Noted This Week

WHENEVER WE LEARN about a web site that we haven't previously listed, we'll note it here. Sometimes such sites are brand new and sometimes they have been around for a while without our having noticed. We list two 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. We do not mention on this page remakes of sites that are already in our listings.

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. If you still can't find it, please let us know.

If you would like your website listed at Anglicans Online, please use this form to tell us about it.

Worth Noting
The Archbishop's Sermon: 'This Conference is a time when we can tell each other – and tell the world – about this first and most important job that Anglicans, like other Christians, do: being there, so that they can say 'Christ is here; you're not alone.' They say it where there is daily terror and death, where large communities know levels of daily bereavement we can't imagine [...].' See also

Wheat and tares in Canterbury: the Church Times leader looked to the Gospel which was expounded in Canterbury Cathedral as authority that 'coexistence is the only solution foreseeable to the bishops'.

Worth Noting
Disagreeing Christianly: Unity, Humility and Prophecy: Graham Kings writes on timely topics in this essay, an 'edited version of an address given to the Diocese of Lichfield World Mission Conference at Swanwick, Derbyshire, on 8 July 2008'.

A broad church with narrow attitudes: a former editor of The Times, Sir Simon Jenkins, wonders if anyone would care if the Church of England tears itself apart.

Finding a fitting stone reminder: Christopher Howse writes in the Telegraph (London) on gravestones. 'Harriet Frazer has spent the past 20 years promoting Memorials by Artists, an organisation that puts people in touch with good lettercutters and stone-carvers. Any profits from the enterprise go to the Memorial Arts Charity, which promotes good arts and crafts for memorials (not all of which are set up above graves). In 2002, she was honoured for her work with an MBE. I think she deserves a public statue.' Worth noting, too, is the organization discussed in this article, Memorials by Artists.

Lambeth Reader: 'This Reader contains background reading for the Lambeth Conference. A number of the papers have been published in other places and at other times. The papers are collected together and re-published in this volume for the convenience of those who will be attending the Lambeth Conference. All the material is the product of particular Anglican Communion groups or networks, or has been written particularly for this Reader.' Adobe Acrobat file.

Signs on the Way: 'This special series - focusing on St Johnís Gospel - complements the Bible studies in which the bishops and their spouses will take part during the Lambeth Conference 2008. [...] The studies are structured so that they can be used either by groups or by individuals. They can form the basis of personal devotions, a church study group or perhaps a diocesan meeting.'
