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.

Wales
Resources
Saints and Stones Pilgrimage. 'trails have been set up to give both holiday visitors and residents in the county access to the deep spiritual qualities of these ancient places of worship, access to some of its more remote and beautiful corners and thereby to bring some small tourist trade to benefit the rural communities. Pilgrimage and visits to these churches continue all through the year and all the churches are open during daylight hours. Visitors are invited to sign the visitors' books and to appreciate the simplicity of the place and the opportunity to enjoy its welcome of peace.'

Worth Noting
Holy faces from the past: Alex Wright writes in the Guardian. 'Faith in pre-Reformation England mattered because it was rooted in the very soil of the entire community. So when we look once more upon the forgotten faces of spectral figures emerging from behind the plaster of a church marooned by time, we might profitably reflect upon what those faces really meant to those who painted them.'

Restoring holy order: Is the King James Bible the only version we should celebrate?: Susan Elkins writes in the Independent. 'What a lot we've lost in terms of cultural roots. Could we use the 2011 [KJV] celebrations to claw some of it back?'

Worth Noting
Faithful locally, prayerful globally: Ugandan-born Canon Benjamin B. Twinamaani, who serves as rector of an Episcopal church in Florida, writes in The Living Church (Milwaukee) on Anglican triangulation. 'This is what we need in the Anglican Communion today: a moratorium on Global South participation in the triangulation dynamics of American Anglican disorder.'

Eliza Griswold on the Muslim-Christian Divide. Religion & Ethics Newsweekly featured this interview with a thoughtful commentator on world religion. 'Griswold spent the past seven years reporting from what she considers perhaps the biggest faith-based fault line in the world—the tenth parallel, the line of latitude 700 miles north of the equator in Africa and Asia.'

Liturgy and society. Alan Wilson continues his BCP series in The Guardian. 'The BCP is defined far more by liturgical statements than dogmatic formularies, offering a distinctive concept of uniformity.'

Michael Lassen RIP: The Economist (London) carries this fine obituary note on stained-glass artist Michael Lassen, who died on 8 September, aged 61.
