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.

Worth Noting
God Talk: James Wood writes for The New Yorker on the 350th anniversary of the 1662 Book of Common Prayer.

Spiritual Capital: 'Church of England cathedrals have a unique and widely admired position within English society. Praised for their architectural magnificence, aesthetic appeal and historical significance, this report shows that their impact on and significance for English life extends far beyond their role as tourist destinations. Based on an extensive and detailed research programme carried out by The Grubb Institute and Theos over 2011-12, Spiritual Capital looks at Cathedrals in contemporary England, assessing the breadth, depth and nature of their activity and appeal, with the objective of helping those who run and work in them to understand and respond better to the challenges of the 21st century.'

Australia: Parish of Grafton (Grafton) Precentor of the Cathedral and Chaplain to Grafton Correctional Centre

Worth Noting
Anglicans, archbishops and presidential confusions: Savi Hensman writes for Ekklesia. 'Whoever is chosen will face a challenging task. It is important however not to expect one man, whatever his gifts and office, to substitute for the wider church community. If "ordinary" Anglicans pin their hopes on a leader and fail to accept responsibility for witnessing to Christ and seeking the Spirit’s guidance, disappointment will be unavoidable.'

Vicar Academy: 'Ever wondered how priests are trained to serve in today's communities? There's a lot more to it than studying the Bible and learning how to compose sermons, as a television crew discovered when they spend a year following ordinands from across Wales training for ministry at St Michael's College, Cardiff.' Starts on BBC1 Wales 15 October at 10:35 p.m.
