To the Editors:
I'm thrilled by your material and hope to learn so I can educate others in my church. At this time I'd love to have a list of Episcopal, or other traditional churches who espouse vegetarianism.
Also, the protagonist in my novel, Animal Instinct, is lead by her
faith. She is a reporter who becomes an animal activist and miraculously finds a job in the movement. It is her faith that leads her there and spirits her through tough times, tough times brought on by a tyrannical boss and the work itself. It is based on my years working in the movement as a staff writer for a national organization, however Animal Instinct goes beyond my experience to movement history and hopes for it's future.
If you are interested in reviewing it, I will gladly send it to you.
Yours in Christ,
Dorothy H. Hayes

Reply from Frank and Mary Hoffman
Thank you for writing and for your kind and encouraging words.
We don't believe that any of the traditional main-line churches were founded upon vegetarian principles; however the founder of the Methodist Church, John Wesley, was a vegetarian, and knew that animals have souls.
We would very much like to receiving a copy of your book to read and review. Our address is: The Mary T. and Frank L. Hoffman Family Foundation, Unit 1012, 121 Tammy Trail, Athens, NY 12015-3707.
In the Love of the Lord,
Frank and Mary
