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.

Henwood Church Supplies (Folkestone, England): A long established family business of ecclesiastical silversmiths and vestment makers. 'We manufacture a wide range of London hallmarked English silver items; e.g., chalices, ciboria, communion sets, oil stocks, baptismal bowls'.

Worth Noting
'Become a born-again atheist for Easter': Simon Jenkins, writing in The Times, argues that Easter has become a pagan festival. There are two people named Simon Jenkins who write about the Anglican church, one an architectural historian and the other a humourist. It is not immediately obvious from this which of the two of them wrote it.

Body found in Jerusalem may have been witness to the crucifixion: The Telegraph reports on a recent archaeological discovery in Jerusalem by Dr Shimon Gibson.

Can the church survive? William F Buckley Jr, writing for syndication, argues that the problem with churches is that we humans are members of them.

Easter must be a celebration of life: Richard Harries, Bishop of Oxford, argues in The Observer that our collective will to live is more than mere biology. Bishop Harries' comments are perhaps more credible because he is not a candidate to become the next Archbishop of Canterbury.

Easter's Challenge: The Sydney Morning Herald notes that by all accounts, the significance of the first Easter Sunday was not immediately apparent.

Holy week in Seville: Elizabeth Saville, travel correspondent for The Independent, writes that 'Nothing prepares you for the magnificence of Seville's Holy Week celebrations, which reached their climax before dawn yesterday with hundreds of thousands of enthusiasts jamming the streets.'

How Easter adds up: Peter Watson, writing in The Times, explains the process by which the date of Easter is determined. (Our News Centre editor comments:'This is the best treatment of this topic I have ever seen, and I've seen a lot of them'.)

Love's embrace: The Times (London) offers an editorial essay about Good Friday and its role in Christianity.
