Society of Archbishop Justus, Ltd
Hallo again to all, in this new
year of 1999. Although most of us follow the rhythm of the church's year, we can't
but be aware of the temporal calendar as well. Nodding for a moment to that calendar,
we send greetings to each of you. May God watch over and protect this part
of the Holy Catholic Church called 'The Anglican Communion'.
Not surprisingly, it's been rather quiet here at Anglicans Online throughout the
holidays. We note the appearance on the web of two dioceses, the Diocese of Lincoln in England and the Diocese of Edmonton in Canada. A number of parishes gave themselves
a Christmas gift of a web site, and we've listed those in New This Week.
Two bits of choir news: the choir of Canterbury Cathedral is touring the states in April and have
a web site devoted to that tour. And the choir of St John the Baptist Cathedral
of the Diocese of Newfoundland
is online (but, alas, not yet the diocese itself). The cathedral is the oldest parish
in Canada, soon to celebrate its 300th anniversary.
Speaking of time, our own Brian Reid, News Centre editor and Anglicans Online publisher, has reflected on its ways in
a not-very-Anglican essay. He
found an extra second between 1998 and 1999, and as Anglicans Online's computer network
expert, he had to deal with it.
A correspondent completing a master's dissertation on Readers would value email contacts
with people who are either Readers or members of a C of E congregation with experience
of the same. Email Mike
Cranston if you can
Another correspondent sent news of a three-manual console pipe organ on offer, 'which
would be completely rebuilt and designed to be custom fit into the new space'. The
organ is from one Upsala College; it was purchased at auction when the college went
bankrupt. The instrument carries a ten-year warranty. The original price was USD
500,000. 'Resale price is less than half and negotiable'. For more detail, email
We are ruminating about some of the plans we have for this year. They include a redesign
(gasp) of the Anglicans Online site, a search engine (yes!), and a section on our
favourite sites. We hope you'll like our 'To Do' list. If you have ideas or suggestions
for what you'd like to see, send us an email.
Thanks to the many of you who sent Christmas greetings to us and expressed your appreciation
for Anglicans Online. We're most grateful.
See you next week.
