Hallo again to all this Third Sunday of Advent.
Recently I received an enquiry about whether we could indicate 'new' sites at Anglicans
Online. As I wrote in September, just after we became responsible for this site, the
difficulty with putting new labels on is not so much the initial work, but the perplexing
deicision of how long to leave up such a label. On the other hand, many visitors
quite reasonably would like to see quickly what's changed each week. As a sort of
Anglican middle way, I've added a 'New
This Week' page that lists the URLs we've added to
the site during the Sunday update. The roster will remain up for a week. Do email me and let me know what you think of this feature.
To highlight some of those new sites: Episcopal Life, the popular ECUSA monthly
newspaper, finally has its web site up. Wait a bit for the first large graphic to
load and you'll find quite a bit of good content there. Also in the US, the Diocese
of Central New York is looking for someone to assist with stewardship and development and the University
of California has marshalled a good site that contains reviews of software for computer-assisted biblical research. Over in Europe, there are high-level discussions
amongst the Bishops of the four Anglican dioceses exploring new structures for European
Anglicanism. Pop over to the Diocese in Europe site and follow the link
from 'Lambeth 98'.
Many of you will remember the popular US-based Episcopal site 'Welcome Links'. Alas, it appear their
links were no longer welcome, for the site has been removed from the ISP that hosted
it. The 'Welcome Links' forum -- a web-based messaging area -- was certain to be
missed and is now happily resurrected by a contributor and named 'EpiscoTalk'. Have a look (and perhaps
Finally, some of you might be interested in a little Anglicans Online data: There
are about 1,500 links from these web pages (whew!) and we try to check all
of them at least once a month, so you won't get '404 File Not Found's when you try
to link to a site. And on the incoming end, about 4,000 people visit Anglicans Online
every week (that's separate IP addresses, not hits). We're honoured that so many
of you stop by and use these pages as your first source of information about the
Anglican Communion. Advent blessings to everyone of you 4,000!
See you on Advent IV.
