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.

Thursday, September 30: The Biblical Prophets as Political Commentators
The Reverend Robert Owens, Professor of Old Testament. Much of the material preserved in Scripture connected with individuals such as Amos, Isaiah, and Jeremiah has to do with political criticism of the government and dominant institutions of their day. This session explores the values and convictions which brought them into harsh and sometimes dangerous conflict with the "establishment."

Thursday, October 7: Religion and the Meaning of America: 1630 to the Present
R. Bruce Mullin, SPRL Professor of Church History. How do religious concepts and understandings contribute to an understanding of what it means to be an American? How have these understandings changed over time? How does this long history affect present day discussions of religion and the social order? These and other questions will be addressed in this lecture.

Thursday, October 14: Can the Church Be Too Political? Reflections on Levels of Personal, Clerical, Parochial and Denominational Political Involvement.
The Reverend William Doubleday, Professor of Pastoral Theology. Both history and contemporary events suggest a variety of approaches to the question of how religious individuals and institutions can or should engage in politics at the local, state, and national level.

Thursday, October 28: Rhetoric, Religion, and the Presidency: Symbolic Dimensions of Campaign 2004.
The Reverend Mitties McDonald DeChamplain, Trinity Church Professor of Preaching. Presidential campaigns are inescapably religious, and this presentation will explore the ways in which candidates use various media to establish their fitness to be high priest and prophet of the civil-religious tradition in America.
