Unspeakables: Out with the old, in with the…old?

Unspeakables: Out with the old, in with the…old?

I was recently told that the General Conference has dubbed 2010 the Year of Lay Evangelism. This follows directly behind the 2009 Year of Pastoral evangelism, which was preceded by the 2008 Year of something Evangelism whose specific focus I cannot remember. All I know for sure is that it involved some series of mass […]

“United We Serve”

“United We Serve”

While we ate lunch from the back of my parents’ SUV in the parking garage, my friend shared “It’s a message I’ve been waiting to hear for a long time.”   Pastor Henry Wright spoke from the heart that morning for the Southwestern Union’s “United We Serve” at the George R. Brown Convention Center in […]

Snaps @ SDA SNL

Snaps @ SDA SNL

Smooth eloquence flows from educated lips behind a familiar lone mic. Words bring images to mind, and images bring words to life. The simple strum of the guitar strikes a chord of deep concentration. And the show begins. I heard about the Saturday night church through some friends back home, and penciled it in for […]

Adventists + Dating // OVERRATED

Adventists + Dating // OVERRATED

Overrated. That’s the word I use to describe this whole discussion. OVERRATED. Seriously, the social club that is the SDA church has become like the English nobility of old when it comes to the topic of marriage. We’re inbred. We all go to Andrews, Oakwood, Loma Linda, Southern, Babcock, Valley View and then marry each […]

The Hot Seat – unveiled

The Hot Seat – unveiled

So if you missed it last Friday night, you should really feel “too bad so sad.”  We rolled out the big blue box filled with IKEA gear and transformed probably one of the ugliest spots in htown into a fabulous, sleek, hip, & happening cafe.  Singles slowly trekked across town, over the bridge, and through […]

Lesson 13: Confidence in the Prophetic Gift

Lesson 13: Confidence in the Prophetic Gift

“uninspired,” he said.  That’s the reason I find myself discussing this week’s lesson.  The original author assigned to post Lesson13 didn’t end up doing so, and our backup after studying the lesson found himself in a position I now can empathize with.  I started writing late last night and quickly had to click the “Save […]

Relationships

Proverbs 30:18-19 says that; There are four things that are too Mysterious for me to understand An eagle flying in the sky A snake moving on the rock A ship finding its way over the sea And a man and woman falling in love Just the same way the writer of the book of proverbs […]

Lesson 4: The Remnant

Lesson 4: The Remnant

This week’s lesson repeatedly talks about the two characteristics that will distinguish God’s remnant church from the rest. We are told that one of those characteristics is that the remnant will “keep His commandments”. That phrase was said numerous times, but I think that it must be explained further. What does it mean to “keep” […]
