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.

Worth Noting
An Introduction To The New Testament Apocrypha, by Fred Lapham and reviewed by Leslie Holden. A world of busy writers: Leslie Houlden on the plethora of early-Christian scripture.

The Reformation Continued. The Revd Dr Giles Fraser gave the University Sermon at The University Church, Oxford on 4 May 2004. 'For the message the Church has given to gay Christians is the message Luther came to see as inherently abusive: God does not love you as you are - you need to be completely and fundamentally - and perhaps even impossibly - different before He will love you.' The sermon can be downloaded in Word format.

A Prayer for Uncertain Times, Shaun Casey; reviewed in Sojouners Magazine by Elisabeth Sifton: Thirty years after Reinhold Niebuhr's death, his daughter’s powerful account of his life, goes a long way to explaining this Christian social ethicist's hold on the imagination.

William Cecil and Episcopacy, 1559-1577, by Brett Usher. Reviewed by Diarmaid MacCulloch
Why we have bishops: It has to do with Elizabethan finances, says Diarmaid MacCulloch.

Western Australia: Boyup Brook, St Saviour (Bunbury)

The Hutchins School. Tasmania, Hobart. K through 12 boys boarding school.
St Mark's Anglican Community Day School. Western Australia, Hillarys. K through 12, co-educational. 'All students attend Christian Studies lessons and Christian values are stressed in all areas of the curriculum. The Christian ethic underpins the whole of School life.'
St Michael's Collegiate School. Tasmania: Hobart. A girls school, Pre-K through 12. We think it's a boarding school, but the website takes so long to load that finding information was painful.

Integrity Vancouver: The Vancouver branch of Integrity. Though this site was created in direct anticipation of the forthcoming Canadian General Synod of the Anglican Church, its goal is to 'better communicate the perspective of many of the Church's lesbian and gay members'.

Discussion lists and web forums
Nicholas' Forum: 'A discussion forum that was primarily Orthodox in nature when it began, but now has more of an Orthodox and Anglican slant. It can be rather lively, but has managed to avoid most of the pitfalls of discussion boards, such as constant sniping and personal attacks. It is moderated.'

Episcopal Scouters discussion forum. One of dozens of lists for scouters, this one is for Episcopalian scouts and scouters. 'Members of Campfire, Girl Scouts and 4-H are also welcome. Any and all are welcome to discuss: Duty to God, Scouting in the Church, the religious emblems program, camp chaplaincy, etc.'

Houghton-on-the-Hill, St Mary (Norwich)
Prestwich, St Hilda (Manchester)
