Where in the world is this?

“Yes, we can be creative and Christian at the same time.” —Winston Lee, via e-mail
I am writing regarding Andrew McChesney’s article “Adventists Urged to Study Women’s Ordination for Themselves” (November 2014). I read the article with interest; and I was surprised by information in two paragraphs.
First, the Position 2 section asserts that Junia was a woman; however, it hasn’t been confirmed.
Second, in the Position 3 section, God’s exception of granting Israel a king is mentioned. Because of their choice Israel sank into apostasy and were overthrown by Babylon. Not a very cohesive argument for women’s ministry. Are we being led down the same path?

I have loved how the children of God in South America are so serious and passionate about God’s work (see “South American Adventists Make Bible a Hot Topic on Twitter,” October 2014). May God bless them abundantly. May we be moved to do the same, if we are not doing so yet.
Faith in a Shop Window
I’m writing about the news article “Britain: Faith Showcased in Shop Window” (October 2014). Yes, we can be creative and Christian at the same time. My prayer is that the youth would step up and use their gifts to create and innovate evangelism such as seen here, in a addition to what we already have.
We live in a postmodern age, and we need to explore new and relevant ways to reach this mindset. Praise God for this creative effort!
World Health and Colon Cancer
Peter N. Landless and Allan R. Handysides always write interesting and informative World Health columns. As an ardent reader of Adventist World, I cannot help reading this column; each article is both educational and inspirational.
The article “Colon Cancer” (August 2014) is truly an eye-opener! At a frightening rate, many people (even non-alcohol consumers) are being diagnosed with color cancer.
There is no doubt that the Seventh-day Adventist Church is blessed with an incredible health message. Indeed, God intended that we should “prosper . . . and be in [good] health” (3 John 2).

Adventist World Language Editions
Greetings! I enjoy reading Adventist World. I have a question: In how many languages is the magazine printed? Bheki Nyathi South Africa
Adventist World is printed in English, Korean, Spanish, Portuguese, French, Indonesian, and German. In early 2014 the magazine launched several more editions of its smaller format, Adventist World Digest, bringing the total of digests to 20; with four more languages being added by this month, Feb. 2015. Our Web site is readable in 12 languages. So one can read Adventist World content in at least 32 languages. Visit our homepage at www.adventist world.org to learn more.
I am new to Adventism, and I like Adventist World. I especially enjoy the articles on Bible study and the Bible Questions Answered column.
Thank you for the wonderful work you are doing through this publication. It helps us get information from our fellow brothers and sisters.
Where In The World Is This?
ANSWER: In St. Petersburg, Florida, United States, a group of Jewish Adventists celebrated the Feast of Dedication (Chanukah) by being baptized. Here the candidates pray before going into the water.
