This is the theological blog of Arjen Vreugdenhil, candidate pastor at the Canadian Reformed Church of Chatham, Ontario.

The articles of this blog serve various functions. You will find here sermons I preached and notes of classes I taught, as well as reflections on a variety of topics. My theological interests are broad, ranging from church music to Biblical linguistics, from philosophy to practical Christianity.

About the name of this site: Stoicheia is a Greek word meaning “letters” as well as “principles”. In the Bible, Heb 5:12 uses this word to describe the basic principles of Christian doctrine.
