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 We usually do not publish letters written in response to other letters.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 the week of 3 to 9 March 2014

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.

Mugs, memories, and community (see our edition from 2 March 2014)

I have a large mug with a funny horse design. My sister was dying last fall and when I went to see her for the last time she said to me you must take home some memories. I looked in her cupboard and there it was. Both of us were long time horse lovers and horse owners. Now I use it often and I remember her and her sense of humour.

When living in Paris last year, I walked every day on my way to university past a shop that sold pottery, icons, and rosaries made by monks and nuns. In the window was a beautiful mug that was the perfect shape to cup with both hands, and the patterns reminded me of butterflies. It was one of the coldest, snowiest winters Paris ever had, and as I passed the shop I saw this mug and thought about drinking chocolat chaud and was warmed. I finally decided to get it, and now each time I use it in the United States I am reminded of my time at the American Cathedral in Paris, the friends I made in France, and how the many cups of hot chocolate warmed me up in that cold, cold winter.
