Retirement Party for Dr. Emilio Garcia-Marenko

The definition of a registrar is an official in an academic institution who handles student records. As the Andrews University Registrar for 17.5 years, Dr. Emilio Garcia-Marenko has come to know the job very well, but has been much more than that. In addition to his responsibilities as Registrar, in 2003 he became the Associate VP for Academic Administration. In 2007 this position changed to the Associate Provost, and he also became the administrative figure to which students could voice their complaints. Dr. Garcia has also held the position of Interim Graduate Dean, and on two occasions was asked to cover for the VP for Enrollment Services during leadership transitions. And he has been a Professor of Family Ministry in the AU Seminary since 1997. Please join us to honor and celebrate Dr. Emilio Garcia-Marenko's many years of service to Andrews University.

Adventist Forum Nov 15, "Suffering and the Search for Meaning"

Adventist Forum Nov 15, Richard Rice "Suffering and the Search for Meaning"

Adventist Forum presents "Suffering and the Search for Meaning" by Dr. Richard Rice from the School of Religion at Loma Linda University in Loma Linda, California, on Sabbath Afternoon at 3:30 pm, November 15, 2014, Chan Shun Hall, Andrews University, Berrien Springs, MI.

Dr. Rice graduated from Andrews University with an MDiv degree and went on to earn MA and PhD degrees in Christian theology from the University of Chicago. He served as a church pastor and taught at La Sierra University before moving to Loma Linda University where he is professor of religion in the School of Religion. He teaches graduate courses and seminars dealing with the theology of suffering, science and religion, and other topics.

He has published several books including The Reign of God: An Introduction to Christian Theology from a Seventh-day Adventist Perspective published by Andrews University Press. This is a textbook for college religion classes. In 1980 he published what has proved to be a somewhat controversial book in Adventist circles. It was originally published by the Review and Herald Publishing Association under the title The Openness of God: The Relationship of Divine Foreknowledge and Human Free Will. However, the publisher stopped distributing the book before the production run was exhausted. But it was subsequently republished by Bethany House as God’s Foreknowledge & Man’s Free Will.

Dr. Rice is credited with introducing the term “open theism” into theological discourse.
He has published a number of other books including: When Bad Things Happen to God’s People, Reason and the Contours of Faith, Believing, Behaving, Belonging, and Ministry Healing: Toward a Theology of Wholeness and Witness.

Adventist Forum is open to the public. All are welcome. For

Dr. T. Overstreet Presents at AICER Symposium

Andrews International Center for Educational Research (AICER) invites students and faculty to attend a research symposium on Wednesday, November 5, at 5:30 p.m.

Presenter: Dr. Tammy Overstreet, Assistant Professor, Curriculum & Instruction Program Director, Andrews University

Title: The Effect of Prosody Instruction on Reading Fluency and Comprehension  among Third-Grade Students
Many students are failing to become proficient readers with current methods used in American schools. Students often make improvements in two fluency dimensions, rate and accuracy, but these improvements have not consistently correlated to improvements in reading comprehension. The automaticity plus prosody (APP) model was developed by this researcher from Topping’s deep processing fluency model to explain why teaching and assessing the multiple dimensions of fluency (rate, accuracy, and prosody) improve  comprehension. The purpose of this study was to compare students who received a treatment of only repeated reading and self-graphing with students who received a treatment of repeated reading, self-graphing, and an instructional focus of prosody.

Face-to-face participants meet in Bell Hall 180

Online participants to login as "Guest" at                           https://andrews.adobeconnect.com/_a877709416/research/  or         http://www.andrews.edu/sed/aicer/researchwebinars/ whether or not they are registered Andrews students.

Adventist Engaged Encounter

Registration Open for Adventist Engaged Encounter

Berrien Springs, Mich.— Andrews University will host Adventist Engaged Encounter (AEE) on the weekend of November 7-9, 2014. It is an enrichment weekend for engaged and recently married couples, which offers couples the insights, tools and confidence to develop their relationship and strengthen their commitment for one another.

  There are three main aspects to AEE's programming: fellowship with other recently engaged and newly married couples; teaching by marriage mentors; and personal communication and connection development with one's partner.

For many, attending an AEE weekend is one of the most significant experiences of their courtship or early marriage. Erin Castelbuono said, "AEE taught us a different way to communicate more efficiently for our marriage. From this weekend, I became more aware of my husband’s emotions and feelings. I would positively and certainly recommend AEE to anyone who is getting married or who is recently married."

