Letter writing does seem to be a lost art in the era of texting, email and social media, doesn’t it? For that very reason, receiving a handwritten letter or note is quite special, like receiving a gift.
Who in your life needs a letter of encouragement today? Have you told someone how much you admire the ministry in which they are engaged? Whose baptism can you celebrate? To whom do you owe a debt of gratitude? A woman who mentored you in the faith? And if those ideas aren’t enough, there are plenty of bloggers (like this one) who can offer up other letter writing ideas.
The English poet and Anglican cleric John Dunne wrote that “more than kisses, letters mingle souls.” It’s time to mingle some souls! Sit down and write that letter.
