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.

Some of you may recall hearing or viewing the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II forty-five years ago this month. You can hear the service again (or for the first time) on the Internet by tuning into
Stanford University's radio station KZSU through Real Audio this Thursday, 18 June, at 1am GMT (6pm PDT). They'll be rebroadcasting the entire three hours. Whilst you listen, at another site you can follow the Order of Service as well.

Now to a slightly earlier monarch: Cambridge University Library has put on the web a
splendid 13th-century illuminated manuscript of the Life of Edward the Confessor. The zoom feature on the site allows you to see fine details of the illumination and is most impressive.

Jumping across the Atlantic, the Library of Congress has a nicely done web site of its summer exhibit
'Religion and the Founding of the American Republic'; although the exhibit itself in Washington DC ends in August the web pages are to remain up indefinitely. Leaving the North American continent and heading south, also well done is the web site for the Catedral da Santíssima Trindade in the Diocese of Recife, Brazil.

As usual, our
News Centre brings you the most recent Anglican stories we can find. And speaking of finds, we hope you, our readers (erudite and far-flung group that you are) may be able to assist us. Here's the situation: Many of you will recall references to the Kuala Lumpur Statement, a document produced there in early 1997 during a meeting there of some 80 delegates, primarily bishops and archbishops from the southern hemisphere. We have repeatedly tried to see -- to date in vain -- a roster of the signers of this statement. Many later documents refer to it -- the Dallas Statement and the 'First Promise' text, amongst others -- and these later documents are signed. But the Kuala Lumpur signers remain unknown to us. If you are able to turn up a definitive list of the people who signed the original KL statement in February 1997, we should be most grateful. Email us if you can help.

I have a enquiry from a person taking on responsibility for chapel services at an Episcopal school in the USA. She'd like ideas for involving children musically, from others who have worked in this area. Email
Debbie Schram directly if you have suggestions.

See you next Sunday.
