Hallo again to all.

This past week the Anglican Church of Canada's House of Bishops issued a
statement on human sexuality, addressing particularly issues concerning gay and lesbian people in the church. This is the bishops first such pronouncement in many years.

Earlier this year the Church of England celebrated the 1400th anniversary of the arrival of Augustine of Canterbury in Kent. A web site given over to
Augustine and his mission provides a wealth of information.

Have a look at a comprehensive site for
Lambeth Palace Library, known the world over for its holdings relating to the Church of England and the Archbishops of Canterbury. Do take a moment to pursue the various links: they're well worth it. Here's an example of the sorts of things Lambeth Palace has in its keeping. When one thinks of Anglican scholarship, the University of Oxford is often not slow to come to mind. Some of you may be as amused and delighted as I was at the description for studying theology at Christ Church, one of Oxford's most well known colleges. Sound scholarship out the Roman Catholic tradition can be found in The Tablet, which will be a familiar journal to many of you. Others who don't know it will, I suspect, be pleased to sample it online.

Many find heraldry a consuming study and ecclesiastical heraldry particularly fascinating. A small collection of coats of
arms of some Anglican dioceses and cathedrals are online (with colour images) and ECUSA diocesan seals are described in a companion page (alas, with no images). If you enjoy descriptions such as 'a saltire with crossed swords in chief midpoint and on an escutcheon at midpoint a key and crozier in saltire, with a chief of three vines (from the state arms), surmounted by a mitre', you'll like these pages.

The Church of England's
Church House Publishing has some good new pages on liturgy and reference materials; you can find, for example, the latest Liturgy 2000 materials on offer, something that will particularly interest those in the UK.

Diocese of Chubu is online, as well as Holy Savior Church, Nagano in that diocese. The latter site contains a vast collection of all manner of links to Anglican-related web pages in Japanese and English.

Here at Anglicans Online we continue to receive notice, every week, of a goodly number of parishes and dioceses who have established themselves online. Bravo! (Do
let us know of any you know of that we don't have listed here.)

See you next Sunday.
