The Edges of Adventism


The 2022 General Conference Session is over. Spectrum was there in person and active online. The five-person reporting and social media team—ages ranging from early 20s to early 40s got up early and stayed up late watching carefully, asking questions, and thinking seriously about what it all means. Spectrum did this to keep you in the loop because we value your membership in our community.

Sometimes, we all feel alone and on the edges of Adventism. As we work to connect you to the global family, help us out and join the group of Spectrum supporters who know that a big God is relevant, even in the 21st century. Act on your convictions to support this big vision by initiating a recurring donation to Spectrum.

Our purpose is conversation toward Seventh-day Adventist renewal. Spectrum affirms both our movement’s calling and its (imperfect) humanity. True renewal, we believe, involves both honest self-correction and fresh imagination. If you believe it important to challenge apathy and to advance fresh Adventist faithfulness and mission, join us with a monthly contribution as we seek to report for you—rumbles, fractures, trends, creations, powers, alliances, losses.

If your faith allows fearless questioning and seeks human connection, act on this value by supporting Spectrum monthly. Your support of $10 or $20 dollars a month lets us know that people are walking this journey with us as we seek to report what is and to imagine what can be.
