These letters (emails actually) have been sent from our pastor to our church family.  These essays were not originally intended for the general public and, for that reason, may represent topics or perspectives that are unique to our region or church.  We use this medium to further explain practices or theologies held at CTK, especially ones we don't get to spend time talking about.  We also use these letters to help our people interpret issues or experiences they are having to confront in the outside world.  These are only written periodically, when it seems appropriate to hear from our pastor on a particular issue.
