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.

Father Ignatius Memorial Trust. Father Ignatius (the Revd Joseph Leycester Lyne) is remembered for his efforts to restore monastic life to the Church of England, as well as for his considerable success as a mission preacher.

Worth Noting
In the beginning were the blogs: Toby Cohen writes for the Church of England Newspaper. 'Already the Communion suffers discomfort as more sensational comments are flung between its distant quarters. Perhaps some of the subsequent tensions could be eased by engaging more meaningfully in online social forums. This is the time for on-line indaba.'

Law, Liturgy, Wisdom: Benjamin Guyer writes in the Living Church (Milwaukee). 'Richard Hooker is oftentimes described as the founding figure of the Anglican tradition. This is, however well intentioned, a half-truth.'

2008/2009 Statistics (for people who like that sort of thing): 'Parochial church attendance, membership and finance statistics together with statistics of licensed ministers for the Church of England.' The page headers for this report say '2007/2008', so we're not certain what numbers go with which years, but in any event, here are some CofE numbers for some CofE years.

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?'
