“The Link” Articles

Some articles that I wrote each for the MPC (Monroeville Presbyterian Church) newsletter called “The Link” are posted below. The articles engage various topics of interest (biblical, theological, exegetical, historical), sometimes responding to questions of congregants, and sometimes addressing the situation of the community. Enjoy!
