“The test kitchen was neat and precise; gleaming,” says Beverly Utt, a former nutritionist for Martha Stewart Living. Above the pristine counters, food covered the walls—the pages and glossy photos (“marvelous things,” reflects Utt) of current stories guiding the many hands at work. And of course, the kitchen had great cookware.

Ben Carson, the politically conservative Seventh-day Adventist neurosurgeon, continued his recent run of media appearances during the last week. But of late he seems to be spending a lot of his time apologizing. During one of his recent Fox News softball interviews he said the following: "Marriage is between a man and a woman. No group, be they gays, be they NAMBLA, be they people who believe in bestiality, it doesn’t matter what they are. They don’t get to change the definition." Slate notes: "Those comments—specifically the decision to lump homosexuality in with bestiality and pedophilia—didn't go over so well, particularly with students at the Johns Hopkins medical school." Then Ben Carson appeared on MSNBC to apologize.
This week, Juli Miller in Idaho sets the table for Sabbath at the Spectrum Café. In addition to featuring memorable Sabbath meals, Sabbath at the Spectrum Café will feature guest columnists’ fresh perspectives on food, community, and unique stories surrounding vegetarian cuisine.
After worshipping together with music, prayers, offerings, reading of scripture, and the homily, sharing a potluck tangibly extends the dimensions of the hospitality of the Sabbath and the Kingdom of God for me.
On Saturday afternoon, March 22, Brian Keener's wife heard an unusual noise coming from across the Brooklyn, New York apartment where she and Brian live. She walked to the window and saw a large multitude gathered in Cadman Plaza.

In the last article I explored contemporary developments in biology that now permit it to proceed in a precise quantitative fashion. This was a very important article that built the foundation for this current article. With this in mind I turn now to one of the most controversial parts of evolutionary science—that having to do with common descent. Since antiquity the Judeo-Christian narrative has held that humans were a specific creation of God on day-6 of creation week—not the product of common descent. Yet science is finding evidence that would seem to fit a different narrative.
This is what happens when you try to mail The Great Controversy to people in New York City.
A reader writes, "twelve discarded Great Controversy books in my building. This is what we do with junk mail." It eventually gets tossed into the trash.
As we said during my time colporteuring: a give away is a throw away.

"Less is changing than you think," explained Ryan Bell in his last sermon as pastor of the Hollywood Adventist Church. The church was close to full and it was clear that many had come because of this change—to try to understand. But the tone of the service itself, the liturgy, the multiple prayer times, the music by the band and the cellist was about much greater change than just personnel.
On March 16, Ched Meyers spoke at the Hollywood Adventist Church about Sabbath economics and repenting of consumerism and ecological exploitation. The scripture passages are Exodus 16:1–4; 13–19; 22–23; and Numbers 11:31–34.
If one makes matzo for Passover, an 18-minute window opens. The person (or machine) that prepares it has only 1,080 seconds from the time that the flour and water are mixed together until the time that the matzo is removed from the oven, before the entire batch must be thrown away—symbolic sin, in the form of fermentation, has crept into the dough.
Tonight, March 28, the Southern California Conference Personnel Committee meets, and one of the items on their agenda is a consideration of the future of Hollywood Church Senior Pastor Ryan Bell.
Earlier this week, Bell posted on his Facebook account that he would be leaving the Hollywood Church as of April 1, making this week his last Sabbath at the church. His comments gave the impression that he was being forced out of his position, prompting surprise and disappointment among his friends around the country.
