Connecting Columbia Union Seventh-day Adventists

“We pray a special blessing on all these Bibles,” said Dave Weigley, Columbia Union president at the event. “As [the Bibles] go forth, may they be a wonderful light so many people might know Jesus Christ as their personal Savior and prepare for the great, soon coming of Christ.”
This year, 39 teams from across the Columbia Union Conference participated in the union-level Pathfinder Bible Experience (PBE), held online for the second year in a row.
During the event, several professors from the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary at Andrews University (Mich.) shared presentations on the various perceptions of racism in North America and in the Bible.
Leaders from across the Columbia Union Conference territory gathered today via Zoom for the union’s quarterly executive committee meeting—the last joint session before the union’s quinquennial constituency meeting, May 22–23.
Going on Sabbath walks and appreciating nature—God’s second book—are longstanding elements of Seventh-day Adventist culture. Should this appreciation impact the way members care for the environment? And can it bring them closer to God?

As Seventh-day Adventists, we are deeply troubled by the actions of those who stormed the U.S. Capitol this week, resulting in injury, destruction and loss of life. The founding principles of our country have always supported expression of differing views, in a civil manner, but never should it lead to what we witnessed on Wednesday.
Leaders are encouraging increased Bible reading, study and memorization, and providing opportunities for members to contemplate and share how the Bible impacts their lives in meaningful ways.
