What if I don't get it? The arrival of COVID-19 vaccines raise some complex questions for many Adventists. Do Adventists need to get the vaccine to be healthy? If they don't, how will that impact their personal lives? Will they be able to travel, run businesses, go to school and do ministry? In this webinar, an Adventist doctor and lawyers explore these issues and answer audience questions regarding the health and religious freedom implications of the Covid vaccines and public health measures.

 

Many people around the world are anxiously awaiting a COVID-19 vaccine. A handful of pharmaceutical companies are well into the development process and others have begun distribution — a process that ordinarily could take years achieved in a matter of months. This understandably raises questions about how a vaccine could be developed so quickly. LEARN MORE from an AdventHealth article.

10 Days of Prayer for Children


This week begins our 10 Days of Prayer Annual Event. The General Conference has included readings for children this year to compliment the adult readings! You are encouraged to share these with your child in morning worship or evening worship. Children pray fully from their hearts, so allowing them time to contemplate what they have heard is important. Let  them express their thoughts 
in prayer.  
See another email out with ALL the resources for the Children's 10 Days of Prayer, as well as on the Maritime Conference website.
 


Don't miss this special opportunity!

God's Amazing Grace, EGW
God's Kingdom in the Heart, January 8 
Behold, the kingdom of God is within you. Luke 17:21.  
The government under which Jesus lived was corrupt and oppressive; on every hand were crying abuses—extortion, intolerance, and grinding cruelty. Yet the Saviour attempted no civil reforms. He attacked no national abuses, nor condemned the national enemies. He did not interfere with the authority or administration of those in power. He who was our example kept aloof from earthly governments. Not because He was indifferent to the woes of men, but because the remedy did not lie in merely human and external measures. To be efficient, the cure must reach men individually, and must regenerate the heart. 11  
Some of the Pharisees had come to Jesus demanding “when the kingdom of God should come” (Luke 17:20). More than three years had passed since John the Baptist gave the message that like a trumpet call had sounded through the land, “The kingdom of heaven is at hand” (Matthew 3:2). And as yet these Pharisees saw no indication of the establishment of the kingdom....  
Jesus answered, “The kingdom of God cometh not with outward show [margin]: neither shall they say, Lo here! or lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.” The kingdom of God begins at the heart. Look not here or there for manifestations of earthly power to mark its coming. 12  
The works of Christ not only declared Him to be the Messiah, but showed in what manner His kingdom was to be established.... It comes through the gentleness of the inspiration of His word, through the inward working of His Spirit, the fellowship of the soul with Him who is its life. The greatest manifestation of its power is seen in human nature brought to the perfection of the character of Christ....  
When God gave His Son to our world, He endowed human beings with imperishable riches—riches compared with which the treasured wealth of men since the world began is nothingness. Christ came to the earth and stood before the children of men with the hoarded love of eternity, and this is the treasure that, through our connection with Him, we are to receive, to reveal, and to impart. 13 . AG 16-AG 16.6

"There is no mistaking the times in which we live as end time events, but this should not cause fear, but now more than ever, the Gospel must go forth in a light that shines from the Spirit of Heaven." ~Teresa F.
