HOSEA AND MARRIAGE TODAY:  [ April 9, 2013 ]  This week I made contact wtih Dr. Zdravko Stefanovic, teacher of BiblicalStudies the Adventist University of Health Science (Florida Hospital), Orlando, Florida and author of this quarter's adults lesson quarterly "Major Lesson from Minor Prophets."   I asked him the following question: "Is Hosea's story to be best understood from a spiritual perspective (God and his people) or also from a social perspective (marriage)? Is Hosea a really good example for marriage? Does God expect husbands and wives to put up with all the pain Hosea went through?”

Here is his answer: "Hosea’s book tells us about the broken relationship and hope of restoration between God and Israel. The story of the prophet’s marriage to Gomer stands in the background of the greater story about God and His people. While some general principles about relationships may be derived from the book, the book itself was not intended to be a manual about marriage. The word of God and the example of Jesus both teach that the Lord does not tolerate abusive relationships. His character is contrary to that. He instituted marriage to stand on love and understanding, not force or oppression." 

Note that Pastor Brennen will teach the lesson for the adult Sabbath School on April 13, 2013.

APRIL IS ELDERS ON FIRE MONTH:  During the month of April one of the elders will preach each Sabbath.  This is a part of the Year of the Laity.

JOINT HEALTH MINISTRIES SEMINAR AT CENTREVILLE: Under the Theme: “Preparation for the Crisis Ahead,” guest presenter, Bob Jorgensen, will lead out in an empowering health seminar at Centreville Church. You will learn about the principles of gardening and how to get high nutrition, the soil connection, and important principles from the story of Joseph.  Sessions will be on Friday, April 12 at 7 p.m., Sabbath afternoon at 5:30 p.m. and Sunday morning at 9:00 a.m. to 12 noon. 

Bob Jorgensen and his wife Vicky live on a mountain farm in western North Carolina where they do agricultural research and experimentation. Bob has had a longtime interest in understanding the principles of true education and its relationship to the Three Angels' Messages. He often speaks on various aspects of education, agriculture, and Christian experience, in relation to the last day events on this earth and the preparation that is needful to meet these developments.  Mr. Jorgensen comes to us with a wealth of knowledge in agriculture and soil development. His extensive studies and research has led to the conclusion that an underlying cause of much of the mental, emotional, and physical maladies that exist today is due to the lack of mineral nutrients in food. This realization brings him to the conclusion that those who grow and prepare food are actually health care providers. He believes that attention needs to be directed in how to rebuild the elements that enable food to be filled with proper minerals and nutrients.
