The Pastor's Pen

The Pastor's Pen missives had their beginning as a weekly bulletin article for the Oak Avenue Baptist Church in Florahome, Florida where I served as bi-vocational pastor from January 1998 to November 2000. I began writing these in the fall of 1998. Shortly thereafter I began publishing them on this website, and continue to do so. It is my prayer that they will be a blessing to your life!

A perusal of the Pastor's Pen repository (500+ articles) will reveal that many articles were directly tied to current events at the time of writing. Others represent spiritual and or doctrinal themes. But all have a biblical foundation with interpretations and applications governed by the context.

Pens are groupd by year of writing, beginning with the current year. Documents designated 'PDF' consist of multiple Pens in a series. The last section consists of links to Archive documentscompilations of Pens from a specific year or time period. Archive documents are in PDF format and open in a new window.
