Good links to include on your site

It’s easy to include great links on your website. We’re developing a list of links that you can copy and paste. You can choose from links to many diocesan and Episcopal church sources, prayer sites, bible translations, thoughtful blogs and learning sites. There are traditional Episcopal resources like Forward Day by Day and the Book of Common Prayer and intriguing new resources like Bible Gateway, Pray-as-You-Go, ChurchNext, Episcopal Café, and many more. You can provide links directly to these resources, or a link to our webpage where they will all be listed. For more information and a list, contact Jane Hartwell at 207.772.1953 x129 or jhartwell@episcopalmaine.org 

Ideas for improving your website with lots of examples

Jane Hartwell has also put together this list of links to parish websites that do a good job at various things and suggestions for welcoming language. Lots of other good ideas too. This too is a work in progress and will be updated as new ideas and resources are found.
