Progress Report for Christmas A.D. 2021

I had hoped to finish all the updates to existing material during A.D. 2021, but I could not get the work done in time. The resources that have been saved at are quite large: 1) 18 video series with almost 200 episodes. 2) Seventeen books, some with Kindle editions already completed and available and others with work still in progress or not yet started. I’ve fixed many issues regarding links to my Amazon Author Central page. All the print books are now included on the site. 3) Over 225 podcast, some with accurate links and some with confused links that need fixing. Finally, seventeen books

Nonetheless, here’s the latest progress:

Podcast Homilies: all Podcast Homilies have now been updated, saved and linked from the Podcast Homilies page to our podcast site (

Video Series: There are now almost 200 videos hosted at our site, with links from the Digital Library page or Bible Study/New Testament pages. I had thought that I had fixed all the issues with The Twelve Days of Christmas series, but during this season it became evident that there are still several technical issues which need resolution. These include correction of technical issues (stutters, mumbles/fumbles, and incorrrect or incomplete picture credits). These cannot be changed until after the 2021-2022 A.D. Christmas season is over.

Podcast Links: There still remain several issues concerning the podcast links for some of the video series. Again, these cannot be repaired until early next year.

Amazon Author Central: I had not known that Amazon had made changes to their Author Central site. I have now adjusted AIC Bookstore materials to include all seventeen books. As noted above, the Kindle editions for the newest books are not complete.

Meanwhile: I remind site visitors and followers to view the appropriate episodes in the Twelve Days series. As of today, all twelve links now go to the correct file at Vimeo. As far as I can tell, there are no more dead links to our former site host’s site.

Thanks again for your interest and support. May God bless you in all that you do in His name! Amen!

Glory be to God for all things! Amen!

Podcast Homilies Revised through Sunday after Ascension

All the Podcast Homilies from First Sunday in Advent through Sunday after Ascension have been updated and the files linked from the Podcast Homilies page. The podcasts for Whitsunday/Pentecost and Trinity Sunday are currently being edited, with completion expected before Christmas. I am suspending further work on the podcast until after New Year’s Day.

The revised version of Lessons and Carols for Christmas Eve is now linked from the Welcome page and also the Digital Library page. The new music by Richard M. S. Irwin is inspiring. His web site continues to offer music to parishes without a pianist or organist.

I wish each of you a Merry Christmas. And may God bless you in all that you do in His Name! Amen!

Glory be to God for all things! Amen!

Lessons & Carols for Christmas Eve – 2021 Edition

Finally, the 2021 Edition, started in early summer with the help of Richard M. S. Irwin in England, is now complete and linked from the Digital Library page. Thanks to the sharp eyes and ears of Richard, an error was discovered in the version linked in August. The error was the result of my using the American words to Good Christian Men, Rejoice, and Richard playing to the English version, which differs by one bar in the first verse.

With this new version, this year, anyone anywhere, anytime can have access to a traditional version of this classic Anglican program for Christmas Eve. Patterned after the much longer service at King’s College, Cambridge, England, this version features new music arranged and performed by Richard in a variety of media. The readings are from the Nativity narrative in the Gospel of Luke plus a reading from John 1.

Again, I thank Richard for his hard work in making this possible and to my wife, Corkie, for reviewing the slide

Revised Podcast Homilies Now Appearing

With the publication of The Acts of the Apostles: Annotated & Illustrated and the completion of the rebuilding of all 28 episodes in our video series on Revelation: an Idealist Interpretation, I’ve turned my attention to finishing the planned upgrading of our unique Podcast Homilies series. I thought it was time for a complete overhaul of the series with which I started the AIC on the Web more than a decade ago. The AIC began with live broadcasting of services from my former parish via the pioneering but now-gone vendor, UStream. From that base, I built the 10-12 minute MP3 podcast homilies programs which attracted a significant following of the Web.

In 2020 and 2021, the focus was on updating all the video series, which now come to about 19 different programs presented in almost 200 episodes. I had worked on updating the Advent, Christmas and Epiphany series early in 2021, but never finished the job. I was not satisfied with the end product and quit before completing the Epiphany series.

This week I realized what it was that was missing from the old-style MP3 podcasts: music and a more complete connection between the MP3-based programs, the AIC Bookstore Publications (now with 17 books) and the teaching videos with beautiful and inspiring images Christians have created since the 6th C. A.D. The revised and expanded Podcast Homilies series opens with the same theme music used in the Seasonal Video series on the season in the Church Year, plus fixes a number of very technical issues, and adds more context plus more complete cross-referencing to the library of materials now available on or through this web site.

I hope each of you enjoys these changes. And, if all goes well, I will uploaded the new version of Lessons & Carols for Christmas Eve, which features new music recorded for us in England by Richard M. S. Irwin (

Thank you for your interest and support. And, as always, may the Lord bless you in all that you do in His Name! Amen.

Glory be to God for all things! Amen.

Joyful News – It’s Done!

This afternoon I completed and uplinked from this web site all 28 revised episodes in Revelation: an Idealist Interpretation. There was so much new material that Episode 26 and Episode 28 had to be divided into two parts each. Episode 27 and Episode 28 offer a visual feast of colorful images from nearly all the major surviving manuscripts of St. John’s masterwork from the 8th to the 14th C. I expect to covert all the videos into podcasts in MP3 format during the next ten days.

Also completed this week was the 2021 upgrade and rebuilding of Lessons & Carols for Christmas Eve, which features all new music by Richard M. S. Irwin. The episode will be linked from this web site before the end of this week. I again thank Richard Irwin for his participation in this enterprise. I wanted Christians anywhere to have access to the traditional Anglican service in this age of lockdowns. The revised program has a running time of just over 25 minutes.

The next project is the completion of the planned upgrade of all the Podcast Homilies for the Sundays in the 1928 Book of Common Prayer. The scripts for all the revisions have completed but only those for Advent through Epiphany have been recorded. My plan is to release the already completed work before starting on the Sundays in “Gesima”, Lent, Easter and Trinitytide. These latter will be completed and released before the start of each season.

With the publication last month of the fifth book in the New Testament series, I intend to prepare an advertising campaign for the whole range of materials offered through this web site. These now include almost 200 videos across 18 different series, 17 books, and hundreds of podcasts.

I thank those of you who have been following this work over the last ten years, and those who have recently signed on as subscribers. May God continue to bless you in all that you. do in His Name. Amen. Glory be to God for all things! Amen!
