Professor's Book Used in Romanian Ministry

Aventist students in Romania have decided to share a book of drawings with their classmates that place Jesus in New York in hope that the unusual illustrations will prompt people to reach for the Bible for answers.

The Romanian chapter of AMiCUS, an organization that strives to share Jesus with non-Adventist students, chose the book, Jesus of New York: Premonitions of New York Teenager, as its main missionary tool for 2015, and demand has already exceeded the initial print run of 2,500 copies by the Adventist-operated Romanian Publishing House.

The 43 drawings by retired Andrews University professor Greg Constantine are replete with allusions to characters, situations, actions, dialogues, and objects from the gospel stories that the students hope will encourage readers to double-check their literacy of the Bible.

March for Justice at Andrews University

More than 200 students at Andrews University took part in the March for Justice.

“I felt like not being involved was also saying I didn’t care,” said Jevon McAllister, a student at the school. “So I felt like now was the time to get involved and for my voice to be heard.”

For students, this was a chance to lend their voice to a larger movement.

Great Leaps Forward

Although she was born in 1965, Rachel Williams-Smith's story could have been set in the 1800s.

Wearing long dresses and broad-brimmed bonnets, she grew up without modern conveniences like electricity, telephone, radio, television or indoor plumbing. She, along with her two older brothers, was shaped by the extreme religious views of her iron-willed, Vietnam veteran father and practical-minded mother.

Grace Place: Caring for the Community

The Grace Place may be fairly new to the community, but members have already made their presence known with their programs on health, marriage and finances and their regular outreach to South Bend neighborhoods.

The church held its first service in February 2013 in the home they found at the Community Congregational Church, 19671 Cleveland Road in South Bend. The two churches collaborate on joint services and programs at various times during the year. The Grace Place is affiliated with the First Seventh-day Adventist Church in South Bend.

Hyveth Williams, an Andrews University professor, founded the church with the express goal of reaching out to the community. Church members have adopted as their own the neighborhood bordered by Portage Road, Cushing Street and Lincoln Way, going out every two weeks to give away free food and other items, to invite people to come to church and to tell them about the special seminars and programs the church offers.

Mobile Farm Market Puts End to Food Deserts

A mobile farm market is making a difference in Michigan one vegetable at a time. Andrews University said due to its success this summer they are going to expand next year.

According to the USDA, there are four large food deserts in Berrien County. They include a part of Benton Harbor, Niles, Buchanan, and Berrien Springs. Every Monday the market would stop at the Ferry Street Resource Center so residents could buy nutritious food.

One woman said she loved the recipes the dietitian would provide.

Pauline Washington said, "They picked it that morning and they brought it, they were selling it, plus showing us how to cook it!... the grocery store is not close to where I live! nothing is close to where I live!”

Mobile Farm Market Proves Success

Be Healthy Berrien's mobile farm market, operated with Andrews University, had a fruitful first season and will continue to grow, the Berrien County Board of Health heard Wednesday.

Nicki Britten, director of community health planning, reported that 60 percent of survey respondents said they were eating more vegetables as a result of shopping at the mobile market.

The project was launched last summer to sell produce grown at Andrews' student gardens and orchards. The mobile market made stops in low-income neighborhoods in Benton Harbor, Benton Township, Buchanan, Niles and Berrien Springs, where residents have limited access to fresh fruits and vegetables.

The health department and Andrews "consider this a very successful pilot year of this program," Britten said.

Horn Museum to Host Rare Exhibit

At a time when many archaeological museums at religious-affiliated schools in the United States are struggling to add to their displays, the Siegfried Horn Museum at Andrews University (AU) will soon host an exhibit of 48 ancient artifacts, reports the New York Times.

“In recent decades, countries that house remains of the ancient world have become determined to keep archaeological finds within their borders,” explains the New York Times article. Furthermore, small museums often lack “the financial resources to buy works or borrow actively from other collections.” Because of these constraints, Dr. Constance Gane, curator of the Horn Museum and assistant professor of archaeology and Old Testament at AU, told Adventist Today that the museum is thrilled to exhibit the ceramic figurine fragments.

