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 We usually do not publish letters written in response to other letters.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 30 November to 6 December 2009

Like all letters to the editor everywhere, these letters express 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.

Breathing together

We have a bunch of parishes who have jumped in to the Advent Conspiracy stuff. It is an initiative that comes out of the emergent church in the States that has gone viral. It is really quite good. My own parish is using their DVD-based reousrce for their advent study.

Strife indeed

Why didn't you list Episcopal Relief and Development instead of Heifer Project? They both do the same thing, but at least we should support the effort of ERD. It is one place where among all the strife caused by the Episcopal Church, we can come together to do "all such good works as God has prepared for us to walk in." I do most of my Christmas shopping there ahead so that I can focus on Advent.

(Editor: As you point out, Episcopal Relief and Development does wonderful work. We can't list everything, and we listed the Heifer Project because it seemed to us to be more international, less USA-centric.)

Earlier letters

We launched our 'Letters to AO' section on 11 May 2003. All published letters are in our archives.
