Once a year, Boulder Adventist Church is privileged to hold the Sanitas Lectureship, where a great author and scholar spends a weekend giving insights into a favorite area of Biblical discovery. In May 2017, we were blessed to have Dr. Karl Haffner spend the weekend with us, and we didn’t anticipate another 2017 Sanitas Lectureship. When Dr. William G. Johnsson came out with his latest book, Where Are We Headed? Adventism After San Antonio, many of our leaders, members, and church participants devoured it eagerly—and we knew we had to invite him to speak for us this year! This series will take place over one day only—September 23—and will encompass our worship service along with two other sessions. Dr. Johnsson’s book is full of rich content that provides many options for lectures. Dr. Johnsson settled on these three titles:
9:30 a.m. It’s All About Jesus
11:00 a.m. Will the Women’s Issue Split the Church?
2:00 p.m. The Promise of Adventism
For the Daily Walk this week, we decided to focused on the first message only. In that message, Dr. Johnsson contrasts the real Jesus with the comfortable “church” Jesus, basing his study on three stories found in the Gospel of Luke.
Sabbath Games: Luke 13:10–17
The Forgotten Women of Galilee: Luke 8:1–3
Follow the Money: Luke 21:1–4
It is my privilege to write the Daily Walk for the message you will hear this Sabbath. I would encourage you to read Where Are We Headed? Adventism After San Antonio in advance of the Lectureship as well.