  For registration information, contact the Undergraduate Leadership Program at Andrews
University at aee@andrews.edu or 269-471-6636. Registration fees are $50 if at least
one attendee is an Andrews student and $85 for non-students.

Founded in 1874, Andrews University is the flagship institution of higher education for the Seventh-day Adventist church, located one-half mile east of the U.S. 31 Bypass in Berrien Springs, Mich.

Producers' Anniversary Showing of Midnight Cry!

Producers’ Anniversary Film Screening of The Midnight Cry! William Miller and the End of the World
T. N. Mohan, long-time award winning documentary film maker, will be on campus on Wednesday, October 22, as a guest at a 20th anniversary screening of the feature-length film, The Midnight Cry! William Miller and the End of the World.

The event will be held in Newbold Auditorium in Buller Hall on the campus of Andrews University at 7:00 p.m. Co-curricular credit is available for Andrews undergraduate students.

The 102-minute film was originally released on the same date in 1994, on the exact 150th anniversary of the “Passing of the Time,” or “Great Disappointment,” that marked the culmination of the Millerite Movement and the theological impetus of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. This screening will take place on the 170th anniversary of that event.

Mohan has been a filmmaker for more than 30 years. His award-winning works focus on major aspects of the Protestant heritage. These include, among many others, feature-length or multi-part documentaries on Martin Luther, Charles Wesley, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a 17 part series on the Apostle’s Creed, and his current project--a major series on 500 years of the Protestant Reformation.

At the screening, Mohan will give a short introduction to the film, and answer questions at the end. He will be joined by Ronald Knott, director of Andrews University Press. Knott was the associate executive producer, on behalf of the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, and the chief writer. He will also give a brief introduction.

Knott said that the film remains the definitive audio-visual treatment of the rise of Adventism. It is narrated by Academy Award-winning actor Cliff Robertson, provides rich period musical and visual elements, and features expert commentary by George R. Knight and other specialists in American religious history.

“For Adventists, this screening, on the actual anniversary of that momentous day, should be more than just a historical retrospective,” Knott said. “It should be a spiritual event as well.”

The screening is sponsored by Andrews University Press and the Church History department of the Seminary.

Andrews Autumn Conference 2014

The Andrews Autumn Conference on Religion and Science "Faith and Reason: Questions at the Interface of Religion and Science" will begin with a vespers on Friday, October 24 at 7:00 pm in the Seminary Chapel.  The keynote speaker will be Nancy Murphy, Professor of Christian Philosophy at Fuller Theological Seminary. Her presentation is titled "Conditional Immortality and Current Christian Physicalism."

Presentation Abstract: While the natural immortality of the soul was debated (and largely rejected) in the mid-twentieth century among theologians and biblical scholars, these conclusions apparently never reached the pews. Consequently the nature of the person and prospects for afterlife are hot topics now. The concept of conditional immortality is an important contribution to these discussions because it does not force a choice between body-soul composition and currently popular physicalist views. Nonetheless, it puts the emphasis where it should be for Christians: on God’s ability to restore us to life in the resurrection.

The program will resume on October 25 in the Science Complex. Registration and breakfast will begin at 8:30 am with the program beginning at 9:00. Presenters include Nancey Murphy, Professor of Christian Philosophy at Fuller Theological Seminary, John Slattery, a Doctoral Student from the University of Notre Dame, Karl Bailey, Associate Professor of Psychology at Andrews University, and Mateja Planatak, a Graduate Student in the School of Education at Andrews University. Lunch is provided.

Hundreds of children in rural communities are denied the opportunity to continue their education after primary school because the distance to secondary school is not financially possible or safe. One issue I observed in Madagascar is the lack of quality education and the absence of secondary schools in rural neighborhoods. This presentation examines ways to improve education and the types of emphasis secondary schools may focus on to improve rural communities’ educational standards in developing countries.

Venue:  Bell Hall, Room 013

Total Lunar Eclipse

You can find more information about the eclipse at NASA's Eclipse Web Site or space.com.

We'll have binoculars on hand to look for Uranus. It will be visible near the Moon during the eclipse, thus making it easier to find.

The first row of parking spaces will be reserved for astrophotographers and telescopes.

Dress warmly—you'll be glad you did!
