England: Derby, 17 August 2013: Bell Ringers Open Day
'Derby Cathedral will be holding their annual Bell Ringers Open Day next Saturday (17 August, 10.30am-4.30pm) giving visitors a chance to ring under careful supervision. The Cathedral Tower will also be open for visitors and there will be ringing demonstrations. Admission to the Cathedral Tower is £3 for adults and £2 for children (only children aged 8 and over are admitted). On display will be an exhibition of photographs of the bells. Visitors will also get the chance to watch and hear the mechanism that uses levers and hammers to play tunes on the Cathedral's bells and carillon. Derby Cathedral boasts ten bells in its tower one of which was cast in 1520, during the reign of Henry VIII, and is still in use almost 500 years later, making it one of the oldest working objects in Derby. Developed in England in the 17th Century, our system of change ringing is a unique form of music-making, which forms a significant part of English culture.'

Christianity and Honor. David Hein writes for The Living Church (Milwaukee). 'Certainly no chaplain or school head ever arises in chapel and proclaims: I now know that we have been deceived into accepting this honor system all these years; shame on us! And yet conscientious Christians might want to raise some questions about their compatibility, and then go on to see if they can sort out any tangles that appear.'
