there is an e-mail contact at the bottom of the letter. I sent them this comment:
And why has your diocese threatened to walk apart from the rest of the Anglican communion? Your actions are a reprehensible witness to the world. Do you think Jesus would have done what you have done? I don't think so.
Why not say, as we do to close every service, "Go in peace to love and serve the Lord?"
