Book of Common Prayer
The Book of Common Prayer in Welsh. The 1662 Book of Common Prayer of the Church of England was used as the Prayer Book in Wales up until 1966, when trial liturgies were introduced, followed by a Prayer Book specific to the Church in Wales in 1984. Revision is still ongoing, and a new Communion service was authorized in 2004, in English and in Welsh. Additionally, the Church in Wales has the 2004 Ordinal online, both in English and in Welsh.
Also in the Church Times, Philip Welsh reviews Mission-shaped Parish: Traditional Church in a Changing World by Paul Bayes, Tim Sledge, John Holbrook, Mark Rylands and Martin Seeley.
Also in the Church Times, Martin Warner reviews three books on prayer.
Mothers' Union, Diocese of Fredericton. 'Membership is open to any person that has been baptized in the Trinity and accepts the Aim, Purpose and Objects of the Mothers' Union.'

Bishop's 5K for Kids. This annual event running event benefits the Bishop's Fund for Children of the Diocese of Connecticut, established in 1994 by Bishop Clarence Coleridge. It looks like a wonderful thing to export to other dioceses.

Case for the defense: Carol Zaleski writes in the Christian Century (Chicago) on proofs for the existence of God. 'The project of amassing evidence in God's favor is [...] dismally unequal to the mystery that one means to represent. Yet it's reasonable to hope that we can supply reasons for our hope.'
The Facts about a Misreported Mass: Christopher Howse writes in the Telegraph (London). 'Most things that the press says about the Tridentine Mass are wrong.'
Thou Shalt Not Judge: The Guardian (London) provides this special excerpt from Stephen Bates's new book God's Own Country: Tales from the Bible Belt. 'Sitting in Alabama, where nine out of 10 inhabitants call themselves Christians, where half are Baptists and where just 1% of the population belong to non-Christian faiths, here was the judge telling me he was living in a godless country.'
God is Not Great: The Case Against Religion, by Christopher Hitchens, and The Cambridge Companion to Atheism, by Michael Martin, editor, are reviewed by Hugh Rayment-Pickard. 'If we want to understand atheism, The Cambridge Companion to Atheism — a collection of essays to guide students of philosophy and theology — is a good place to start. As Gavin Hyman’s essay says, Western atheism is a distinctively modern phenomenon, datable to the Enlightenment.' Quite the opposite is Hitchens who 'picks all the most excessive and disgraceful aspects of the world religions and lines them up as evidence that all religion is necessarily rotten to its core... It is also a lazy book that often has recourse to jibes rather than informed argument.'
Mad, Bad or Sad? A Christian Approach to Antisocial and Mental Disorder, by M. Dominic Beer and Nigel D. Pocock, is reviewed by Jenny Francis. This book could 'hardly be more timely '...though not an easy read, it 'is a badly needed study of how Christians might approach the problems of antisocial behaviour and mental illness in contemporary society. It is rooted in the Bible, well researched, carefully structured, timely, and to be commended.'

Lectionary Bible Studies and Sermons: The Reverend Bryan Findlayson's Pumpkin Cottage Ministry Resources (Australia) ' seeks to provide Christian resources for clergy and church leaders that are true to the scriptures, reformed and focused on the grace of God in Christ. The objectives are to provide: i] Short expository sermons and Bible studies on the set readings of the Revised Common Lectionary; ii] Biblically sound studies on doctrine, evangelism, apologetics, ethics... ; iii] Studies on the ritual and order of the Anglican church.'
