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
He is our peace: for through Him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.—Ephesians 2: 18.
When St. Paul wrote these words he was thinking of the deep cleavage in his day between the Jews and the Gentiles. Through the Lord Jesus, he maintained the barrier between the two social and racial groups had been broken down. By the discovery of a common Lord and Saviour they entered upon a deeper understanding and a new unity one with the other. Jesus was their means to peace, for through Him they both had access by one Spirit unto the Father.
From Our Special Correspondent
On Monday evening the Synod was formally opened by choral evensong in the cathedral. The Ven. Archdeacon Bedford-Jones acted as precentor the Very Rev. the Dean and the Rev. Canon Bleasdell reading the lessons. The sermon was preached by the Rev. G T. Lowe, of Carleton Place, from the text “The Body is one and hath many members.” (1 Cor. Xii. 12.)
As part of the Anglican Journal’s 140th anniversary milestone, I was tasked with sifting through the newspaper’s substantial archives in search of stories significant to the history of the Anglican Church of Canada, and to the history of the Journal itself.
