Christian Writing

“To those who have been called, who are loved by God the Father and kept by Jesus Christ: Mercy, peace and love be yours in abundance.  Dear friends, although I was very eager to write to you about the salvation we share, I felt I had to write and urge you to contend for the faith that was once for all entrusted to the saints.”
Jude 1:1-3

Doug has been blessed to share his faith and God’s truth through both reflective and creative writing. Reflective writings are set forth in the monthly articles he contributes to his city’s newspaper, the Kingsport Times-News (see below). Both reflective and creative writings are set forth in Doug’s 340 page book, Moon in the Darkness: 100 Reflections on the Kingdom of God.
