Dear President Oscarson,

We are writing to thank you for your talk at the General Women’s Meeting.  We appreciated your emphasis on sisterhood. You stated that women should not let differences come between them. Your message gave us hope in the midst of all of the negative messages that we have received recently.

This morning one of our volunteers checked the messages that Ordain Women receives on our Facebook page and saw that among the hate mail was a letter of apology. We have never received one of those before. The writer said that she listened to your talk last night and regretted some of the negative comments she had made on our Facebook page. We’ve also heard of a few private apologies made to others of our supporters.

Your words made some reconsider their hurtful words and actions toward us, your sisters, and we are grateful for that.

Yours sincerely,

Nancy Ross
