Tell Us What You Think

This web site is maintained privately by
volunteers. It is not a sanctioned organ of any official church body, though does list links to official church sites and documents.

The Society of Archbishop Justus, Ltd

Hallo again to all.

A good bit of news from England this week: the activities of General Synod with regard to the revision of the Lord's Prayer caught the attention of
The Telegraph. Read more about that in our UK-Europe editor Simon Sarmiento's general overview. (Note: The link is working now; sorry about that.) Matthew Hunt, a member of the House of Laity, provides on-the-scene coverage.

What would normally be a quite uneventful occurrence -- the publication of the Church of England Year Book -- has become a something of a hot issue. Read
The Times and The Observer to get the full story. (Do remember that you may need to register to read these online newspapers, although there is no cost to do so.)

Diocese of Melbourne (Australia) is online now with a very comprehensive and interesting home page. And speaking of comprehensive, the Episcopal Church in the USA has a 1997 edition of its Constitution and Canons online. If you'd like another look at ECUSA's Presiding Bishop Frank Griswold, see the indepth article at Greenbelt Anglican News.

If you'd like something to nibble on with all that reading, have a look at
foods available from religious communities, from chocolate truffles to herbal teas. The variety is surprising (to me, at any rate).

A substantial number of Canadian and American parishes came to our attention last week, including our
first parish from the Diocese of Saskatchewan and a parish from the Northwest Territories. Welcome!

We're pleased to be featured in the new 1998 Rough Guide to the Internet and World Wide Web, published by Penguin. We rather like the adjective 'gentle'!

See you next week.
