John's comments on his afternoon presentation: I mine my own Adventist heritage for earthy habits—behaviors—that tend toward bliss and compassion. These behaviors include outward actions like Sabbath keeping, contemplation, meditation, charitable giving and inner behaviors like the deliberate cultivation of specific forms of imagination and valuing. I will touch on the theology/ideology that undergirds my practice, but the primary focus will be on habits of body and mind.
The Forum members are invited to a potluck lunch at 1:00 hosted by Advent Hope and they say we do not need to bring food.
Our services include music, liturgy, prayer and either a speaker or a discussion. The Forum is a chapter of the Association of Adventist Forums, but unlike most chapters, our meetings are worship services and meet at the traditional worship time of SDA churches. We have not sought recognition as an official church by the local SDA conference, but do serve as a worship home for many area students and others who find our format filling a gap not satisfied by other area churches.
Our members hold views ranging from conservative to liberal and our discussions encourage free explorations of varying viewpoints and avoid condemning any honestly held belief.
