If you’re visiting this site, it’s likely you not only have
an interest in church but you surf the web. With that
assumption, I offer you a sampling of Christian websites
that I find useful, informative, and/or entertaining.
For religious news, I find two magazines to be particularly
valuable. The Christian
offers a mainline perspective while Christianity
provides an evangelical one.
offers an easy to use Bible search engine. Just type in the
Scripture citation and moments later the text (in your
choice of versions!) appears.
If you’re interested in reading the week’s lectionary
passages, visit the Revised Common
provided by Vanderbilt Divinity Library
. You’ll not only get the text, but links to related art
and prayers, too.
I currently serve as a Treasurer and member of the Board of
Directors of The Congregational
Library and Archives in Boston (http://www.14Beacon.org/). Visit the Library’s page to begin
learning about the history of Congregationalism -- which
is also the history of America! You’ll also find a host
of links and other resources.
Love a hymn but don’t remember the tune? Is there a hymn
tune name that seems familiar but you can’t place it? Two
sites can help you: NetHymnal
and the Cyber Hymnal
both have libraries of more than 2,000 hymns. You can
search by title, tune, composer, and more. And each site
allows you to listen to midi files!
has everything Anglican:
church directories, worship resources, historical items,
and more. I only wish something like this existed for
Ship of Fools
bills itself as the “Magazine
of Christian Unrest.” With Mystery Worshiper reviews of
church services and helpful features like the Twelve Days
of Kitschmas, what’s not to like? http://www.ship-of-fools.com/
