19th century churches in the state and add to it each month. We welcome and solicit all contributions and suggestions from our visitors'.

Watts and Company: The old-line purveyor of ecclesiastical vestments and liturgical appointments. An interesting but strangely odd site that makes heavy use of Flash. Under the 'Tailoring' link, for example, watch as cappa nigras shimmer into readers' vestments, which then teasingly transmogrify into the traditional English bishop's magpie vestments.

Churches in Swansea and Brecon: An interesting site with goals slightly different than most parish or diocesan site, amongst them: 'Provide a "church" presence when one of our communities is searched for on the Internet' and 'To encourage tourists to go to the churches. It is then up to the individual congregations what they do with those who attend'.
The webmaster asks: 'Considering its extent and depth of information it is unique in Wales and probably the UK. Is it unique in the world?'

Brazil: Rio de Janeiro-Minas Gerais, Belo Horizonte, Capela de Santo Agostinho de Cantuaria (Brazil)
