College and University Dialogue January 23, 2023

Designed for Seventh-day Adventist university students and young professionals, College and University Dialogue is published by the Committee on Adventist Ministry to College and University Students (AMiCUS) in cooperation with the 13 world divisions of the Seventh-day Adventist Church and in partnership with Public Campus Ministries (PCM). Volume 34, Number 2 (2022) is now available online. In his editorial titled Things Left In the Fire, Iván Omaña asks if we will resolve to remain faithful, just as the young men thrown into the fire did. Additional articles include:

Tattoos of the Heart by Lisa M. Beardsley-Hardy
“More than a skin-deep tattoo, God promises to write His law, the law of love, into human hearts and minds. This is the right motivation for keeping the seventh-day Sabbath— as a loving response and intelligent act of worship.”

Seventh-Day Adventists and Their Beliefs by John M. Fowler
“The issue of doctrine and its place in Christian redemptive experience is an important one and deserves careful consideration. We can perhaps approach this issue by raising four questions: What is a doctrine? Is Jesus a person or a doctrine? Is doctrine essential for salvation? Should the acceptance of the 28 Fundamental Beliefs be a prerequisite for baptism and acceptance into the Seventh-day Adventist Church?”

Ellen White and the Matter of Competition by John Wesley Taylor V
“While Ellen White directly addressed their perils, competition and rivalry were a minor theme in her writings. Her emphasis was on the antidote—cooperation, unity, and a spirit of selfless service.”

This Year Also by Justin Kim
“What should be our reaction to the suffering of others and to news of disasters? Should we end our addiction to doomscrolling and follow Jesus to a deeper truth?”

Finding His Way by Emilia Belia
“Like me in my college years, some of you will likely find yourselves overwhelmed by doubts, unanswered questions, and internal conflicts about how to walk through [the] academic environment as a Christian student. I can tell you without a doubt that you are not alone. God is by your side and willing to guide you during your journey.”

Public Campus Ministries in Concepción Mission During Pandemic Time in Chile by Sócrates Quispe-Condori
“The University of Concepcion (UdeC) is one of the renowned center of higher education in Chile, where hundreds of [Adventists] study to complete their professional training. Some of those students face challenges while living their faith in accordance with biblical principles. These challenges would be more complicated were it not for mission-minded students and professors who create social, emotional, and spiritual support spaces.”

Sara Benavides: A Dialogue with an Adventist Architect from El Salvador by Isaac A. Menéndez Pérez
Benavides’s “contributions to society through her country-wide work are well known and acknowledged. Her passion to serve others is governed solely by God’s call to care for the poor, the needy, and the deprived in society.”

Pioneer Medical Missionaries to China by Michael W. Campbell
In 1903, doctors Bertha and Arthur Selmon courageously responded to God’s call.
