Hallo again to all.

It's mid-August, the Anglican-related web sites and news stories have slowed (at least here in the northern hemisphere), and one of your editors finds herself yawning at the early hour of 11pm Sunday whilst finishing up her part of the weekly Anglicans Online update. As much as she takes the Internet for granted, it's salutary to realise that there are still far more people offline in the world than on. One Anglican parish in Australia is tackling that difficulty, right in its own neightbourhood. The Newlands Project is an energetic and worthwhile attempt to tackle the problems of why some people--and not others--are online. See if the site contains some ideas for your parish or neighbourhood.

The Diocese of Springfield (ECUSA) is online, and we wonder just how many people in the States (or outside of them) could quickly point on a map to the general area of this diocese. Several parishes from round the Communion have new websites, and you can review them all in our New This Week section.

If you live near Sydney, Australia or happen to be in the vicinity in late September, you might want to take in a two-day conference on Religion and the Media, a conference at the University of Sydney with a roster of impressive speakers and presenters. (If you do attend, do please send us a brief report.)

There is something worth your attention in our News Centre this week. It's a series of three essays on the ordination of women in the Church of England. Since much of what is written on this topic is full of hate or hot air you may well have stopped reading about it, from a sort of battle fatigue, but you need at least to be aware of these essays. They all come from the Roman Catholic weekly The Tablet.

See you next week.
