The 2012 International ASI convention arrived in Cincinnati last Wednesday with a reminder that each of us are called to action. The theme was “It’s Time.” And it was. It was time for thousands of believers to gather together for encouragement. It was time for preaching, seminars and re-connecting with those who take the Advent Message seriously. Perhaps we take it a bit more seriously now, after Shawn Boonstra’s Sabbath sermon and Elder Wilson’s evening message the same day. Both were good. This convention was also a first for ADvindicate. We had a booth there for the first time. Judging by the comments from people who visited our booth in the exhibit hall, now is a good time for a website like ADvindicate – a website that appreciates the Advent Message. ADvindicate’s goal is to find ways to strengthen that which God has given us, not tear down the message with unbelief and theological pessimism. The people that I talked to were encouraged by our vision. There were even several rather notable fellow Adventists who stopped by and thanked us for what we are doing. We appreciate them too.
During the convention we gave away a Kindle Fire to a fortunate individual who signed the register. Congratulations to Nehemiah Fowler! Let us know what great things you read with it someday.
Those of you who couldn’t make it, we appreciate your prayers and contributions to the ADvindicate forum. Walk with the King and be a blessing.
