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
Design a Church Chair: Prompting titters about the rearrangement of deck chairs on Titanic, the Church of England has launched a contest for church chair design. 'The judging panel will assess how the designs respond to the outline specification and how the chairs and benches would interact within an historic ecclesiastical interior. Ultimately the winning designs will be chosen on the basis of affordability, functionality, comfort and aesthetic merit.'

Seven questions every church should ask: The Revd Dr Gary Nicolosi writes for Anglican Journal. 'A good question unleashes imagination, provokes curiosity and expands our vision. Some questions are so full of complexity that no adequate answer is possible, but that does not prevent us from considering multiple perspectives, surface more possibilities and ask the "what ifs" that result in different scenarios, responses and outcomes. In the end, inquiry beats certainty every time.'

Worth Noting
'Experiential Episcopal Church website': 'The Episcopal Church [USA] website – www.episcopalchurch.org – has undergone a complete transformation and redesign into a welcoming, eye-appealing, easy-to-navigate, experiential site.' We were amazed to learn of 'on-demand worship'.

Bethlehem's church of the punch-up: Giles Fraser writes for the Guardian. 'The latest brawl between Armenian and Orthodox monks in Bethlehem is a product of Christianity's romance with buildings.'

Discovering my faith as a religious minority in a foreign country: Catharine Stimpson writes in the Huffington Post.'The most searching way to discover, recover, or practice one's faith is to be a member of a religious minority--to live on a small island of Otherness in an archipelago of bigger religions or in the lake of a theocracy.'
