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.

Margaret Rodgers of the Diocese of Sydney has written an open letter to the editor of that magazine in response to the article. That open letter is also Worth Noting. (Do you have any idea how fearful we are in this section that we will accidentally type an extra 'h' and make it say Worth Nothing and have people think we did it on purpose?)
