Anglican lists, web forums, &c

YOU'LL FIND NUMEROUS Anglican-related or specific-interest mailing lists on the Internet. With any mailing list, you can participate in the exchange of ideas with others around the world. Read on to have a look at your choices.


Mailing Lists, Web Forums, and Selected News Groups

Mailing lists are groups of people connected by electronic mail. If you join a mailing list, you will receive messages sent to the list in your email box, and you'll be able to send posts to everyone else who is subscribed. When you subscribe, you'll be sent instructions (usually termed a FAQ, which is a common Net abbreviation for 'Frequently Asked Questions'). A FAQ contains lots of useful information, so do give it a read. And be sure to save it, since it will give you information about how to remove yourself from the list if you decide to at a later time.

PLEASE NOTE: Many modern email systems have the ability to send "rich text" or "multimedia" or "MIME" or "formatted" email. You must not use this to communicate with the various mailing list mechanisms. None of the automatic processing software that subscribes you to email lists (and unsubscribes you from them) can deal with mail in any format other than plain text, and most of the subscribers to such lists are displeased when people send list members messages in formats other than plain text.


Lists of Blogs

We don't list blogs.


Mailing lists and discussion boards

These lists are for general discussion of things Anglican, open to whomever wishes to subscribe.

The Anglican Examiner
An online forum devoted to religion and public affairs from an Anglican perspective.

Anglican Women Circle Chat (AWCC)
From June Maffin, the list owner: 'This mailing list is for Anglican women around the world to network, make connections, share resources, stories, opinions, dreams, frustrations, questions, prayer concerns; whatever is of interest to members'. On the homepage you'll find directions for subscribing.

Beliefnet, Anglican/Episcopal Board
The submitter's comment: 'I've enjoyed this board immensely. Very well-trafficked and a relatively broad range of viewpoints'.

Canang Discussion list
'a forum in which is discussed the life and ministry of the Anglican Church of Canada. The list offers a lovely window on the world of the church. It is a forum for the discussion of theology, history, liturgy, spirituality, social justice and other topics from the point of view of Canadian Anglicanism. It is intended to foster communication among Canadian Anglicans and others, and will provide an opportunity for networking, sharing of information and ideas and research collaboration. All are welcome, whether they are Canadians or not, Anglicans or not.'

Christians on the Internet - COIN
'COIN hosts mailing lists that help Christians of all denominations to discuss a wide range of interests. The focus is mainly on the Church in the British Isles and discussions cover a range of topics including pastoral and outreach work, church music and liturgical interests.'

EchurchUK 
Christian fellowship for blind and partially sighted people. 'An increasing number of blind, blind-deaf and partially sighted people surf the Web and communicate through email, Echurch-UK brings them together in an email community. Our site also has information for local churches on access and support for visually impaired people'.

Episcopal/Anglican/Religion Community
A chat and discussion forum. Designed to be an 'open and embracing community' that asks everyone to be respectful of varied positions being discussed.

Episcopal Solitaries
'Membership to this list is restricted to canonically recognized Episcopal Solitaries, explorers interested in becoming a Solitary or who those who assist in the discernment process such as spiritual directors and clergy, etc.'

Episcopal Voices
A new list that replaces EpiscoTalk, which was taken down due to decisions at General Convention 2003.

Inclusive Episcopalians
A new site formed in response to some 'negative discussions' on MSN. While brand new and with only slight conversation thus far, it is worth a visit if you're interested in a 'safe haven for inclusiveness'.

Lay Anglicana
'The place to share news and views from the pews. The intention is for these discussions to centre on worship: to be ecclesiastical rather than theological. There are plenty of good websites devoted to the nature of God, and plenty more (usually clergy-centred) which exist to promote a particular point of view, but none that we know of, primarily for and by the laity, on the who and why and which and what of all strains of Anglican worship.'

Magdalen
An email list, whose information page says: 'A place for conversation, fellowship, and friendship. One might think of it as an English pub, where folk come to find food to sustain their bodies, drink to cheer their spirits, and friends to share their lives. Or, if one doesn't frequent pubs, one might imagine that Magdalen Herbert, mother of the Anglican poet George Herbert and the person for whom the list is named, has invited us all into her parlour. John Donne describes "her high intelligence and 'sharpness of wit', as well as her devotion to the Scriptures and to the services of the Church: 'her house was a cort in the conversation of the best'." The List's name also alludes to Mary Magdalen, one of the most devoted followers of Jesus. Most of those gathered here are Anglicans, but that is not a requirement for belonging to the List.' The web site provides information about how to subscribe.