Farm to School Success

Berrien County Juvenile Center food service manager Charity Hackett first took an interest in serving more fresh fruits and vegetables to residents, utilizing a garden at the Center. Since then, the Center has obtained food preservation equipment, developed resident food handling skills training and purchased CSA shares aided by the Michigan Farm to School Grant program. The Berrien County Juvenile Center was one of 21 MI Farm to School Grant recipients in 2014.

In the first year of the farm-to-school initiative, Hackett found difficulty in obtaining small quantities of a variety of produce from many different commercial farm vendors. Working with Michigan State University Extension and the MSU Product Center, the nearby Andrews University’s CSA and market garden program was identified as a reliable source of fresh fruits and vegetables. Bulk apples are purchased from a separate grower.

Horn Museum in New York Times

In a few months, the Siegfried Horn Museum at Andrews University in Berrien Springs, Mich., will exhibit 48 ancient fragments of possibly religious ceramic figures depicting humans and horses. Dating from the 8th to the 6th century B.C., they were excavated over more than a decade ending in 2012 at Tall Jalul in Jordan.

While small, the exhibition, part of a one-year loan agreement with Jordan, will be something of a rarity.

"There is no easy life."

The giant acorns under the chestnut oak trees at Monte Sano State Park in Huntsville, Ala., remind Rachel Williams-Smith of how her family collected them and attempted to make something edible during the year they camped there in a converted school bus. The cliffs behind Monte Sano Lodge are where the family took refuge during the tornado of April 1974. And Williams-Smith smiles when she sees a line of ants marching along.

"The ants were my friends," Williams-Smith said this week, as she gazed at the wooded lot around the Lodge. "I didn't have much else to do - our main curriculum was, as my mother put it, 'Bible and survival.'"

Williams-Smith is chair of the Department of Communication at Andrews University and recently published a book, "Born Yesterday," a telling of the story of her growing up years.

Scholars Discuss Interplay of Faith and Science

Dr. Deborah Haarsma stood in front of the audience at Granger Community Church and described the layers of glaciers that have preserved evidence of 720,000 winters. She presented layers of sedimentary rock that go back millions of years and radiometric dating that puts some earthly rock formations at 3.6 billion years old.

She described her own work as an astronomer, where she studies distant galaxies over a billion lightyears from Earth.

Speaking to a sold-out crowd attending  Michiana Forum on Wednesday evening, Sept. 17, Haarsma was one of four panelists invited to speak about scholarship and reconciling Christian faith with scientific evidence that appears to contradict Biblical teachings.

Other panelists took different approaches, but also spoke of reconciliation between science and faith.

Dr. Roy Gane, a professor of Hebrew Bible and ancient near eastern languages at Andrews University, spoke of the importance of recognizing both the Bible and scientific evidence as legitimate sources of knowledge.

Fusing Traditions

Petar Jankovic is the rarest of musicians.

While the Serbian-born classical guitarist traveled the world performing solo shows, he longed to share that spotlight with other players.

"I just had this sheer desire to play with other people on stage, but classical guitarists just don't have that many chances to play with other ensembles," Jankovic says by telephone from his home in Bloomington, Ind. "At one point, I just got a little tired of traveling alone and playing alone. I always liked chamber music, where you can collaborate with other people, so I wanted to come up with something to fill that void."

That something is the Petar Jankovic Ensemble, which performs Sunday at Andrews University to open the Howard Performing Arts Center's 2014-15 season.

But Batson uses a wheelchair, and it's difficult for her to get to a grocery store. Having the mobile market make a weekly stop at Red Bud Ministries at 708 Red Bud Trail in Buchanan, across the street from her home, has been a godsend.

Lessons in Leadership

What makes a good leader?

It's a question Skip Bell, professor of leadership studies and director of the Doctor of Ministry program at Andrews University's Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary, has pondered more than most.

