Cliffs Edge – Rational Anchors

Posted February 8, 2017 Faith, intellectually at least, is easy for me. (To live it out, well, let’s not go there.) What follows are three (of many) rational anchors that help hold me firm to Scripture, Christianity, and Adventism, despite everything the devil does to sow irrational doubts. Adventism can be justified on cold, hard logic alone.

Make Believe – Finding Utopia

Posted February 7, 2017 By Penny Brink, Assistant Director, General Conference Stewardship Ministries I remember playing for hours at make-believe as a little girl with my siblings.

We especially loved the stories and the “happily ever afters.” The Trouble With Growing up It’s all a child can do, really. We are not there yet,......
