The Ashville Adventist Forum invites you to participate in a virtual event on Saturday, January 28, at 3:00 p.m. (Eastern Time). Gerald Winslow will present “Welcoming the Divorced and Remarried.”
From its earliest history, the Seventh-day Adventist Church has grappled with the issues of divorce and remarriage. At times, the official positions of the church have seemed to have little grace for those judged to have erred. In their practical applications, however, the official positions of the church have displayed a wide range of differences. In our Adventist Forum discussion, we will explore biblical, historical, cultural, and pastoral factors that have influenced our church’s current approaches to divorce and remarriage.
Please note that this is a Zoom meeting. If you would like to attend, email email@example.com to receive Zoom login info.
