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.

Wales: Hawarden, 25-27 October 2002
Where do I belong in my church? A weekend retreat at St Deiniol's Residential Library, Hawarden
Many of us often feel uncomfortable in our church, or perhaps have even drifted away completely. Perhaps we have doubts about some conventional beliefs, or perhaps we wonder whether the church shares our sense of what questions and concerns are important in today's world. Yet we want to participate in a supportive community of people who explore values and questions about life in a serious way, and want to do something about them, and with whom we can celebrate the great transitions of life. Can we be honest about our beliefs and questions, and still belong to a community of faith? The Center for Progressive Christianity was founded in 1994 to explore new ways of presenting the Christian message to those for whom organized religion has proved to be ineffectual, irrelevant or repressive. TCPC supports congregations and individuals who embrace the search for meaning in their lives and for justice in the world.

Episcopalian on Fire—An Anglican/Episcopalian youth resource site: A wonderful resource for Anglican youth. The 19-year-old webmaster says: 'It contains info about the Scriptures, Sacraments, Anglican Heritage, etc. It also discusses "issues-at-large". Each page has a "suggested external link" on the bottom, and selected bibliographies will be placed on the site soon. The site is all finished, except for the "issues-at-large" section, which will be finished very soon. (I mean, possibly tomorrow.)' If we had any money, we'd hire this man as an Anglicans Online staff writer.
