This week’s blog targets specifically my readers in the Netherlands and Flanders. It describes a program that will be presented in the afternoon of June 2 in the Adventist Church in Utrecht. A similar program was held about a year ago and many participants expressed their desire that there would be some form of follow-up. This is what the program of 2 June is intended to provide.
The program is once again especially targeting those who wonder whether the Adventist faith continues to be relevant for them and whether the Adventist Church continues to feel as their spiritual home. Like last year’s program this new event is also to a major degree inspired by my recent book FACING DOUBT: A Book for Adventist Believers ‘on the Margins’.
The program will largely consist of interviews and discussion in groups and plenary dialogue. Participants are asked to bring their smartphones. They will need those to take part in a polling about issues related to faith and church.
During the morning the Utrecht congregation will have its ‘normal’ worship, but all who plan to come in the afternoon are also invited to join this worship service in which I will preach. The Utrecht Church will serve soup, coffee, tea and soft drinks in the period between the morning service and the special program.
Everything will proceed in Dutch and we will probably not see very many who do not have a reasonable proficiency in our beautiful language, but here are the details nonetheless:
