Two themes run through this edition: the first, a fascinating front cover illustration about our relationship to what we know, and what we think we know – worth pausing and musing over, pivoting in with the Sabbath School lesson theme (page 7). Our second theme continues to relate to the COVID-19 crisis.
- Two General Conference presidents, the current and the former, share some thoughts about how to respond to the crises of our time (pages 2 and 5).
- The editor muses over the message to the church in Sardis. There is only one possible response (page 3).
- Moira Surridge and Alex Cushney share life on the front line – in the ‘Red Zone’ (page 4).
- Andrea Luxton reviews some academic insights about ‘God’s Character and the Last Generation’ (pages 8 & 9).
- Ron Edwards writes about being ‘ready now’ (page 10).
- Cathy Boldeau explains what it means to ‘Stay, spray, play, pray’. Where is justice in a pandemic? (Page 11.)
- For the ‘Long Read’, Steve Logan asks Llew Edwards: ‘Where can they go to see the Kingdom of God?’ – the penultimate excerpt of Llew Edwards’ Values-led Lives (pages 12 & 13).
- There’s still some news to share on pages 15, 16 and 17.
- ‘Almost Home’, a fitting reflection by Harry Wilby for VE day.
For sure, hoping whatever you find will spur you on to greater service for His kingdom.
