Society of Archbishop Justus, Ltd
Hallo again, dear friends, as
we draw near to the birth of Our Lord. We anticipate Christmas in this letter, as
we shall take a holiday next Sunday and be back with you on 3 January 1999.
Christmas Eve is often a time when millions round the world switch on their radios
or telly for the annual Festival of Lessons and Carols from the
Choir of King's College, Cambridge.
You can have an advanced look at the programme and check in a bit later in the week
on the Minnesota
Public Radio site, the
radio host of the festival. (I confess I can't remember whether it was broadcast
on the Net last year.)
The Anglican Church of Canada was out scouting for Christmas on the Internet, and came up with a splendid roster of
sites. Have a look at the collection and their mini-reviews.
The brand new province of Hong Kong Sheng Kung Hui is on the web, in both Chinese and English, and

for the arrival of Jesus and not on making news. This is good, but it makes for a
dry week in the News Centre. We are almost at the end of the Westminster Abbey organist
affair. Bishop McAdoo of Dublin has died. The BBC has answered +St Albans, and the
Archbishop of Canterbury has sent us all a Christmas Message. The Times (London)
is complaining that Christmas is becoming too commercial (a good thing it is that
they haven't seen the Gadgets for God listing at Ship of Fools). My throat is a little
sore from singing so many verses of O Come O Come Emmanuel, and I've taken to putting
a few drops of oil of myrrh here and there around my house.
All of us here at Anglicans Online
wish each of you a blessed and joyful Christmas. See you on 3 January 1999, the second
Sunday after Christmas.
