When dealing with most groups I have found them reasonable and willing to talk sensibly about the group but that is not true of at least one individual in the group.

With The Local Church I have received a number of frustrating anonymous emails. Which does honestly lead me to ask, “Why all the cloak and dagger if this is Chriistian evagelical church?

The latest I received yesterday giving me until 4 January to reply but the only way I can reply is like this because again it is anonymous.

My answer is:

I would love to communicate, at first by email. Would you answer a number of basic questions please?

This will not be published on the website without the agreement of the writer.

I would indeed like to publish a positive article with the reply to the questions but of course you may not want that.

I await an email with an adress I can reply to.