Bell, who is also founding director of the Christian Leadership Center at Andrews, has traveled the world speaking about leadership, proudly proclaiming that he has taught the subject on every continent except Antarctica. About four years ago, however, Bell began brooding about the literary void on what the Bible actually says on the topic.

Alumnus "Exudes Confidence"

Youssef Yomtoob has yet to meet a school district on which he can’t have a positive effect.

The new School City of East Chicago superintendent, affectionately nicknamed “Dr. Joe” by those who know him, told the crowd of parents, teachers and administrators that everyone “is in it together” and that there will be no “they and us” once he takes over the reins July 1. The School Board voted unanimously to offer Yomtoob a five-year contract at a special meeting Friday night, the terms of which will be discussed during a public hearing at the June 30 meeting.

Yomtoob, whose career spanned 50 years before he retired from Hawthorn School District in Vernon Hills, Illinois, said his philosophy stems from research at a district he was in during the 1970s that revealed all students, despite their racial or economic backgrounds, have the potential to succeed. He carried those principles everywhere he went and said he left each place a little better than he found it.

Physics Alum Highlighted in Nature

Dewey Murdick (BS Physics 1999) made the news last month in the article “Text-mining offers clues to success” appearing in the May 2014 issue of Nature, an International Weekly Journal of Science of high repute.  The article highlighted one of the many projects Murdick manages for the U.S. Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA) Foresight and Understanding with Scientific Exposition (FUSE) program.

“So far, it has performed more than 2 million analyses of past data to pick out key advances," says Murdick in reference to his innovative software that reviews multilingual data from scientific, technical, and patent literature. "From these, it has identified several hundred indicators, such as new collaborations or expressions of excitement in text, that highlight emerging areas now."  

FUSE seeks to build capabilities and methodologies that assist a diverse set of analysts (e.g., national security, research evaluation, and business intelligence) in prioritizing new claims, methods, and technologies from around the world. 

To learn more about this new software and its significant predictive power which puts it on track to forecast the launch of new products and other applications, refer to the full-text article.

Prof Talks On Food Consumption vs. Production

“It’s pretty well known that we’re second in crop diversity only to California,” said Lee LaVanway, president, CEO and market master of the Benton Harbor Fruit Exchange. “As a temperate zone, we’re probably number one.”

As such, residents and tourists should be able to find a cornucopia of Michigan produce in every supermarket in the region, but taking a trip to any of the local groceries will show you that, in 2014, such is not the case. Rather, finding produce advertised as “Michigan grown” is pretty rare—even during the peaks of the various harvest seasons.

“We have a $500 million gap between what we consume and what we produce in this county,” explained Mark Moreno, associate professor of architecture at Andrews University and founding director of the New Berrien Food Foundation. “We’re spending $680 million, and we’re producing less than $100 million.”

Professor Develops Early Math Skills Test

Getting help early is critical, but unlike reading, there are very few math assessments for young students that may explain why they struggle to perform calculations such as addition and subtraction.

Now, Researchers at the University of Western Ontario have developed a two-minute screening test to determine whether students as early as senior kindergarten have a handle on numeracy skills – and to catch those who may be showing signs of early learning problems or who just need extra help.

The remarkably simple test was created by Daniel Ansari, the Canada Research Chair in developmental cognitive neuroscience, and Nadia Nosworthy, now an assistant professor at Michigan’s Andrews University, because there was a need for math assessments in developing countries that did not require a computer to administer.

In it, we encounter reasons for thinking twice about using biblical chronology as a measure for the age of the earth. Dr. Horn points out that many dates we rely upon prophetically are not universally embraced for their historicity. He further notes that many dates about which there is little controversy are frequently derived by relying upon secular source material—not from Scripture itself.

