Welcome! Start here to learn about being Anglican.

general links for clergy and lay, pages for youth ministers and young
Anglicans, and a section on music.

Hallo again, slightly belatedly, to all. Some of you have wondered
what happens to the references to web sites that we feature here on the front page
letter. It's quite simple: the featured URLs are placed in their more-or-less logical
home within the Anglicans Online web site. I suspect you'll generally be able to
find a site you're interested in by considering how it would be categorised: Was
it music related? A parish in the UK? A liturgical resource? The answer will suggest
where it would be. If you ever have any trouble locating a quondam front-page-listed
site, email me and I'll be glad to point it out to you.
Now to this week's interesting web pages. The University of Michigan has a online
exhibit 'From Papyri to King James: The Transmission of the English Bible' which 'includes documents spread across nations, peoples, and languages'
and 'examines the origins of the King James Bible through direct ancestors and related
religious works. Portions from several letters of Paul, the first appearance of Greek
and Latin texts in print, and early translations of English are all on display. Some
of the older documents are written on papyrus and parchment. For better comparison,
some of the Bibles are opened to the same passage providing an easier observation
of the developments in language, handwriting and type design'.
The Anglican Association
of Biblical Scholars is online, and their site features
information about their upcoming annual meeting in November. Speaking of meetings,
you'll find a new section on the Anglicans Online 'General Resources' page which
is devoted to conferences
and meetings. Here you can review Anglican-related gatherings
and read about a series of events in Cambridge, England in November and early December
1997 that marks the 140th anniversary of David Livingstone's speech
which led to university mission work in Africa.
If you consider yourself evangelical, you may like to know that there is a new society
at Virginia Theological Seminary devoted to Anglican evangelicalism. They look
forward to making contact with like-minded students at ECUSA seminaries.
School of Church Music is online, and thinking of church
music in general reminds me that the director of music at Leeds Cathedral (Roman
Catholic) is seeking advice for a choir tour he's planning for Canada in 1999. If
you have suggestions, email Stuart
It's a pleasure to welcome parishes in Bangkok, Thailand and Penang, West Malaysia. And, as always, there are
new web sites listed throughout the various sections of Anglicans Online. Do have
a look round.
See you next Sunday. (Really.)
