An ancient Macedonian coin
An ancient Macedonian coin

Hallo again to all.

In 1994 it began with one person. A few helpers joined in 1996. In 1997, the burden was overwhelming, and Tod Maffin had to let Anglicans Online go. The Society of Archbishop Justus assumed the oversight and staffing of AO, beginning with one, then two, then eventually six people, three editors and three production staff and contributors.

Even six people have been stretched thin, with the responsibility of a site with more than 25,000 links, a weekly letter, a News Centre, and Noted This Week, our roster of new websites. In the last few years, we've weathered changes of jobs, serious illnesses, changes of residence, and the death of our beloved staff member Frederic McFarland a little more than a month ago. So now we are five.

For the first time in 11 years, we're taking the cry of the Bereans as our own: Come over and help us! We could use some assistance. We welcome people who might like to be a part of this venerable website, one of the oldest on the web and perhaps the best known in the Anglican Communion.

This page will give you a bit of an idea of what it means to be a part of the Anglicans Online staff. We trust that will be helpful and not intimidating. Have a look — and see if you see yourself there. (Or here.)

Come over and help us!

For the entire 11 years of our time with AO, there's never been a paid advert anywhere on this site. We are a part of no official organization in the Anglican Communion. We don't apply for grants or gifts from Anglican bodies. (Instead, we adopt the quirky technique of having irregular and infrequent appeals for donations from our readers.) We offer Anglicans Online as our weekly labour of heart, soul, and mind, for the good of our beloved if somewhat broken Anglican Communion. We have no plans to do otherwise. We'd simply like a few other good souls to labour on with us.

So if you think you might like to be a part of this adventure, read our fact sheet and, for God's sake, let us know! In other words . . . Come over and help us!

See you next week.
