This Week’s Update – Jan 30th

This is to keep readers and viewers updated on the planned changes to the Anglican Internet Church web site. As announced, I am exploring creating a tax-exempt trust to operate the site. The first step is a preliminary meeting with an attorney scheduled for early February. The trust would be funded to ensure that necessary fees to the host of the site, the host site for our videos, the host site for our podcasts would be paid annually, keeping the site’s many unique resources available to the public indefinitely.

Another aspect of these changes is an on-going update to all the AIC Bookstore Publications and to our Christian Education, Bible Study and Seasonal Videos to include accurate links to our current vendors and eliminate obsolete content. To this end, I have now completed the first stage of bookstore updates. All the books will have up-to-date information about the books and now to access them. I am hopeful of completing these update before the end of February. Planned updates to The Twelve Days of Christmas video series await recording of corrections and additions, with completion expected before the end of March.

Thanks for your continued interest. Preservation of and continued access to traditional Christian teaching materials is critical in this era of assault upon Christianity in particular and “civilization” in general.

May God bless you in all that you do in His Name! Amen. Glory be to God for all things! Amen!

The Next Step

The next step in the evolution of the Anglican Internet Church is in the works. I’m exploring the creation of a charitable trust which would operate the site into the indefinite future, preserving public access to the library of resources available through the site. The trust would be funded to ensure that all the necessary sites and links are maintained and freely available to the public. I’ve asked several trusted people to serve as trustees. There are some technical issues still to be resolved. Under the proposed plan all the site content would remain in my name with my copyrights in effect.

Meanwhile, I continue to upgrade various assets on the site, including a 2022 edition of The Twelve Days of Christmas video series. The program is getting a facelift, with many new slides and a format making it consistent with all the other upgraded video series in the site. Nearly all the changes to the files are complete and only need the conversion into iMovie format and final uploading. I’m hopeful this can be completed in January and February. In the coming months, I plan to upgrade all the earlier bookstore publications to eliminate dated content, references to social media sites no longer used and cross-references to the New Testament series of five books.

I thank all of you who have supported the site over the last ten years, as it evolved into a unique set of Christian study resources. May God continue to bless you in all that you do in His Name. Amen!

Glory be to God for all things.
