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 We usually do not publish letters written in response to other letters.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 29 October to 4 November 2012

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.

Prayer for all victims of natural disasters

It is always a call to prayer when we hear of our sisters and brothers in Christ under threat from natural phenomena. We think of the eathquakes in New Zealand and not so long ago the devastating bushfires that took 173 lives here. These disasters remind us of the frailty of all flesh and our constant need to rely on God as our creator, saviour and comforter.

May the Lord be with those in the path of the hurricane.

You lightning and clouds, bless the Lord

The Benedicite Omnia Opera is one of my favorite pieces of choral music to sing; setting by Leo Sowerby. This week has been hard for millions of people here in the US. The piece by Sowerby is multi-layered, a display of joy upon gladness... and thoroughly appropriate for this latest disaster.
