Hallo again to all. I had thought in some vague
way that Easter week might prove to be rather quiet. I was wrong: quite a number
of Anglican-related web sites have popped up. I'll start with two new official sites,
one for the 1998
Lambeth Conference and another for
home of the Anglican Communion Office.
The older ACO home page (http://www.aco.org) seems still to be in place; you might want to keep them
both bookmarked for the time being. We've linked these sites in our Lambeth Conference area
of Anglicans Online and will highlight more Lambeth links as we become aware of them.
Several Anglican-related news stories continue to come in from the UK, everything
from an article about bishops' views on the resurrection
to plans for a virtual chapel
at the official Church
of England web site. In the USA, the
Lutherans (Evangelical Lutheran Church of America) and the Episcopal Church continue
their move towards
a concordat and, zeroing in on Massachusetts,
there's an ambitious and worthwhile project under way: the formation of an Episcopal 'middle' school for low-income children in the city of Boston.
A new web site has set as its goal the collecting of all relevant information about
Church in Africa, which will be a most
useful resource. We welcome the Cathedral of the Holy Trinity (Catedral da Santíssima Trindade)
in the Diocese of Recife (Brazil),
church in the Diocese of Calgary, along
with quite a few parish web sites in the USA.
Alas, St Ann's Episcopal Church, in Nashville, Tennessee (USA) was virtually destroyed
in the violent tornados that state suffered a week or so ago. St David's Episcopal
Church, a neighbouring parish, has set up a small web page for the beleaguered church and will be glad to forward emails to St Ann's with
your words of cheer and support. If you can, please remember the parish in your prayers,
along with all who have suffered round the world from the effects of devastating
Dear friends, I shall be taking a little fortnight's holiday from Anglicans Online
and during my two Sundays away, you will be well looked after by Brian Reid, a fellow
director in the Society
of Archbishop Justus and publisher of these web pages. Brian will be monitoring all the new URLs you send in,
so don't think for a minute that any of Anglicans Online features will stop. You'll
find his letter here on the next two Sundays. (Oh, one last thing: I shall still
be reading email, so feel free to write me at the address below.)
Eastertide blessings to all of you. See you
on the tenth of May.
