Hallo again to all.
The Ship of the Fens, Ely
Cathedral, has launched a lovely new web site, as has
a slightly larger entity, the Province of Canada, putting online
a most useful set of web pages.
We've posted two new youth positions, which you'll find in New This Week and also in our Youth section (where they will remain for a time, as you'll see from some of the other
openings). If your parish or diocese has a youth ministry position to fill, do let
us know. We'll advertise it happily.
For those of you who wish to continue to monitor the disastrous situation in Honduras,
please bookmark this page. You'll find good links and information
there (along with some astounding photos).
Many who would classify themselves as Anglo-Catholic today may be unaware of the
long tradition of social justice that has been interwoven with it. This site gives you an idea of the people,
parishes, and initiatives behind the fascinating history.
Occasionally between a couple or within a family there are allegiances to both the
Roman Catholic and Anglican Communions. An organization--Association of Interfaith Families--was
founded in the UK some 25 years ago to assist with that. The resources include a
mailing list and lots of good links.
This week Brian Reid has pulled together a full roster of articles in the News Centre, which, in their resplendent variety, defy categorisation. His brief precis
before each one will give you a clear idea of whether you want to read, for example,
about polyester vestments in Birmingham--or not.
A corespondent would very much like a name and contact information--or ideally email
address--for any Anglican who may have served (or may know someone who served) in
the Diocese of Colombo (Sri Lanka) in a missionary capacity before World War II.
He has a fascinating enquiry about children's literature and what may possibly be
an almost-lost book, which this person might be able to help find. Email us here at Anglicans Online if you
can help with this; even the slimmest bit of information would be useful.
Speaking of children's books, noted author Madeleine L'Engle ('A Wrinkle in Time'
and many others) was interviewed this weekend on the US's National Public Radio. If you have Real Audio on your computer, you might find this almost ten-minute
interview absorbing. Ms L'Engle recalls a lovely story about a Rabbinical student
and the Book of Deuteronomy, which we'd never heard before and found heartbreakingly
lovely. (If you don't have Real Audio, email us and we'll send you the story.)
We note with pleasure web pages for St Andrew's, Moscow and the interesting
history of the Church
of England in South Africa. (Some people report having
difficulty seeing anything at all on the St Andrew's home page. If you don't see
anything after clicking the above link, try this one.)
Finally, we repeat our announcement of last week: If your diocese or parish produces
web pages or develops online resources for the season of Advent, do let us know so we can include those
on our Advent resources page, which we'll upload at the beginning of, yes, Advent.
See you next week.
