Sunday Posts

I have printed a “Sunday Letter” to share with my congregations (each week) for almost 25 years. The original letters were written on a Sunday morning and printed off on a copy machine…in time to hand out when people arrived at church.  They still get distributed on Sunday mornings where I serve.  But they also get sent through the Internet now on Sunday afternoons…around the world…to over 300 people.  Click the links below to check out the letters:
