The following downloads are essays and sermon manuscripts I have written over the past several years. I consider myself a lifelong learner and concede that my thinking and my understanding is in flux (point: my positions are subject to change). I invite you to discuss or question anything I have written and am hopeful we might be able to learn together.
These files are in .pdf format and require the adobe reader (or application compatible with adobe .pdf file extension) to read them. You are free to use and distribute these essays as you wish; I only ask that you give proper credit and citations for anything used. I have tried to footnote and/or annotate citations in my essays and sermons; if I have missed a proper citation, please call my attention to it that I might correct any oversights.
