FROM THE ARCHIVES
every scribe who has become a disciple of the
kingdom of heaven is like a head of a household, who
brings out of his treasure things new and old." Mt. 13:52 .
First Love Ministry
originated as a hand written circulation letter
writing ministry in 1987-88 as the
American prophetic movement was entering
prominence and evangelical Christianity was at its
zenith of influence in American politics. In these
letter-articles Chris Anderson imparts from
his instructional prophetic well to a relational
circuit of "wilderness" saints stretching from
the Carolinas and the Midwest to Maritime
Canada, and later toward the established church.
In this collection from the basement of this 30
year "wine cellar," you will find writings both
instructional and devotional. The personal flavor
of many of these letter articles has been
retained, though full names of the
original recipients have been withheld. The
articles are presented here in the sequence they
were written and include those from this early period
already featured in the main index.

mortgaged brick-and-mortar building in town? Are you
