One thought on “
St. Paul’s UCC Westminster, MD

  1. Thank you, thank you, Rev. Dr. Marty Kuchma, for writing THE best “letter to the editor” to appear in the Carroll County Times so far this century. This compassionate, reasoned plea for expecting better of our elected officials is a breath of fresh, honest, spot-on air!
    Jesus never wanted private “clubs” of politicians to achieve their political ends by claiming that they had a monopoly on a certain “brand” of Christianity.
    Please write again!!
