Adventist Teen Survives Bear Attack at Glacier View Ranch. Teen staffer Dylan, who teaches wilderness survival at the Seventh-day Adventist Rocky Mountain camp in Ward, Colorado, fought off a bear after waking up to find the animal biting his head and trying to drag him away. The teen told KMGH-TV that the bear dragged him ten to 12 feet before he was able to free himself. The 19-year-old woke up at around 4 a.m.

Pastor Robert “Bobby” Sjölander is to lead the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Sweden for the next four years, replacing former President, Göran Hansen, who retired at their Union Session, July 4 – 8.

Sjölander is not new to the role. He held the same office from 2007-2013. More recently he has worked as director for Evangelism and Church development.

A recent survey was conducted in Spanish to Latin American Seventh-day Adventist Church members (English translation used for the benefit of this publication). Of the 542 participants, 52% are in favor of women’s ordination, and 48% are not in favor. Furthermore, out of those who do not favor women’s ordination, 20% are willing to allow other territories to do so which increases the overall favoritism. This voluntary survey clearly shows a different result than the GC 2015 vote of the Latin American leaders.

A ban on Dr. George R. Knight’s books arrived swiftly and left just as quickly, leaving Michigan Adventist Book Center (ABC) customers confused, outraged, and a little dizzy.

On the afternoon of Thursday, July 6, social media posts started appearing on Facebook stating that Knight’s books had been pulled from Michigan ABC shelves at the decision of Michigan Conference President Jay Gallimore. The Michigan Conference controls the three ABC stores, located in Lansing, Battle Creek, and Berrien Springs.

“‘[N]ational defense’ cannot be deemed an end in itself, justifying any exercise of legislative power designed to promote such a goal. . . . It would indeed be ironic if, in the name of national defense, we would sanction the subversion of one of those liberties . . . which makes the defense of the Nation worthwhile.”
