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 We usually do not publish letters written in response to other letters.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 Canadian 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 18 to 24 June 2007

Like all letters to the editor everywhere, these letters are the opinions of the 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.

AO on Fifth Avenue

Thank you for sharing with us something of your experience at '...Saint Thomas Church on Fifth Avenue, where the full complement of AO's editorial staff gathered in person for the first time today, kneeling, praying, singing and communing from the same pew.'

And thank you for the time and effort all of you have put into Anglicans Online over the years and up to this point. AO has been there for me in those years as it has been for so many Anglicans at even greater distances around the world. I hope your time together in one place joins you all in a celebration of a great and worthwhile effort.

I am so pleased that you shared something of the flavor of your gathering with us. By its very location and prominence, many of us have associations with Saint Thomas, Fifth Avenue. Many of us have visited there, or know it at least by reputation or by electronic means from afar. Your choice of such a well known spot for worship and your use of it for a reflection on this week's opening page has helped us to gather in spirit with you there.
