Recently I challenged myself and others to write one letter every day of one month to a bold woman they know or admire. Beyond the discipline of daily writing, I most enjoyed the discipline that came with thinking about bold women I know.
All the women I wrote to are bold in their own way. It was great to celebrate their boldness and to remind them that their boldness makes a difference in our world.
Letters are important expressions of our feelings and opinions. Taking the time to write a letter tells the recipient that you care, that your relationship is important. As one letter-writing aficionado has said, sending a letter is the next best thing to showing up at someone’s door.
In Women of the ELCA, we are all about building and nurturing community, and what better way to do that than with a handwritten letter?
