This Sabbath, Kendra Haloviak Valentine presents "Survivors Sing: Reflections on Remnant Theology for Contemporary Adventists."
Kendra explores how one of the earliest understandings of 'remnant' found in the Hebrew Bible shifts the focus of attention from identity to action. Within this context, she then addresses two of the tensions in current Seventh-day Adventist remnant theology—the problem of the delay of the parousia and the need for the remnant to both grow (through evangelistic efforts) and yet somehow remain a minority. Considering the remnant as “survivors,” which suggests a shift of emphasis from identity to actions, may help in resolving the tensions. Survivors live now in anticipation of life in the earth made new.
Kendra is professor of New Testament studies in the HMS Richards Divinity School at La Sierra University, attends our class, and frequently presents to us. She was ordained to the gospel ministry at Sligo.
