Noted This Week

WHENEVER WE LEARN about a web site that we haven't previously listed, we 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.

Not in the Communion
The Continuing Anglican Church in Zambia: 'Over the past years we have become increasingly troubled concerning the condition of the Anglican Communion, and that of the local Church. Our till recently held senior positions in the Church, our extensive exposure to international church communications, and our regular e-mail contacts with Anglicans world-wide, and our travels abroad have brought us to the realisation that the Canterbury Anglican Communion is terminally ill.' Based in Lusaka, Zambia.

Worth Noting
AO meets Facebook: Although we heartily oppose anything that would tend to create a Facebook Communion, you can now connect with other AO readers and fans through a page on this ever-growing social networking site.

Green men cut in church stonework: The ever-readable Christopher Howse writes for the Telegraph (London).

Why blogs can be bad for the soul: 'It is easy to imagine that all this unpleasantness originates with a small number of obsessive blog "commenters", operating from sweaty bedrooms that have never seen the light of day, living off pizza and pornography, and getting their kicks out of being unpleasant as compensation for their own social inadequacy. Oh, that it were so simple! The people who are being so cruel to each other are just as likely to be wearing pinstripes or flowery dresses or even clerical collars.' The Rector of Putney writes for the Church Times, London.

Italy: Florence, St James (Convocation of American Churches in Europe) Rector

Worth Noting
The Child of Adam and the Renewal of All: The Bishop of Liverpool delivered the second Annual Kreitler Environmental Lecture at Virginia Theological Seminary earlier this year. Christopher Howse discusses it in the Telegraph (London) this week.

The Sabbath is our counterweight: UK Chief Rabbi Jonathan Sacks writes for the Times (London). 'We cannot bring back the Sabbath to the public domain, but we can bring it back to our private lives. We need to because neither the environment nor the economy can be predicated on limitless growth, fed by artificial desire. One day in seven we should give thanks for what we have and open our eyes to the radiance of the world.'
