"As a lifelong Anglican ... I was so happy to read the story of Don Cherry ['The irreverent, reverent Don Cherry', Dec. 2013, p. 1], this widely respected, well-known public figure, telling of his Christian beliefs". "I have been shocked by the condemnation of your correspondents for featuring this story and by the swipe at Don's love of the 'Book of Common Prayer'. I don't like hockey violence, but it is an intense, physical sport played by tough athletes, and Don supports this part of the game as well as the finer skills required. Does this make him a bad Christian ? Can no hockey players or coaches be good Christians ?" "With relentless secularism, Christianity increasingly risks being seen by the population as largely irrelevant to modern sophisticated society. We need to surprise and interest ordinary folk and have them think or rethink their attitudes to Christian beliefs and churchgoing. In our modern society, famous people have tremendous influence, so the more the Christian beliefs of those such as Don are publicized, the more fertile ground we people who work in the parishes will have to sow seeds in".
