Ellen White: Daring Liberal & Immovable Conservative"

Adventist Forum presents "Ellen White: Daring Liberal and Immovable Conservative," presented by Alden Thompson, professor of biblical studies at Walla Walla University in College Place, Wash.

The presentation will be held in Garber Auditorium in Chan Shun Hall at Andrews University on Saturday, Oct. 19, 2013, at 3:30 p.m.

After serving as a pastor in southeastern California from 1967 to 1970, Thompson became a faculty member of Walla Walla University in 1970. From 1972 to 1974 he studied at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland
and was awarded  a doctorate in Old Testament and Judaic Studies. His dissertation was published in 1977 by Scholars Press. He taught for two years in Germany, and from 1986 to 1990 he served as the academic vice president of Walla Walla University, returning to full-time teaching in the School of Theology in 1990.

Thompson is much concerned with church unity, and has described his 2009 book, "Beyond Common Ground: Why Liberals and Conservatives Need Each Other," as "a kind of capstone to my teaching career." He has discussed differing personality types and how they relate to God and the church.

He supports the process of change and has argued that during her life Ellen White, one of the founders of the Seventh-day Adventist church, made significant changes in her views of God. His  series "From Sinai to Golgotha," a five-part sequence published in the Adventist Review, discusses a change from a more fear-based picture of God in the Bible at Mt. Sinai, to a more grace-based image of God at the cross. He also claims Ellen White personally moved from fear to joy. His article, "The Scary Lady of Adventism Learns to Have Fun" and his book, "Escape from the Flames: How Ellen White Grew from Fear to Joy—and Helped Me to Do it Too" (2005), have a similar theme.

Thompson's speaking engagements and writings cover many topics, including the Old Testament, Ellen White studies, inspiration, and Seventh-day Adventist history.

Adventist Forum is open to the public. All are welcome. For information, contact Art Robertson at robertsa2@earthlink.net or call 269-471-7150.

National Depression Screening Day

The Counseling & Testing Center is celebrating the National Depression Screening Day (NDSD) on Thursday, October 10, 2013.

Depression, anxiety, and related mood disorders cannot be seen on an x-ray. Yet mental illness is painful, and the stigma associated with it often prevents many from seeking help. We want to bring down the barriers of stigma through education and community involvement. We know that there is hope and that connectedness is a powerful medicine.


Whether for depression or another mental health issue, a screening will help you to better understand your state of mind and whether it might be in your interest to seek further help. We'll be offering free and confidential screenings from 12:30-2:30pm at the Leadership Lab, (next to Student Life @ the Campus Center). Also, you can take a free, anonymous, self-assessment for depression, anxiety, and more, without even leaving their dorm room or apartment, 24/7, by visiting our online screening portal: http://www.mentalhealthscreening.org/screening/andrews

In addition, you can become involved in these activities we have planned from 12:30-2:30 in front of the Campus Center:

• Hope. Share a message of hope with others. Let others know how you keep yourself healthy or the benefits of seeking help. We'll display a collage at the Campus Center. Also, if you want to, we'll take your picture and share your inspiration through Instagram (#AUStandsForHope).

• Get a hug. Look for one of our volunteers with a "Free Hugs" signs and open your arms and get some love.

• Create. Stop by our T-shirt station and design your own t-shirts with messages of hope that encourage others to seek help. You can also get creative with sidewalk chalk to raise awareness about depression, share your inspiration, and motivate others to seek help.

• Reflect. Suicide is the second leading cause of death for college students. Most of us can think of someone that has been impacted by the loss of a friend or a loved one due to depression and suicide. We'll offer a space to reflect and honor their memory. You’ll be able to plant a flag in memoriam.

• Pray. Do you have a prayer request for yourself or for a friend? You'll be able to write them down and we'll have volunteers who will be praying for these requests. You are welcomed to join in prayer for others for as long as you want.

There will be many ways to become involved. Come, show your support, and raise awareness about depression. There is hope.

To learn more about depression and how to prevent suicide, visit http://www.helpguide.org/topics/depression
If you are concerned about yourself or about someone else, we’re here to help. Give us a call 269-471-3470.

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

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.

Advanced Connections Training

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

Come to find out the answer and what that might mean for your spiritual life!

Terrace Cafe Closed for Monday Supper

The Terrace Cafe will be closed this coming Monday, September 2nd for supper. This is so that students can go to the Labor Day Blast on campus. The Gazebo will still be open for supper for all those who choose not to attend the Labor Day Blast. Thank you for your understanding.

New Gazebo Loyalty Card for Faculty and Staff

The Loyalty Card program for the Gazebo is only for Faculty and Staff, and they can still use their discount along with the card!

Here's how it works: Every purchase of $10 or more, after the 25% discount has been taken, gets you one punch on the card. After ten punches, use the card to get a free smoothie of your choice (and of course a new Loyalty Card!). Come to the Dining Services office to get the Loyalty Cards, and start working towards that free smoothie today.

Bible Journey Sabbath School Class

If you are a new faculty member or graduate student and have not yet found a Sabbath School class, we invite you to check out our Bible Journey SS class. This new class, which began in May 2013, meets in Nethery Hall, Room 143, each Sabbath at the regular Sabbath School class time: 10:30 to 11:30 a.m.

Our teachers are Stanley Patterson, Associate Professor of Christian Ministry; Paul Petersen, Professor of Hebrew Bible; and Woodrow Whidden, Professor of Religion, Emeritus. Seminary doctoral students Katrina Blue and Laura Morrow will teach occasionally as their study schedules permit.

Since its beginning, the class has been studying “lesser known Bible characters” and will continue to study those narratives through September. For the final quarter of the year, we will use the regular Adult Bible Study Guide, which will be on the topic of the sanctuary—a major biblical theme.

The second Sabbath of each month we have a time of fellowship—typically a potluck dinner or supper. We invite you to come and check out our class. You just might find a group of new friends.
