Embracing Our Savior's Vision

As we move forward together in this new year, I am hopeful. My hope is found in God the Father, Jesus Christ the Son and the Holy Spirit.


His Story, Our Story

A Mission Lesson From Adventist Health

Adventist Health leadership, staff and employees are ministers for Christ in our Seventh-day Adventist Church.

Nothing has the potential to change the world like the mission of the church, led by Christ, who is the head of the church, and empowered by the Holy Spirit.


The Giant Must Fall

We all face giant, challenging issues sometime in our life. We face them personally and as families, as individual churches and as a worldwide movement, as citizens and as a country.

Plugged Into Jesus

On a recent Monday morning I awoke, excited about the prospects for the week.


Our First Work

“Happy New Year” greetings bring all sorts of thoughts. Out with the old and in with the new. An opportunity for new beginnings, new habits, new choices, new resolutions to be better people.


Displaying God's True Colors

Fall is one of my favorite seasons of the year. All the vibrant colors of the changing leaves declare the glory of our mighty Creator God. The leaves do not change because the trees are dying.
