Endnotes

Most sermons (staring January 2000) have worship services also posted online.
If the sermon has a manuscript, the link to the worship is on that webpage.
If the sermon is recorded & posted only as an mp3, the worship link is on this page.
I generally stopped using a manuscript (noted as "no ms" below) in 2005. Links will take you to worship material.
