This year marks the Anglican Journal’s 140th anniversary, and we would like to thank you for being a faithful reader and supporter.
Turning 140 years old is an exceptional milestone for a newspaper—not that many publications can lay claim to such longevity. Today, the Journal continues to be at the forefront of providing Anglican, religious and secular news and viewpoints that enrich a Christian life. It is an important tradition—alive since 1875—that is truly worth celebrating and preserving.
We are highlighting our 140th birthday with a special web page that will feature new and old photographs and stories. Fourteen articles will be showcased, all published in the Journal within the last 140 years. We selected the articles for a variety of reasons: some reflect historic events and seminal moments in the life of the Anglican church and the Anglican Communion; others display thinking that was ahead of its time; and still others because they exemplify the immortal qualities of good old journalism.
We hope you will enjoy our offerings. We’d also love to hear from you. Please submit your comments at the end of each article or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
Timeline: The Journal through the years
Last November 29, Islam reached a new milestone. The adherents of the world’s second largest religion began a new century, Islamic year 1400.
Fourteen centuries have elapsed since the Muslim prophet Muhammad emigrated from Mecca to Medina.
Now is a good time to reflect on what has taken place in the lives of our Muslim brothers and sisters during the past century, and to consider their mood today. The subject is of considerable importance to both the world and the church.
“A trip without acid.”
That was the advance billing given the controversial “psychedelic” service in Vancouver late last year.
In the jargon, “trip” describes the experiences of a person using LSD. “Acid” is slang for the drug.
