Lunchtime Forum for Seminary Students and Faculty

See attachment for details.

SSF October Prayer Mission

The Power of Prayer goes beyound walls, prison bars and even phyiscal, spiritual and political borders.

Places like North Korea, China and Iraq have a strong hold against religious freedom but the Power of the Holy Spirit is not frail nor is He under any jurisdiction, therefore we are praying all through October for the pouring down of the Holy Spirit through visions and dreams in North Korea. Will you join us in this and future prayer missions.

"And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come". Matthew 24:14

Sponsored by the Seminary Student Forum, Korean Group and Seminary Clubs.

Email us about your prayer experiences at SSF@andrews.edu

 

A Change in the Dining Service's Sabbath Policy

Guests of Dining Services,

As a result of a partnership between the Administration of Andrews University and the Dining Services Management Team seeking to more properly honor the Sabbath Day, cash transactions on the Sabbath will no longer be an option in Dining Services after October 26, 2013.

As always, we offer the option to purchase pre-paid Café Cards to all of our guests to allow them to prepare ahead for dining in the café on Sabbath. These cards are available in any amount and can be purchased through the Dining Services Office or the Cashier station during the week.

The Sabbath is a special and holy day, set apart from all other days of the week, and this partnership seeks to not only honor the day, but to provide the ability to prepare in advance. We know that our guests view the Sabbath as a treasured time of the week and a central component of their faith. These choices strengthen and bond us together as a faith community. We will continue to accept credit and debit cards for our guests who have traveled to visit our campus, but their use is discouraged.

When you decide to acquire your Café Card, please visit the Dining Services Office Monday - Thursday 9:00 AM to 5:30 PM or on Friday from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM. You may also call us at 269-471-3161.

We appreciate your understanding and your support and look forward to continuing to serve you for all your dining needs. Your questions or concerns are welcomed and can be answered by contacting the number above.

Blessings to you,

Andrews University Administration

Monthly Camera Club Meeting

Berrien Springs Camera Club Monthly Meeting
Wednesday, Oct. 2, at 7 p.m.
Berrien Springs Public Library

            As usual, there will be two select topics for the month. In addition, “Nature” is always an acceptable category, as are “Open” (any subject) and “Portraits.” The two select categories for the October competition are “Action” and “Cracks and Crevices.” “Nature” photos are to show nothing from human hands (no wires, fences, cultivated flowers, etc.). Thus a member can submit images in any of five categories or a combination thereof, though extra points are given for acceptances in the two select categories.


            Prints, at least 5" x 7" in size, should be mounted, with the title and photographer's name on the back. Digital submissions, however, need to be sent in ahead, with instructions for submitting them on the club’s blog site: http://berrienspringscameraclub.blogspot.com/
            Any member may submit up to 10 projected images and/or 10 prints for the competition. Pictures are shown one at a time, and three judges score them by machine. The total points determine whether a photo is rated “honor,” “acceptance,” or “out.”  From the “honors,” a Slide-of-the-Month and a Print-of-the-Month are selected.  All are welcome, either to observe or to join. Refreshments will be served.

Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month

Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month at Andrews University

National Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15 to October 15) recognizes the contributions made and the important presence of Hispanic and Latino Americans to the United States and celebrates the group's heritage and culture. Hispanics have had a profound and positive influence on our country through their strong commitment to family, faith, hard work and service. They have enhanced and shaped our national character with centuries-old traditions that reflect the multiethnic and multicultural customs of their community.

Hispanic Heritage Month, whose roots go back to 1968, begins each year on September 15, the anniversary of independence of five Latin American countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. Mexico, Chile and Belize also celebrate their independence days during this period and Columbus Day (Día de la Raza) is October 12. The term Hispanic or Latino, refers to Puerto Rican, South or Central American, or other Spanish culture or origin regardless of race.

Adventist Forum Presents: The Religious Roots of the First Amendment

Adventist Forum presents "The Religious Roots of the First Amendment:
Dissenting Protestants and the Separation of Church and State."  The
presentation is by Nicholas P. Miller, Associate Professor of Church
History and Director of the International Religious Liberty Institute at
Andrews University.  Come to Chan Shun Hall on the campus of Andrews
University Saturday, September 28, 2013 at 3:30 p.m. and join in the
discussion.

Nicholas P. Miller is a lawyer (JD, Columbia University) who has worked
on a number of cases before the U.S. Supreme Court. He is currently
an associate professor of church history at Andrews University Seminary,
where he also directs the International Religious Liberty Institute.

His book "The Religious Roots of the First Amendment: Dissenting
Protestants and the Separation of Church and State" was published by
Oxford University Press in May 2012. Miller argues that traditional
understandings of the genesis of the separation of church and state rest
on assumptions about 'Enlightenment' and the republican ethos of
citizenship. 

Professor Miller is also an editor of Homosexuality, Marriage, and the
Church: Biblical, Counseling, and Religious Liberty Issues published by
Andrews University Press.

Adventist Forum is open to the public.  All are welcome.  For
information, contact Art Robertson at robertsa2@earthlink.net or call

Young Adults are especially invited to the 2013 GODencounters Conference, September 19-21, 2013, held at Arlington Seventh-day Adventist Church, 4409 Pleasantview Drive, Arlington, TX 76017.  Opening night is Thursday, September 19th at 7:00 PM, featuring pastor and executive coach, Sam McKee. The conference culminates with a free concert, 7:00 PM, Saturday evening, September 21st with The Digital Age.  For more information go to www.YGchurch.com

From Portland, Oregon, McKee has spoken to youth and young adults in colleges and churches in Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Denver, Chicago, and Australia. He's coached leaders from Columbia University, Google, Microsoft and Facebook. A former newspaper reporter and party guy, Sam became a Christian during his college years through a homeless man and an energetic African-American Church near Chicago. Now he loves to share the joy he’s found in Christ with anyone who’s searching for something more.

Sam served as a youth pastor and lead snowboarder at churches in Colorado and California before becoming the senior pastor of the Sunnyvale Adventist Church (CA), which serves the people of Silicon Valley. His church was full of young adults, many of whom worked at high-tech companies like Google, Apple and Intel. The church launched 36 Life Groups around the Bay Area and touched many lives. In 2008, he moved to the Portland, Oregon area to plant a church for people who are far from church but hungry for God.

In his free time, Sam enjoys hockey, football, snowboarding and especially hanging out with his surfer/pastor/actress wife. They keep busy rafting, snowboarding and exploring the beautiful Northwest with their two children, who have more energy than the sun.

Heritage Singers at Howard Performing Arts Center

"Our main focus when we sing at concerts is Jesus, Jesus, Jesus - that's it," Mace says, speaking by telephone from the group's Placerville, Calif., offices. "We're more than singers. We have a message, but want it to be joyful. When you know Jesus, you should be the happiest people in the world."

The Herald-Palladium interviewed Heritage Singer founding member Max Mace for a story about the opening concert of the 2013-14 10th anniversary season of the Howard Performing Arts Center.  Read the full story here.
