Letter from Dorothy Hayes About Vegetarianism in Churches - 15 Nov 2006

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

Dear Dorothy:

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:

In the Love of the Lord,

Frank and Mary
