Noted This Week

Page Editor: Richard Mammana

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.

Canada: Ontario, London, 13-15 May 2013: The House that Isaac Built: The Architecture of Cultures and Identities in Canada
'The House that Isaac Built is an interdisciplinary conference planned in celebration of the 150th anniversary of Huron University College. Huron was founded in 1863 by Bishop Cronyn to supply clergy trained in strictly "Protestant and Evangelical" principles for the fledgling Diocese of Huron, and now offers undergraduate liberal arts programs alongside an ongoing commitment to theological education. With the career of Huron's first principal Isaac Hellmuth serving as the inspiration, the conference seeks fresh perspectives on the intellectual, social, and political context of Huron's founding, and on the contested cultural landscape that Hellmuth's work helped to shape.'

Worth Noting
Baptism for All: The Church Times (London) has a leader on the 'proprietorial view of baptism'. 'The candle that is presented at most baptisms is an apt symbol for the spark that is struck whenever a newcomer encounters Christ. It might take a while, and further tending, for the flame to show.'

Building for mission, not monument: Anglican Journal (Canada) writes on Bishop Victoria Matthews' decision to deconsecrate and demolish historic Christchurch Cathedral in New Zealand.

Orthodox Arts Journal: 'publishes articles and news for the promotion of traditional Orthodox liturgical arts. The Journal covers visual arts, music, liturgical ceremony and texts, and relevant art history and theory. The Journal presents these topics together to highlight the unified witness of the arts to the beauty of the Kingdom of God and to promulgate an understanding of how the arts work together in the worship of the Church.'

Why We Should Do Politics like Episcopalians: Greg Garrett writes on Patheos. 'Could the Episcopal process of "via media," or the middle way, cultivate greater truth and reconciliation in these politically divisive times?'

Commons answers prayers: Lindnor Reynolds writes in the Winnipeg Free Press of the transformation of St Matthew into an affordable housing commons. 'Leaving is not how you serve the community,' says lifelong congregant and WEC board member Bob Clarkson. 'The building was put here for the community.'

'To strengthen our witness to the image of God in each of us and our sharing of God’s love, the Episcopal Evangelism Network is convening a missional development conference. Together we will explore: engaging people and communities generatively across lines of difference, forming missional leaders who can nurture others’ pursuit of their authentic vocation, and discerning the Spirit’s movement in our worship, in our spiritual communities and in our local contexts. In all these explorations, we will seek to follow the Spirit’s lead together.'

Discovering Work-Life Balance: David Edman Gray writes for the Alban Institute. 'As I have read the social science research, listened to people’s struggles, studied theology as a pastor, and dealt with my own work-life imbalance, I have come to believe that increasing work­place flexibility and deepening individual spiritual practice are two of the most important solutions that can help Americans—and particularly Christians in congregations—live a balanced life.'
