Letters to AO

EVERY WEEK WE PUBLISH a selection of letters we receive in response to something you've read at Anglicans Online. Stop by and have a look at what other AO readers are thinking.

Alas, we cannot publish every letter we receive. And we won't publish letters that are anonymous, hateful, illiterate, or otherwise in our judgment do not benefit the readers of Anglicans Online. We usually do not publish letters written in response to other letters.

We edit letters to conform with standard AO house style for punctuation, but we do not change, for example, American spelling to conform to English orthography. On occasion we'll gently edit letters that are too verbose in their original form. Email addresses are included when the authors give permission to do so.

If you'd like to respond to a letter whose author does not list an email, you can send your response to Anglicans Online and we'll forward it to the writer.

Letters from 2 to 9 January 2005

Like all letters to the editor everywhere, these letters are the opinions of the letter writers and not Anglicans Online. We publish letters that we think will be of interest to our readers, whether we agree with them or not. If you'd like to write a letter of your own, click here.

Starting it all

This would be a good weekend to remember with thanks the congregation of Chislet, St. Mary-the-Virgin: they are celebrating a special parish anniversary - one thousand four hundred years.

Chislet is the oldest organised parish in England and from there the parish system spread to the rest of Christendom. The parish was set up in a charter from a king of Kent just eight years after St. Augustine arrived in the county, he landed at Ebbsfleet in the parish of Minster-in-Thanet, St. Mary-the-Virgin which is the mother church of the group of parishes to which Chislet now belongs.

Can you help?

The Ghanaian Anglican Community in Greater Toronto area for the past year is trying to come together to worship as a group. We are humbly looking for the 'Ancient and Modern Hymn Book and its Tonic Solfa' to buy. Thanks and God bless.
