Bible is our best example of art of letter writing

In case you haven't noticed it, the writing of letters seems to be going the way of the dodo.

Oh, we still communicate [to some degree, at least] via email.

Then, too, some people seem to have the knack of spending an amazing amount of time on the telephone [might even be doing a bit of gossiping].

That does qualify as communicating.

But what I'm suggesting is that we need to re-learn the forgotten art of letter writing.

Those of you who know me personally are perhaps making the mental analogy of the pot calling the kettle black.

Confession, they say, is good for the soul, and I must confess that it has been too long since I sat down to write a warm, personal letter.

Rather than really opening up to others via the writing of a letter, I have definitely become addicted to the simplicity and brevity of email.

The very speed and thrift of email can be so appealing.

Why is this?

Is it perhaps the fact that we are caught up 'in the fast lane' in these days of instant everything?

That may very well be true.
