Change … and Faithfulness
As you open this sixty-fifth edition of Adventist World, you’ll notice several modest but important changes that we hope will increase the value of this faithbuilding journal to you and all those with whom you share it.
- A brighter, easier-to-read Table of Contents, helping you to quickly find favorite sections and columns;
- A redesigned World News section, highlighting stories you need in order to stay informed about the progress of the church in nearly 200 nations;
- A new look for the “Bible” pages in the journal—Angel Rodríguez’s “Bible Questions Answered” and Mark Finley’s “Bible Study”;
- A reimagined “Idea Exchange” in the magazine’s last four pages, full of facts, prayer requests, letters, and survey results that keep you connected with millions of fellow believers around the globe.
Our commitment to bringing you the best that Adventism has to offer—in news, mission stories, health information, Bible study, Adventist Heritage, and devotional reading—hasn’t changed at all, however. The team of dedicated professionals who produce this magazine—assembled from seven countries and speaking six languages—begins each edition with prayer and bathes each part of our production process in prayer. We know this magazine changes lives: you tell us so, in dozens of letters from everywhere each month.
Pay special attention to this month’s cover feature, “Faithful Under Fire.” Andrew McChesney’s remarkable story of a young Adventist woman in the Russian government is a powerful witness to the best this movement has to offer in both loyalty to God and service to others. Ponder your own commitments as you read, and pray for the many Adventists whom God has called to serve in government positions around the world.
Keep the kingdom always before you.
