Buchanan SDA Church Barn Conference

Buchanan SDA Church
Invites You! Join us at our second annual Barn Conference on September 12-13, 2014, as we relive the Pioneer experience and recall “the way the Lord has led us, and His teaching in our past history.” You are encouraged to wear period dress if you have some.
---------------------------------------------------------
Why A Barn Conference?
After the Great Disappointment most Adventists either left religion or returned to their former denominations. Those who continued to believe in the soon coming of Jesus were scattered. They had different beliefs and opinions about what the Bible taught, were questioning the prophecies and the advent movement, and were discouraged. Of those who believed the 2300 day prophecy was fulfilled in October of 1844 there seemed to be three main leaders and centers of influence.
1. Hiram Edson was in Upstate New York and believed that the Judgment began in heaven known as the Day of Atonement.
2. There was Joseph Bates in Connecticut who had accepted and was teaching the seventh day Sabbath.
3. James and Ellen White were in Maine. Ellen had received the prophetic gift and under the Lord’s direction James and Ellen were affirming the Sabbath and Sanctuary messages in early 1848. In 1848 several conferences were called with the purpose of discovering from the Bible the true teachings. The first conference was held in an unfinished attic and the following two conferences were held in barns, the only available meeting places that would accommodate the 30-60 people in attendance. Here the leading brethren with those present prayed and studied working out the teaching of the Bible which formed the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
Therefore, this barn conference is a reminder of the history, roots, and mission of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
(Additional reading on the Sabbath Conferences: Ellen G White: The Early Years by Arthur L. White; vol. 1, pgs. 139-151)
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Reservations Required: Seating is limited, so call early (first come, first serve basis). Call 269-471-7328 by September 1 to reserve your place! If you are unable to attend, please call to cancel reservation ASAP. Barn pass tickets required to enter Fuller’s Resort will be forwarded to you – No admission without your pass ticket. Directions to Fuller’s Resort can be found online at FullersResort.com under Contact Us.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Speaker: Richard Davidson
Richard Davidson was the first speaker as the local church in Volney, New York, revived the historic Barn Conference in 2010. Richard M. Davidson is J.N. Andrews Professor of Old Testament Interpretation at the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary at Andrews University. He has been with the Andrews faculty since 1979. Davidson attended Loma Linda University, graduating in 1968 with a bachelor of arts degree in theology. Two years later he earned his master of divinity degree from the SDA Theological Seminary at AU. He also received his doctorate in Biblical Studies at Andrews in 1981. Before coming to Andrews Davidson pastored in Arizona and was ordained as a minister in 1974. He is married to Jo Ann who also teaches at the Theological Seminary. They have two children, Rahel and Jonathan.

Berrien Springs Camera Club Starts New Season

The Berrien Springs Camera Club will open its new season on Wednesday, Sept. 3, at 7 p.m. in the Berrien Springs Community Library at Cass and Union. The club’s season runs from September through June each year, with programs alternating between an informative presentation about some aspect of photography, and a competition open to members.
            The September meeting will be about improving our photography and clarifying policies governing the club’s competitions. Members Tom McDonough and Suzanne Anderson will review these and update members on a few changes. Members are also invited to submit up to three digital images, taken this summer, for projection and critique as time allows. The critiquing will be a group activity by the other members, nonjudgmental but thinking out loud how each picture might be improved.
            Anyone who plans to join the club that evening may submit their three images, in jpg format not larger than 1024 x 768, as attachments to BerrienSpringsCC@gmail.com, with the following naming convention: 1_[title]_[your first initial and last name], 2_[title]_[your first initial and last name], 3_[title]_[your first initial and last name]. For example: 1_YellowDaisies_MJohnston.
            Programs for November, January, and March will be announced in later articles, but probably will include a presentation on how to matte photographs and some that showcase the work of good digital photographers.
            In competition months members can submit up to 10 digitally projected images and up to 10 prints (mounted, at least 5" x 7") for judging. Awards are given for the top projected images and prints. Acceptable topics always include Nature (nothing domesticated or showing evidence of mankind), Portraits, and Open (anything), plus two special topics each month. The special topics for each competition month this year are:
            Oct. 1: Marinas; Rocks
            Dec. 3: Neighborhoods (NH); Trees
            Feb. 4: Abandoned Buildings (AB); Chocolate (Coco)
            Apr. 1: National Parks (NP); Macro
The abbreviations in parentheses will be used in the naming convention for submissions.
            The May 6 meeting is for final judging of the year's acceptances, when 3 judges will select the top 10 projected images and prints of the year, and the June 3 end-of-season meeting will include a potluck meal at 6:30 and a show from the year's acceptances.
            Club officers this year are:
            President—Jill Kline Dodge
            Vice President—Shelly Martinez
            Treasurer—Kathleen Mendel
            Coordinator for Judges—Bradley Austin
            Publicity—Madeline Johnston
            Digital Projection—Suzanne Anderson and Tom McDonough
            Southwestern Michigan Council of Camera Clubs (SWMCCC) Affiliation—Jim Lynch
            The public is welcome to attend and enjoy the competitions. To submit pictures, one must be a member. Other activities are being planned for members, such as outings, exhibits, and publication. Annual membership fees are $5 for students, $15 for other individuals, or $20 per family. Refreshments are served at each meeting.

We would like shoes as well (again, all sizes from children to adults and for all seasons) for the "GOD's CLOSET" program that we initiated last year.

Women-focused Scholarship Opportunity

Womenetics and Discover Financial Services are offering five undergraduates a total of $15,000 through the Advancing Aspirations Global Scholarship (AAGS). With this award-winning essay competition, Womenetics and Discover encourage students to research and create awareness about global issues that affect women in business.

In addition to the prize money, the five finalists will be invited on an expense-paid trip to share their insights at the 2014 Global Women’s Initiative – where the grand prize winner will be announced – in Chicago on Nov. 12. Finalists will also be featured on Womenetics.com, named one of Forbes top 100 websites for women for 3 consecutive years.

The 2014 Global Women’s Initiative will convene international thought leaders to explore Women as the Competitive Advantage: Redefining a Workplace that Works for Women and Men. The conference will address the need to create a workplace that more effectively aligns with the lives of today’s workforce so organizations are better able to harness diverse talent for their future success – particularly women.

Corresponding with that theme, students can choose from essay prompts about:
·         Employee engagement in a world of competing demands
·         Confidence and risk
·         Men as catalysts for change
·         Work environment & productivity

The competition is open to all undergraduates currently enrolled at accredited colleges and universities, and we hope you will encourage potentially interested students to apply.

Deadline for entries is July 25.
For more information and to enter, visit: https://www.womenetics.com/Events/Scholarships

Please contact Stephanie Proft with any questions at sproft@womenetics.com or 404-816-7224.
