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 We usually do not publish letters written in response to other letters.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 5 to 11 October 2009

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.

No spelunking allowed

Oh, no, no no! You do not slink off to your cave, leaving us without your wonderful sense of focus! So many times do you remind the Communion, and those of us 'outside' of it, of the real concerns at the heart of our faith! In such a literate, charming, educational manner!

No, you do not get to slink off. Even now, the Spirit is moving hands to write checks, voices to sing your praises to all! You must stay with us!

And besides, it's dark, smoky, and sooty in the cave. . .

Ed: Thank you, Lyle Clark, for your kind words. As you will have seen from the letter, we met our goal and will be here every week, please God, for decades more.

Letter to the editor

I am afraid reading AO is too much like watching PBS (Public Broadcasting network in the US) and listening to NPR (National Public Radio). One tends to forget that content is not free and bills must be paid. Being reminded of that is not such a bad thing; I pray adequate support is raised.

Ed: Thank you, Chaplain Rindhal, for your letter. With your help and that of other kind readers, we raised the funds we need to continue well into the future!
