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 We usually do not publish letters written in response to other letters.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 15 to 21 July 2013

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.

There are often comments about our front-page letters on the Anglicans Online Facebook page. You might like to have a look.

Letter to the editor

Thank you very much for your letter celebrating la Fête nationale, as it is known in France, by pointing to the over 4 million francophone Anglicans around the world. Merci beaucoup for mentioning le Réseau francophone de la Communion anglicane, which attempts to link them together, and for the historic support that Anglicans Online has given le Réseau.

And mesi anpil for mentioning Ayiti, the largest diocese of the Episcopal Church (USA?).

To answer your question as to what holds us all together, not just francophones, hispanophones, sinophones, lusitanophiones, swahili speakers, so many more speakers, and — oh, yes — the varieties of English spoken around the world, one could (with some veracity) answer... Anglicans Online! But perhaps "The Chicago-Lambeth Quadrilateral and the Prayer Book Tradition" might be more orthodox...

Finally, we will find each other again la « semaine prochaine », n'est-ce pas?
