BERRIEN SPRINGS, Mich.—The Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary at Andrews University is pleased to announce David and Beverly Sedlacek as its colloquium speakers Sunday, Sept. 22, at the Theological Seminary, S340.

The Sedlaceks’ topic will be “Grief and Loss: A Universal Need.” The times have changed. We not only face “normal” death events of loved ones and church members but traumatic events with large-scale death and the resulting trauma. Such realities must now be anticipated. 

Preparation to be of help to others even while grieving ourselves is essential, and the colloquium will prepare attendees to use a set of skills that will facilitate this demand.

The Sedlaceks are a dynamic duo. Currently, David Sedlacek, PhD, LMSW, CFLE, is professor of Family Ministry and Discipleship at the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary at Andrews University in Berrien Springs, Michigan. Beverly Sedlacek, DNP, MSN, RN, has a private practice wherein she employs biblical principles to help clients walk through a healing journey. They have co-authored the book (and the accompanying workbook) “Cleansing the Sanctuary of the Heart: Tools for Emotional Healing.” They are the founders of HIS Rest Ministries and work with clients, conduct retreats and speak at conferences around the world.

This free event will be held Sunday, Sept. 22, 2019, from 9 a.m.–12 p.m. and 1–3 p.m. in the Seminary building room S340. Due to the relevance of this topic to the entire community, attendees are encouraged to arrive early for a choice seat.
