With this issue, we begin a three-part series ofback-and-forth letters between two elderly twin sisters, Faith Elaine Linton and Joyce Gladwell, on the topic of homosexuality. Elaine, who is preparing to give a seminar on the subject, begins, to which Joyce responds. Joyce and Elaine were born in 1931 in Jamaica. They were educated at St. Hilda's, an Anglican boarding school for girls. Both studied at the University College, London, England. Joyce and her husband Graham emigrated to Canada in 1969. They are members of Waterloo North Mennonite Church, Waterloo, Ont, and are the parents of Malcolm Gladwell, the best-selling author of such books as Blink and Tipping Point Elaine, married to Ivon Linton, returned to Runaway, Jamaica, to teach, and after retirement she had a full lay ministry. She was awarded an honorary doctorate from the Caribbean Graduate School of Theology in 2000. Both Joyce and Elaine have children and grandchildren. Joyce's autobiographical Brown Face Big Master was published by InterVarsity Press in 1969 and republished by MacMillan in 2004. Elaine's What the Preacher Forgot to Tell Me: Identity and Gospel in Jamaica was published by Castle Quay Books in 2009.
