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 major sites to which we link.

Common Worship: Daily Prayer — the new Anglican Breviary. A must-see site, that offers, in addition to its hints and tips on working with the new breviary, 'a daily prayer "feed" direct to our server, giving the offices of Lauds (Morning Prayer), Vespers (Evening Prayer) and Compline (Night Prayer) in full for every day of the church's year. We shall offer two feeds: the Office for today and the Office for tomorrow'. (Note: As the site is based in Hawai'i, you may need to adjust the concepts of 'today' and 'tomorrow' to your own timezone.)

New Zealand
Latimer Fellowship: A voluntary society within the Anglican Church of New Zealand maintains a website that attempts to bring Biblical perspective to issues that face the church.

Jesus loves me: Graham Bowley, writing in Britain's Financial Times, reflects on the current controversies in the Anglican Communion.

Microscopes have no morals: Colin Tudge, writing in The Guardian (London), notes that science needs the ethical underpinning that religion can best provide. His essay may be partly in response to an article last week on why so many scientists believe in God.

Worth Noting
Communication Breakdown: Leanne Larmondin, writing in Canada's Anglican Journal, offers an editorial opinion about the role of real communication in the global church.

God made me gay: Retired priest Bruce Lowe wrote this 'biblical affirmation of homosexuality' well before the current arguments started. We recognize that this is the sort of piece that is likely to infuriate people whose opinion is different and bore those whose opinion is the same, but we found it well written, not at all inflammatory, and worth reading.

An Open Letter to Episcopalians on the Issue of Homosexuals and the Church: by Dr. J. Carl Ficarrotta, a parishioner of Grace and St Stephen's Episcopal Church, Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA. Dr Ficarrotta says: 'I teach philosophy and have been an Episcopalian for over 25 years. Naturally, I have been following the events at this month's national convention, and the reaction here in Colorado. I have written an open letter on the subject of homosexuality and the Church. It is a letter I hope will be accessible to someone without training in philosophy, but at the same time it employs some philosophical argumentation'.
