December 03 2004 By virtueonline Reflections on the Windsor Report and Lagos Meeting - by Bill Atwood

It is humbling to have been invited. It is also encouraging to see so many friends and gratifying to hear reports of the impact of our conferences and projects. One of the Archbishops here attended one of Ekklesia’s first conferences years ago when he was still a layman. Another Archbishop who was at that same conference as a priest said he still uses the principles he received those years ago. Many spiritual partnerships already exist, but there are real needs for more of them.

Mmmm. I wonder why Orombi’s sermon might have been cut short?

November 20 2004 By virtueonline Death by Delay / A Failure of Fortitude - by Gil Wilkes

Over the past year, Bishop Smith has taken no overt action against us and has genuinely, I think, sought to find a middle ground. The problem is that DEPO is fatally flawed, it allows an orthodox bishop to perform ceremonial functions, but all power and authority rests with the Diocesan. Additionally, DEPO, as it is structured by the HOB is temporary and is intended to result in reconciliation. Unfortunately reconciliation is understood to mean that revisionist doctrine prevails.

November 19 2004 By virtueonline Shall We Walk Together or Walk Apart? - by Dr. Philip Turner

It is the possibility that my church, perhaps along with the Anglican Church of Canada, will (by refusing to "call a halt") make a de facto choice to "walk apart" that most deeply concerns me. It is this possibility that sets the direction of the remarks that follow. I confess that my own biography leads my thoughts and reactions to give greater weight to the health and continued existence of the Anglican Communion than to the particular internal exigencies of my own church.

November 17 2004 By virtueonline What Do They Really Want? Values Voters & the '04 Elections - by Diane Knippers

So, what do the Christian conservatives really want?

[b]Pro-Marriage and Pro-Life[/b]
The two moral issues most highly identified with Christian conservatives are their desire to protect unborn children and their desire to protect the definition of marriage as between one man and one woman. To begin with, they want jurists who faithfully interpret the Constitution and the law – not jurists who invent constitutional rights to secure their own social objectives.

November 17 2004 By virtueonline An Eloquent and Ravishing Explosion:U2’s How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb

Then the stoic, folksy authenticity of “One Step Closer,” the shimmering, convicting irony of “Crumbs from Your Table,” and the glittering, expectant wisdom of “Original of the Species” transcend expectations and confirm hopes — and what else does this band trade in but hope?

Another day with the record will banish any doubt that Atomic Bomb is, song for song, a work of art: complex, gutsy, intimate, demanding, eloquent and ravishing.

Top right: oil derricks.

Middle right: the Hollywood Bowl, along with two stars representing the movie industry and one small cross.

Bottom right: a prize cow.

The central figure, the largest object on the seal: Pomona, the Roman goddess of gardens and fruit trees.

Anything disturb you enough to demand that the seal be redesigned?

November 13 2004 By virtueonline "Jawbone and Gums, but No Teeth" - by James K. McCaslin

We praise God for these two congregations: for their joyful faithfulness to Him and for their eagerness to serve the Lord through serving others.

We praise God for the time of worship we shared in both churches. And we praise God for the intercessors who prayed diligently before and during the conference.

November 08 2004 By virtueonline PITTSBURGH BISHOP: "There will be conflict in this convention."

Jesus tells his followers plainly that they, too, will know tribulation, literally "grinding." Peace in the world has not characterized His ministry, nor will it characterize theirs. The "world" is in rebellion from the will and Word and works of God, so those who attempt to do things God¹s way will always have tribulation ­ conflict ­ in the world and with the world.

November 04 2004 By virtueonline Spirited away: why the end is nigh for religion

It is unlikely that you, the average punter going to your aromatherapy or meditation group this evening, imagine that you are revolutionising the sacred landscape of Britain. But, little by little, you are.
