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.

Week of 4 November 2001

Not in the Communion
Father Lyons' Links
Cummins Memorial Theological Seminary, Summerville, South Carolina, USA. (Note: this web page triggered a virus warning on two of our computers, but it does seem to be virus-free.)

Odds and Ends
Anglican Tours, Inc: A travel agency run by an Anglican priest. We find the web site to be so gimmicky that it is almost impossible to read, but the information is useful nonetheless.

Connecticut: North Branford, Zion (Connecticut)
Delaware, New Castle, Immanuel (Delaware)
Massachusetts: Agawam, St David (Western Massachusetts)
Virginia: Louisa, St James (Virginia)
Virginia: Mechanicsville, Creator (Virginia)
Virginia: Orkney Springs, Cathedral Shrine of the Transfiguration (Virginia)

West Indies: Church of the Province of the West Indies

Worth Noting
The person of the book: Retired priest Brian Banks talks about trying to write a book. He begins ' Like many clergy, I promised myself that, when I retired, I would try to write a book about God. It would be short, jargon-free and popular. After 35 years in the parish ministry of the church of England, I thought it would be a straightforward matter to distil the essence of a thousand and one radical sermons into a simple, concentrated narrative.'

A turning point for sites that keep the faith? Leslie Walker writes in the Washington Post about the resurgence of interest in religious web sites. And see the article by Michael Paulson in the Boston Globe about the surge in attendance at church programs and groups.

Give Me That Online Religion, Brenda E. Brasher, reviewed in the Church Times by Anglicans Online's Simon Sarmiento. 'Traditional religions, which surely must include Anglican Christianity, fare badly in this intriguing and provocative, but very American, book'. Find out just how badly in Simon's review.
