Dear Visitor: I am beginning to return to this web page, but it will not be as before. With a new job and much travel I do not have the time to devote to posting Anglican news on FreeRepublic and linking from here, not that I can stand the Sturm und Drang in TEC and the Anglican world anymore. For current news and commentary I recommend Titusonenine, Stand Firm, Midwest Conservative Journal, and VirtueOnline-News. For other things Anglican I like Prydain, An Anglican Cleric, Captain Yips Secret Journal, Drell's Descants, and The Prayer Book Society : News (The Rev. Dr. Peter Toon) -- though even for these I am no longer the daily visitor.

Material will be added from time to time. And I still intend to visit and update the provincial links. I intend to update the blog list (because I know of holes in Stand Firm's list). I intend to check and then update the Resources section as I learn of new items. --sionnsar 12/29/2007