Professor Quoted in Article

A couple articles ago I started a look at some popular food myths that have no real scientific merit. I love these things as they help people make better, more informed choices about food without being mislead by popular hearsay. Here are a few more food myths for you to ponder:


Your body can’t use the protein from beans unless you eat them with rice.
This is a myth that I once believed in as it pertained to how we would design complementary ingredients when creating new dishes.  Now we know better.  Proteins - which our bodies need to make everything from new muscle to hormones - are made up of different combinations of 20 amino acids. Thing is, our bodies can make only 11 of these amino acids; we must get the other nine from food. Animal-based protein-rich foods like eggs and meat provide all nine of these “essential” amino acids, but nearly all plant foods are low in at least one. Experts used to say that to get what your body needs to make proteins, you needed to pair plant-based foods with complementary sets of amino acids - like rice and beans. Now they know that you don’t have to eat those foods at the same meal. “If you get a variety of foods throughout the day, they all go into the ‘basket’ of amino acids that are available for the body to use,” says Winston J. Craig, Ph.D., R.D., nutrition department chair at Andrews University in Berrien Springs, Michigan.

Tracy Weakly, a McMinnville, Oregon, resident, recently published a book titled The Mission Through God's Eyes. The book presents the life and death of Christ in a narrative format from the perspective of the interaction of each member of the Trinity—God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

It was Weakly’s study of Jesus’ life that prompted her to write this book. As she dug deeper into the Bible and other commentaries, she began to imagine how a triune God experienced the events. Based on her research of Jesus’ life and the culture of that time, Weakly weaves in insights about the customs of Jesus’ day as she tells the familiar Bible stories as first-person accounts from each member of the Trinity.

Alum Serves Local Community

When Tonya Snyder graduated from Andrews University in June 2000, she headed right to the Berrien Regional Education Service Agency without missing a proverbial beat.
However, the path to a public relations degree took time to emerge, as Snyder said.
"If my current self were to visit my college or high school self, I would probably not believe the career path I find myself in," Snyder said, laughing. "I pictured myself more along the journalism side, or (being) the author of a book."
These days, Snyder wears two hats.

Student Gardens Partner with Health Department

If the people can't get to the farm, bring the farm to the people.

That's the philosophy behind a new partnership between the Berrien County Health Department and Andrews University's student garden to operate a mobile farmers' market this year.

Garth Woodruff, an Andrews horticulture instructor who oversees the garden project, said it is unbelievable that there are people in Berrien County who can't get freshly grown produce.

"It is shocking to me that in this county, where 90 percent of the land is used for agriculture, where you can't find better vegetable growing land in the region, and probably the United States, you would have food deserts in areas such as Berrien Springs, Benton Harbor and Niles," Woodruff said.

If you thought you had to travel all the way to the Field Museum in Chicago, Ill. to see a real wooly mammoth, think again. In fact, the most complete skeleton of a mammoth to be found in Michigan is on display in Berrien Springs, Mich., at the Andrews University Museum of Natural History.

Student Writes on Learning from Holidays

Katelyn Ruiz, communications graduate student, writes for U.S. News & World Report

 

As an international student, I miss my folks, but being away from home over the holidays makes the distance between us seem much greater.

To combat this calendar-induced bout of seasonal homesickness, I committed to celebrating in my own way with whatever traditions I could sneak across the border.

First, I realized that I was not alone in feeling lonely. Many of my fellow international students, whom I came to know through classes or campus-sponsored activities, also missed their own holiday celebrations.  <<< Read the full story >>>

Adventist Review: Walking the Newsbeat

By Debbie Michel
I sat in my office overlooking the Rockefeller Plaza ice rink and was overcome with a mixture of anxiety and relief. Anxiety, because I had made the decision to leave my job at NBC News without any other prospects in sight; relief, in that the daily grind chronicling the latest devastation had reached its end.

It was the culmination of 11 years chasing leads showcasing the worst of humanity: the Heaven’s Gate mass suicide; Washington, D.C., sniper shootings; JonBenét Ramsey murder; September 11; and stories labeled “nature’s wrath,” such as Hurricane Katrina. Read full story
