An Open Letter to Anne Rice

My open letter to Anne Rice, an essay on the church, its flaws, and why you can't be a Jesus-person alone in a corner, is up at the Episcopal Café.

Feel free to circulate prn.

It is very nice, and I hope you don't mind my posting a Zen-Boody response to it on my own blog.

Oh, lovely, lovely, Algernon. A fine Dharma lesson. Thank you. I will refer people to your blog. (I am thinking of a friend of mine who has a serious sitting practice but shies away from Sangha.)

I am going to post a link on Facebook.

THANK YOU for your thoughtful reflections on Ann's grand gestures!

I think you are saying just what we need to hear...although I sure do groove on the new cybermonasticism at Virtual Abbey and the like!

Dear Fr. Buehler, thank you for writing. I'm all for cyber-spirituality when it fosters community or helps solitary prayer. Blessings!

Dear Ms. Bevills, this blog does not support commercial ventures of any kind, even Christian ones. I wish you the best in your efforts and will be happy to visit your site when I have a chance to acquaint myself with it.
