1. This forum section is the place for the “none of the above” topics (postings) – not technical, maybe campanalogical but not carillon-related. Comments about sleigh bells or Russian Zvon ringing would fit there. If a topic is started here that seems to fit more in the “News” category (prominent carillonneur dies, for instance) or one of the other categories, the moderator may move it to that forum section. This is a good place to put things like mentioning some old movie that had a carillon in it, for example – not news, and not one of the other categories.

Steven Ball's article RE legalities of church bell ringing

I think some churches are losing their core values and therefore failing to actively assert those core values in their communities. The connection between church and the surrounding community is eroded. People do not think that the church applies to their lives, so they do not know, or care, about what the church bells MEAN! If churches do not want to get sued for ringing their carillons, they must do more to assert their relevance to the neighboring lives and help people to be valued participants in their neighborhood church!
The legalities are very difficult and can twist everyone into knots!
Sounds like the bottom line is that whoever has the most money and clout will win.
However, if our values are not asserted, the next generations LOSE!
