Connecting Columbia Union Seventh-day Adventists
That the legacy of Lucy Byard—who in 1943 was denied care from the Washington Sanitarium (now Washington Adventist Hospital) because she was African-American—would find such a generative expression in the successor to the hospital that failed to treat her is both appropriate and an indication of how her experience has shaped our history.
When I pray, one of my favorite scriptures I repeat is 2 Peter 1:4. God has given us “exceedingly great and precious promises” (NKJV). I know that God had prepared this perfect house for us.
When the Bible became available to the masses, it helped to increase knowledge and understanding and became a source of spiritual food that nourished hungry hearts and thirsty souls. By reading and meditating on its precepts and promises, people came to know Jesus and gained a greater understanding of His mission and the Great Commission.
The reason for both Jesus’ birth and the Seventh-day Adventist Church have something in common.
El nacimiento de Jesús y la iglesia Adventista del Séptimo Dia tienen algo en común.
Recently our pastors asked if I would consider setting up a prayer group where they could pray together, share each other’s burdens and connect with Christ as a ministry team. This is a fantastic idea!
Jesus’ birth is the most important birth of all the billions that have taken place through earth’s history. His life, death and resurrection are at the center of the plan of salvation and our hope for eternity.
Blessings abound here at Washington Adventist University (WAU) in Takoma Park, Md., where we strive to engage minds and transform lives for all of God’s children.
Me gustan las reuniones, los entrenamientos y los seminarios, donde hermanos y hermanas se reúnen para entrenar y entrenarse en el nombre de Dios. Estas actividades sirven para recargar mis baterías espirituales, hacer nuevos amigos y, lo mejor de todo, ver viejos amigos que no había visto en años. En este tipo de eventos, nota la inmensa variedad de culturas y nacionalidades que conforman nuestra
Iglesia Adventista del Séptimo Día, la conferencia de Nueva Jersey es un bello ejemplo.
I like meetings and seminars, where brothers and sisters gather to train and be trained in the name of God. These activities serve to recharge my spiritual batteries, make new friends and see old friends. It is at these types of events that I notice the immense variety of cultures and nationalities that comprise the Seventh-day Adventist Church, the New Jersey Conference being a beautiful example.
