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 We usually do not publish letters written in response to other letters.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 13 to 19 July 2015

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.

Better Late than Never

I come from the tradition of Methodist hymn singing but now very much a part of Church of England - hymns for me, capture the call and desire to worship with body, mind and spirit, offering to God the cry of my heart (in joy and in sorrow) and to experience Him draw from me the response of my love and dedication.

There are a couple of hymns and I'd be hard pressed to choose just one.:
The God of love my shepherd is (t. University) This has got to be the best hymn version of Psalm 23. Written by George Herbert.
Forth in thy name O Lord I go (C Wesley)(t. Song 34 Orlando Gibbons) I think the match of text and tune has to be one of the best.
