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 busy week with some interesting sites and pages popping up. In the UK
the Times (London) reviews the new St Paul's Cathedral web site and the Telegraph looks at Westminster Abbey's decision to charge a £5 entrance fee. Speaking of London churches, if you're in the city on or around St George's Day (23 April), you might like to take part in the City Churches Walk.

From real places to virtual,
a survey by the United Methodist Church (USA) shows that browsers looking for religious sites on the Web have some specific ideas of what they're not interested in -- does it reflect your preferences? And Yahoo Internet Life, a spinoff magazine of the well-known search engine, features a lengthy look at 'Finding God Online' in its April 1998 issue (and we're pleased to have Anglicans Online mentioned in it).

We welcome the
Diocese of Brandon (Canada) and the Diocese of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich (England), along with an ambitious and intriguing youth and childrens site from Australia's Diocese of Newcastle NSW. Speaking of youth sites, we're sad to report that the Anglican Kids Association an early site on the Net, has permanently closed down.

On our
Lenten Resources page we've added some more links, and those are marked with 'New'. A site from Canada is devoted to a detailed study of the Paschal Triduum, and it will interest many of us as we move closer to the most solemn time of the church year.

Our friends at
Greenbelt Interfaith News (now a quarterly, but their Anglican News will still be found every month) look at the response of the Anglican Church of Canada's gay clergy to the most recent statement from the bishops of the ACC. And speaking of the issue of homosexuality in the priesthood, the site Bridges Across the Divide is dedicated to furthering discussion and dialogue on this issue amongst various religious traditions and denominations.

See you next week.
