    The seminary at Andrews University has posted a statement on its website refuting the doctrine of “male headship” in Adventist church leadership. Titled “On the Unique Headship of Christ in the Church,” the statement asserts that the headship of Christ is “non-transferable” to either men or women.

If I could rewind back to July 31, 1985, it would place me in the middle of a mountainous valley in Colorado called Camp Hale where 16,129 Pathfinders gathered like the many Israelites in the wilderness.  Being the first North American Division Pathfinder Camporee, it took a bit of organizing to pull it off.  I’m relieved that we had Moses-ian leaders who knew what they were doing.

The International Conference on the Bible and Science opened with a big bang on Friday August 15 in Las Vegas, when General Conference President Ted Wilson told the assembled professors, scientists, administrators and pastors from around the world that, “If one does not accept the recent six-day creation understanding of origins then that person is actually not a 'Seventh-day' Adventist.”

Here I am at Pathfinder International Oshkosh Camporee 2014, a five day mega-campout for Adventist youth. This special Camporee happens only every five years, and is always greatly anticipated by many Pathfinders.

The International Pathfinder Camporee, held every five years, is a memorable event for young Pathfinders who come from all over the world. The last four Camporees have been held at the Experimental Aircraft Associations AirVenture Campgrounds in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. This year, about 47,000 Pathfinders are attending the five-day extravaganza, organized by the Seventh-day Adventist Church's North American Division and Center for Youth Evanglism in Berrien Springs, Michigan.

Hundreds of children are dead; thousands of missiles have been fired, and over a million people are living without access to water. With statistics like these showing up every night on the evening news, it’s a situation impossible to ignore.
