Links to Relevant Websites

Diocese of Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island   Christ Church is part of the Diocese of Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. The site is kept up to date, weekly. It contains a multitude of interesting sites... from a Diocesan profile, to the newspaper (Diocesan Times on-line, through to the daily schedules of Bishop "Sue" and Bishop "Ron" should one be interested. Directives to clergy and parishes are also found here. The Anglican Church of Canada.   The Anglican Church of Canada. This site offers an overview of the Anglican Church of Canada ... and has well-maintained up-to-date stories. Good links with other sites and ecumenical activities. Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund Despite its awkward name, the Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund is one of the best development and relief agencies in the country. It is extremely nimble (best response time during disasters) through its relations with ACT (Action of Churches Together) around the world. Low and efficient overhead. Usually the Canadian government matches donations of our members. We have always given major support to the Primate’s Fund, and one of our members, Lynne Taylor, sits on the national board. A Canadian standard. The Anglican Journal   The award winning Journal of the national church is on-line, and is kept very much up-to-date. A worth-while read. The United Church of Canada    The monthly publication of the United Church of Canada is on-line. I have always enjoyed it for its liberal views and broad range of interests. A highly recommended newsmagazine site ... better than most ‘secular’ publications. The Christian Century The Christian Century is a progressive, ecumenical magazine based in Chicago. Committed to thinking critically and living faithfully. It is considered the flagship magazine of U.S. mainline Protestantism, the biweekly reports on religious news; comments on theological, moral, and cultural issues; and reviews. I would think that Christians like President Obama reads it regularly. The World Council of Churches The World Council of Churches (WCC) is a fellowship of churches, now 348 in more than 120 countries in all continents from virtually all Christian traditions. With headquarters in Geneva and regionally located, it is one of the most respected NGOs in the world. Often accused of being ‘left’ because it champions the poor and human rights. It has a strong Biblical base. Dr Morrison first spoke at its ecumenical study centre (The Ecumenical Institute) http://www.oikoumene.org/en/activities/bossey.html in 1970, and has given leadership there over the years, most recently in 2008.
