“Ellen White for Today: An Appeal” at Faith & Reason Sabbath School

(10:00 a.m. eastern / 9:00 a.m. central / 7:00 a.m. Pacific)

This Sabbath, “Ellen White for Today: An Appeal" will be presented at Faith & Reason Sabbath School.

Adventist historians recently met at Pacific Union College to discuss the current state of Ellen White studies and her role for the church today. At the end of their conference, they drafted a remarkable statement, “Ellen White for Today: An Appeal,” asking the church to appreciatively reaffirm Ellen White in the full light of both fifty years of scholarship and her nearly two hundred years of influence. In that spirit, we’ve invited four non-historians and laypersons to respond to the statement. Jonathan Butler, who attended the conference and contributed to the statement, will first introduce the content and set its context. Then, John Brunt (sure, he’s the pastor who never retires, but officially he’s a layperson!), Dave Gemmell (retired pastor and ministerial supervisor), Carmen Lau (chair of the Spectrum Board), and Tom Macomber (president of the Versacare Foundation) will each offer brief 3-4 minute responses to the statement and, after, we’ll open up for discussion.

Faith and Reason Sabbath School meets Sabbath, December 9, 10:00 am. Socializing starts at 9:30.
