NAD Day of Prayer for Racial Justice and Equality (June 27)


The leadership of the North American Division of the Seventh-day Adventist Church is asking its members, churches, ministries, and services to join in a special day of prayer on June 27 for the deep hurt and frustration that racial injustice and inequity have caused in North America. As the conversations on racism in society and in the church continue to grow, we are urging the 1.2 million church members in the territories of Bermuda, Canada, Guam/Micronesia, and the United States to come together and prayerfully seek God’s guidance and leading in our lives, especially in how we relate to one another, and how we can help stop injustice against people of color. As leaders, we want to ask the Holy Spirit to open our hearts and ears so we may understand and listen to our brothers and sisters, specifically in the Black American community, as they share the pain and anger they have experienced over the years. We want to ask for forgiveness, and we want to ask for compassion and strength to have the tough yet necessary conversations so our church can move forward in healing the wounds that run deep in our faith community. By coming to God in prayerful surrender to Him, we can become the church God wants us to be to reach out to those hurting in all our communities.
Resources can be found at https://www.nadministerial.com/stories/2020/6/19/resources-for-the-special-day-of-prayer-for-racial-justice-and-equality.
If for some reason you are not able to participate at this time, it will be recorded and be on Facebook live so it will be available any time. Big shout out to Thembie Samantha Tshuma, Master Guide Coordinator, for organizing this live and important discussion! #youthministry #albertaconference #socialjustice #youth

Adventist churches worldwide to collect special offering for Covid-19 response (July 11)

Jun 09, 2020 | Silver Spring, Maryland, United States | Office of Adventist Mission

Adventist churches around the world are being asked to collect a special COVID-19 offering on July 11 to support communities devastated by the pandemic. Funds raised by local churches will be used to help respond within their region of the world.

This means that all COVID-19 Response offerings given by church members will go to their local division and local fields to fund initiatives to help those suffering from this pandemic. Masks. Essential supplies. Counseling . . . Whatever it takes.

Should We Protest Discrimination and Racism?

June 19, 2020


 “But Pastor, is it okay to protest?”

“Did Jesus ever do it? Didn’t He just preach the Gospel and didn’t waste His time doing that?”

“Doesn’t Ellen White say that we cannot involve ourselves in this type of thing?”

“Don’t you think we should stop wasting our precious time in distractions such as these and preach the Three Angels Message?”

“This is all politics.”

These are some questions and comments we have heard during the last few weeks. Actually, some of these, we have heard for years now. They come from colleagues, family members, brothers, and sisters in our churches, and others. Interesting, that as Adventists, with protestant roots, we have to ask the question, if it is OK to protest.

So let’s start with Jesus; after all, He is the one we should always begin with. He is the One Ellen White would have started with. After that, we will deal with the early church and its pioneers, and we will end with our church today.
