On Saturday, April 22, at 3 p.m. (eastern time), Alexander Carpenter will present “On Giving an Adventist Buck” for the online meeting of the Asheville Adventist Forum chapter.
“Based on three months of critically reading this last quarter's adult Sabbath school lessons, I will examine the history and role of the Adult Bible Study Guide and explore a biblical story that offers a counter-narrative to the official understanding of stewardship,” he says.
