|From Meridian Magazine
Kevin Christensen advised me that David Larsen observes on his Heavenly Ascents blog that changes at Meridian have broken the links to these essays, and sent me some PDF files to upload to this site. The document titles might not match the titles listed below, which were used when Meridian first published them on the web, and Kevin has also made some editorial changes since then. — Webmaster
