The Radicals: This Generation, This World, This Time

"The Radicals: This Generation, This World, This Time" - Part 5

Speaker

Dwight K. Nelson

Since 1983, Dwight Nelson has served as lead pastor of the Pioneer Memorial Church on the campus of Andrews University. He preaches on the “New Perceptions” telecast, teaches at the theological seminary and has written some books, including The Chosen. He and his wife, Karen, are blessed with two married children and 2 granddaughters.

“These are two radically different questions. ‘What can we spare?’ and ‘What will it take?’” Welcome to the radical query, the radical command, the radical invitation.

01/08/2011
The life of Radical 1 reveals why there are so few read radicals in the world and the church today, and why it’s so important that there be many.
01/15/2011
Radical 2 had his world by the tail. But that was before the radical reversal, which left him a great debtor. Therein lies the timeless moral of his story.
01/22/2011
What of the billions who have not yet heard the gospel? What hope do they have to be saved? The answer—which comes as a surprise, even an offense, to many—lies embedded in the thirteenth question, revealing God’s heart while affirming our call.
02/12/2011
Stories of organ transplants abound and have resulted in the saving of many lives. Organ donors are either deceased or have an extra organ they can live without. But who ever heard of a live donor of a healthy heart: the survival rate for the donor is zero! Which makes this story so compelling.
03/05/2011
“Two billion people today have no access to anyone who can tell them about Jesus. Only one in every thirty missionaries work among these two billion. For every $100 in the offering plate, only one penny goes to this work.” Are there any radicals out there who want to see this change? And would even be willing to help make it happen? But where would you even start?

Military Service Connection

"Military life can be a lonely life away from family on deployment," notes James North, Pioneer's Servicepersons Coordinator. "Military families may have a difficult time in a foreign country even though they are together," he continues. "I spent 358 days (I marked each day on a self-created calendar) in Viet Nam away from my wife and 3 toddler daughters. My access to some of the following material was vital."

SDA military persons may receive complimentary subscriptions to Adventist Review, the Adult Bible Study Guide (Sabbath School), and For God and Country and the choice of 2 journals from Guide, Liberty, Message, Our Little Friend, Primary Treasure, Signs of the Times, and Vibrant Life.

A 2021 order form and instructions are found on page 28 of the current issue of For God and Country and I will post a copy of the form in next week's bulletin. If you have military Adventist family members we invite you to send this information to them.
