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 We usually do not publish letters written in response to other letters.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 15 — 21 August 2016

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.

An AO reader pines for up to date news

I like to regularly visit Anglicans Online and I often spend a few minutes clicking on the new sites noted each week and especially the links to parishes. Invariably there is a definite similarity, or 'feel', between them all. Another sense of being Anglican? The only negative comment I would make is that more often than not the parish site which comes on screen is out of date, often by a long way! As you would expect there is a huge variety of web sites in both content, colour, size and image - showing the huge potential for using this media as a way of proclaiming the good news. Please though, can we have up to date news!

Ed.: While we strive to keep our parish listings up to date, there are many of them, and we (alas) have no say in how parishes decide to set up their websites! But if any readers know of updated websites or new parish listings, we'd love for them to use our form to tell us about those changes.
