the liveliest spots in the Anglican Communion.

Hallo again to all.
Many of you probably have heard something of the statement released by the Vatican
on changes to Roman
canon law. We cover that, with full background, in
our News Centre. Amongst the disturbing factors is that the substance of the 1896 encyclical,
which proclaimed Anglican holy orders null, will be trotted out again. You might
like to read the response issued at that time by the archbishops and bishops of the Anglican
Communion to Pope Leo XIII; written originally in Latin,
it's translated into English on the web site. A very comprehensive reply it is.
Slightly more than 100 years later, our bishops and archbishops will shortly gather
for the 1998 Lambeth
Conference. We thought it appropriate to send greetings to the conference from
readers of Anglicans Online. Have a look at the greeting
we've drawn up and if you feel so inclined (and we very much hope you do) please
add your name. We hope to amass several thousand signatures, which we'll then format
into a printed document and send by express mail to arrive as the conference begins.
If you have colleagues or friends who occasionally visit Anglicans Online, please
encourage them to stop by in the next week or so and to consider adding their names.
We'll take signatures until 15 July.
Some of the glories of the Anglican Communion are its cathedrals, many of which are
gothic in their architecture. Have a look at this concise web page devoted to that architectural style,
with several good examples of English cathedrals.
This week brings a new mailing list devoted to issues of science and religion. Speaking of science, we found a web site about an initiative of the Diocese
of Minnesot focussed on environmental stewardship, which is most
interesting. Finally, we bring you a special report on an unusual situation on Torres Strait, Australia.
to the Arctic: being part of our 70-million worldwide Anglican Communion is for me a joy (if, I confess, occasionally an aggravation). What unites
us, I believe, is far greater than what may occasionally threaten to divide us. I
hope you feel the same. If so, do sign our greeting.
See you next week.