Nicholas' Forum
'A discussion forum that was primarily Orthodox in nature when it began, but now has more of an Orthodox and Anglican slant. It can be rather lively, but has managed to avoid most of the pitfalls of discussion boards, such as constant sniping and personal attacks. It is moderated.'

Note: There are two different Anglican email lists by the name of St Bede's. They have somewhat overlapping, but not identical, memberships, and different structures for list governance. To try to explain succinctly the precise differences between these two lists with the same name and some of the same people would be about as easy as explaining why there are two overlapping Anglican dioceses in Europe, so we shan't attempt it.

St Bede's Anglican Mailing List
'We are members of the worldwide Anglican Communion, friends of Anglicanism and seekers. We respect the diversity of Anglicans throughout the world and we seek to share our growth in Christ. We take the following Scripture as guiding us on this path: And now faith, hope and love [caritas] abide, these three; and the greatest of these is love. (1 Corinthians 13:13)' See this web site for subscription information.

St Bede's Anglican Mailing List
'We are members of the worldwide Anglican Communion, friends of Anglicanism and seekers. We respect the diversity of Anglicans throughout the world and we seek to share our growth in Christ. We take the following Scripture as guiding us on this path: And now faith, hope and love [caritas] abide, these three; and the greatest of these is love. (1 Corinthians 13:13)' Obviously very similar in purpose to the list described just above, but with slightly different governance structure. See the web site for subscription information; look under FAQ.

Saint Honoré
An email list for Anglicans and other Christians interested in discussing just about anything under (or over) the sun. Rather whimsically named for Saint Honoré — seventh-century Bishop of Amiens and patron saint of bakers of holy wafers and other confections — the list is unmoderated, welcomes diverse views, and invites all members to treat one another according to the principles of the Baptismal Covenant in the 1979 US Book of Common Prayer. See website for subscription information.

St Paul's Discussion forum
'For intellectual and spiritual enrichment of all (Anglicans and others alike) and a place to discuss issues facing the church today. Registration is required to post on the forums. Registration is a free and simple process.'

Share
This collection of discussion forums is hosted by Anglican Media Melbourne, and includes sections for general discussion, online resources, worship on the web, prayer, etc.

Ship of Fools: A Magazine of Christian Unrest. What began as a print magazine is now completely on the web. It's humurous and has extremely active web forums.

LitML: a markup language and mailing list
XML, the Extensible Markup Language (a subset of SGML), will replace, at least for some applications, HTML, the markup language currently used on most web pages. XML makes it relatively easy to define an appropriate markup, and lots of groups have taken advantage of this to develop a system for their subject area. The time is right to develop a liturgical markup language (provisionally 'LitML'). LitML might be used to mark up new liturgical texts of existing denominations, and also to mark up historic texts. In conjunction with other markup schemes it might be used for commentaries, and for scholarly and popular works, etc. Such a scheme would be multi-denominational and multi-national.

This is an invitation to participate in the process of defining LitML. The following skills might be useful:

  • familiarity with writing, designing, printing and publishing liturgical texts
  • familiarity with using liturgical texts, as a worshipper, or as a scholar, etc.
  • familiarity with XML (or SGML, or even HTML, or other markup schemes such as the TEI)

It will need people to devise the scheme, people to review it and test it, and people to publicise it to other potential users. Simon Kershaw has created a place-holder web page at http://www.oremus.org/LitML and if there is sufficient interest he will create a mailing list for discussion. Please email him at simon@kershaw.org.uk if you are interested or if you would like more details.

Liturgy

We encourage discussion across a broad spectrum of ecclesiastical and liturgical opinion and actively discourage the use of this list as a forum for liturgical warfare, denominational posturing, or other similar activities. To subscribe, send email to liturgy-l-subscribe@yahoogroups.com.

Chat Rooms and IRC (Internet Relay Chat)

Chat rooms enable you to write and read posts with others on the Web on line at the same time you are. IRC (Internet Relay Chat) works in a similar manner but with its own interface rather than through the World Wide Web. There are a variety of Anglican-Episcopal chat rooms (and Christian chat rooms) on the Web. We've listed the ones that we know about that might interest you. If you know of others we've missed, email editor@anglicansonline.org.

[NOTE: As of January 2011, we're not aware of any active Anglican-Episcopal chat rooms on the web. Let us know if you come upon any.]

Anglicans on IRC
An outgrowth of St Sam's Cyberparish, it still maintains an explanation of IRC and how you do it. But the new, larger, group also has a place to begin. Anglicans interested in Anglicanism and related issues of the communion are welcome.
