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.

Worth Noting
Future planting: This recent Speaking of Faith episode featured the work of Green Belt Movement founder Wangari Maathai. 'A Kenyan environmentalist and Nobel Peace Prize recipient, Wangari Maathai founded a grassroots organization that empowers African women to improve their lives and conserve the environment through planting trees. She speaks about the global balance of human and natural resources, and shares her thoughts on where God resides.' No, she's not an Anglican, but there are very few people we admire more.

Here a covenant, there a covenant: Thinking Anglicans has a helpful collection of links to a wide variety of resources on the recent Anglican Consultative Council meeting in Jamaica.

The Reading Church: Scriptural Authority in Practice. The full text of this recent lecture is available online thanks to Fulcrum. Oliver O'Donovan is Professor of Christian Ethics and Practical Theology at the University of Edinburgh.

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.
