From time to time, Pastor Mark writes theological position papers, articles and sermons that seek to provide clarity and context on critical issues pertaining to faith, doctrine and conduct. Some of these materials were written for the local newspaper. Others have been written to clarify questions members have raised in an adult Bible class.
