While Ellen White may not have known the modern technology that we have at our fingertips today, her writings are available on an increasing number of devices and platforms. Stefan Serena, Ellen G. White Estate technical coordinator, is working with his team to make White’s writings freely available to pastors and laity alike through their websites, desktop tools and smartphone apps (Android and iOS). They have even released a site with photos of people and places from Ellen White’s time. You can read more about the work of the White Estate at AdventistWorld.org.
While it maybe cold and snowy around the Northwest, now is the time to start thinking about the Vacation Bible School program for your church. This year’s program from the Review and Herald, titled The Investigation Station: The Genesis Factor, is available now. Created by a team of local church VBS leaders, children’s ministries directors, and pastors, the program teaches kids to investigate God’s Word. Featuring Adventist beliefs including God as the Creator, the seventh-day Sabbath, baptism, and heaven, The Investigation Station: The Genesis Factor is designed to connect with community children while engaging Adventist children in learning Bible truths. The program is available in English and Spanish from AdventSource or your local ABC.
