Quarantine and this new season of Covid has provided some space for people to reevaluate what’s important to them and the type of life we ideally want to pursue.

Tools For Difficult Conversations (Dr. Ante Jeroncic)

Tools For Difficult Conversations (Dr. Ante Jeroncic)

August 19, 2020

Conversations like these are important to be because at heart, I’m a peacemaker. I know there comes a point, as Jesus said,  where its time to bring a sword and not peace. Yet I want to be optimistic in my outlook of humanity, whether or not that’s entirely realistic. My hopes are that through dialogue through conversations employ our reason, our empathy, and by God’s grace the Holy Spirit there might be some who can cross the divide of prejudice, patriarchy, and pride. So as your listening to this program I hope you can find tools that you can use for your next HARD conversation, the ones where you’re uncomfortable and you break social decorum. 

 

Welcome back to Advent Next a theological podcast curated for curious faith discussions. This week we are continuing our talk with Dr. Ante Jeroncic professor of Ethics at Andrews University on the art of dialogue. Today we are exploring some of the tools we can use when approaching difficult conversations as well as the point at which dialogue on an issue of justice is no longer productive or helpful. You can follow Dr. Jeroncic on Instagram @ jeroncic.ante or you can subscribe to his new Youtube Channel Artis Vivendi: Ante Jeroncic.

How to Discuss Different Perspectives Well (Dr. Ante Jeroncic)

How to Discuss Different Perspectives Well (Dr. Ante Jeroncic)

August 12, 2020

The art of the dialogue and the importance of being able to hold space for conversations in which perspectives may differ from ours is more important now than ever. It is essential for our growth that we are aware of our own internal biases, our limitations of understanding and why the walls of defensiveness rise up when hear viewpoints that we don’t agree. So what are the skills that are needed in order to have a productive conversation? How do we enter into meaningful dialogue with other?  Welcome back to Advent Next a theological podcast curated for curious faith discussions. This week we are talking with Dr. Ante Jeroncic profession of Ethics at Andrews University on the art of dialogue.

Improving Cultural Education in the Church (Claudia M. Allen)

Improving Cultural Education in the Church (Claudia M. Allen)

July 29, 2020

Welcome back to Advent Next a theological podcast curated for curious faith discussions. This week we are finishing up our discussion with Claudia M. Allen, Online Content Manager for Message Magazine. Last week we discussed the importance of African-American literature and the ways that it can improve upon race illiteracy in America and in the church. This week we are exploring ways that the church can improve cultural education in a way that equips members to intellectually engage with a variety of different cultural lenses and sociological perspectives, which can improve our cross-cultural relationships and engagement. I’m starting this episode by finishing up the tail end of our previous talk and diving into a discussion about diversity of thought.  We want to thank the Adventist Learning Community for making this program possible.

Allen at the handle @camaal365 I’m your host Kendra Arsenault and this is Advent Next.

The Importance of African-American Literature (Claudia M. Allen)

The Importance of African-American Literature (Claudia M. Allen)

July 22, 2020

Welcome back to Advent Next a theological podcast curated for curious faith discussions. This week we are talking with Claudia M. Allen, Online Content Manager for Message Magazine. She is a teacher, preacher, and writer on race, anti-racism, and biblical social justice with over 6 years of professional training in the studies of African-American Literature at both the Masters and Doctoral level. She is passionate about the inclusion of African-American studies within institutions of learning. After having her own experience with various English departments she realized how deficient many programs were in including African-American literature. So today, we’re discussing how exposure to different cultural lenses and sociological perspectives can begin having a positive impact on helping people to identify racism and growing personal exposure to wider worldviews. We want to thank the Adventist Learning Community for making this program possible.

Regional Conferences & The Preservation of Minority Voices (Dr. Douglas Morgan)

Regional Conferences & The Preservation of Minority Voices (Dr. Douglas Morgan)

July 15, 2020

Welcome back to Advent Next a theological podcast curated for curious faith discussions. This week we are continuing our conversation with Dr. Douglas Morgan, Author of the biography Lewis C. Sheafe: Apostle to Black America. This week we are discussing Dr. Morgan’s upcoming book (although still unpublished) tentatively titled Change Agents, which explores the role of the laity in the formation of regional conferences. So I want to take a quick aside to explain why I’m continuing on this topic of race and the church and will continue to do so for a few more weeks. This week we’re discussing church government. It’s a topic that can seem peripheral to the gospel, but really understanding how to organize a diverse group of people under the unity of a single denomination WITHOUT losing the voice and interests of minority groups is an enormous task. Protecting the interests of minority groups IS the gospel. It's why Jesus commanded his people to care for widows and orphans, those who were vulnerable to exploitation and hardship within the structure of their society. Understanding church government provides us a lesson in leadership for how to interact and participate in society as well as with fellow believers. By observing our past mistakes we can also define principles that will make us better leaders for the present. One method that arose with Adventism (not naturally I might add but through the insistence, protest, and perseverance of the marginalized Black community) were Regional conferences. Regional conferences have been used to preserve the voice of marginalized interest groups by creating sub-structures within the majority structure in order to voice the interests of minority groups to majority leaders. It’s the same reason why the United States has a Congressional Black Caucus and Congressional Hispanic Caucus. It is the means by which those in power can be informed about the needs and issues that may be periphery to majority leaders but are unique and important to minority communities. So we continue this week detailing how the Adventist Church developed a system of representation for the African-American community within the majority structure beginning with the formation of Regional Conferences in 1943.This system is unique to Adventism since at this very moment in history other churches were splitting on racial lines rather than developing a system that could empower minority groups.

Lewis C. Sheafe & the First Interracial SDA Church

July 8, 2020

Welcome back to Advent Next a theological podcast curated for curious faith discussions. This week we are talking with Dr. Douglas Morgan, Author of the biography on Lewis C. Sheafe: Apostle to Black America. Sheafe was an African-American pastor of the first interracial SDA church in Washington D.C. Sheaf was a revolutionary figure for his time and Dr. Morgan seeks to dust off the records of history and place him in his rightful prominence as one of the most important leaders of the early church. Recommended reading for this week is the biography Lewis C. Sheafe: Apostle to Black America by Dr. Douglas Morgan. We want to thank the Adventist Learning Community for making this program possible.
