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 also many important official Anglican sites worldwide.

The 2004 Canadian Summer Ecumenical Institute: Be Not Afraid: Common Christian Witness in a Culture of Fear
'We live our lives in a culture of fear: fear of losing our jobs, fear of family breakup, fear of illness, fear of terrorism, fear of exploring the lightness and darkness of our inner selves. We are called as Christians and as churches to witness to Christ and his words to us: "Be not afraid." How do we do that? What do we hold in common? How do we witness together? The Summer Ecumenical Institute will explore these questions. It will also challenge us to ask ourselves just how 'common' it is for us to recognise that what we hold is actually common to us all. More details:
