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 to which we link.


Week of 20 January 2002

Anglican Communion
The Inter-Anglican Theological and Doctrinal Commission has invited the perspectives of Anglicans worldwide on four key questions that are critical to the communion.  

  • When we speak of the Anglican Communion, what do we mean by the word “communion”?
  • What is it that makes some disputes so crucial that failure to resolve them threatens a break in communion?
  • In what ways are Christian teachings about moral behaviour integral to the maintenance of communion?
  • In answering these questions we shall be asking how far does the Virginia Report meet the relevant situations that have arisen in the Anglican Communion since its publication?

The commission are soliciting opinions until 31 May 2002. Alas, it appears that your contribution must be by paper mail to London. You can find more information here.

Worth Noting
Each week we try to find something interesting that we recommend as 'Worth Noting'. This week we think perhaps everyone is paralysed by the ugly infighting surrounding the choice of the next Archbishop of Canterbury. If you enjoy train wrecks, you ought to go read all about it in the News Centre and recall that we told you it was Worth Noting. Or you could add an 'h'. We'll see if we can't find some cute human-interest story with an Anglican spin to list here, so that this section isn't utterly empty.

Wait: here's something real. An excellent article from The Tablet: God in the gallery: Laura Gascoigne writes in The Tablet about the tremendous popularity of religious exhibits in museums.
