Paper Pulpit

...had its beginning May 9, 2008, when the first weekly article appeared in the Fort Worth Star Telegram. Alvin Jennings is writer of the sermons except for occasional selections from others. It is supported by contributions from individual Christians, churches of Christ and donations received from rebinding old Bibles.

For any good you may derive from our humble efforts in editing, writing and publishing this site, we shall be thankful and shall ascribe unto God all "the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus unto all generations" (Ephesians 3:21).
