AMSTERDAM ‚ÄĒ Dutch postal company TPG has decided to send all anonymous letters addressed to God to the country's evangelical broadcasting company. Up to now, the Deity's mail from the Netherlands has ended up in the wastepaper basket.
Members of the aftercare division of the EO broadcasting company will pray for the people who write the letters, clergyman Cees van Velzen, of the division, said on Monday.
The arrangement was initiated by Andre Rouvoet, the leader of the small Christian party ChristenUnie....
While, I would wonder about the effectiveness of prayers for anonymous letter senders, this may be a positive move, if any of the senders identify themselves later and they can have a Christian contract. I know nothing about the Dutch -- Christian -- organization, or the small -- Christian -- political party in the Netherlands. I would have to say that Christianity and "small" is a typical Christian characteristic in the Netherlands. :-(
