Humans of Adventism | The Power of Story (Kaleb Eisele)

Humans of Adventism | The Power of Story (Kaleb Eisele)

May 27, 2020

Welcome back to Advent Next a theological podcast curated for curious faith discussions. Today our guest is Kaleb Eisele, he is the Founder of Humans of Adventism and Oregon Adventist Stories along with being the Script editor for the “I’m Listening” podcast with Justin Khoe. This week, we are exploring the inspiration behind Humans of Adventism and the lost art of listening to their life stories of others and sharing our own journey, the beautiful messes and the discouraging despairs, in a way that affirms our common humanity. How do we create a space for meaningful human connection? We filmed this particular segment before our current quarantine, which has only proved to be more relevant today as our worlds have slowed down and we find time to make space to learn and grow from each other. Before we get started, we want to thank the Adventist Learning Community for making this program possible. If you’re not already following us on Facebook, Instagram or Youtube, be sure to find us at the handle @adventnext. You can follow our guest at the Instagram handle @kalebeisle and you can find his work @humansofadventism. I’m your host Kendra Arsenault and this is Advent Next.

May 13, 2020

Welcome back to Advent Next a theological podcast curated for curious faith discussions. This week we are continuing our discussion with Dr. Daniel Gonzalez-Socoloske, professor of ecology at Andrews University.  Last week, we discussed the importance of developing something called a “land ethic,” where we begin to develop a moral sense for our to interact with natural resources and other creatures that inhabit this planet. This week are discussing what we as individuals, as a collective and the church can do about being more mindful regarding our impact upon the planet.

Cultivating A Land Use Ethic (Dr. Daniel Gonzalez-Socolaske)

Cultivating A Land Use Ethic (Dr. Daniel Gonzalez-Socolaske)

May 6, 2020

Welcome back to Advent Next a theological podcast curated for curious faith discussions. This week our guest is Dr. Daniel Gonzalez-Socoloske, professor of ecology at Andrews University.  This week, we are discussing the importance of developing a “land ethic,” in addition to the ethics, we hold towards both God and man. What does it mean to see ourselves as cohabitors of the planet rather than sole occupants? How can we develop a moral compass for how we treat the habitats and life forms with whom we share this vast yet limited resource called earth?

Growing Young Next Generation Churches (Dr. A. Allan Martin)

Growing Young Next Generation Churches (Dr. A. Allan Martin)

April 29, 2020

Welcome back to Advent Next a theological podcast curated for curious faith discussions. This week our guest is Dr. A. Allan Martin, the teaching pastor at Younger Generation Church. In our current era of quaratine and isolation, I’m sure the question on many minds is how will the church create community in the days ahead? One thing I’m sure we’ve learned, by being deprived of it, is that community IS deeply important. Community is vitally connected to what it means to be human. So this week, we have Dr. Martin, a former professor at Andrews University and research facilitator for one of Barna Group’s latest studies called Growing Young Adventists, exploring what are the key components for growing vibrant communities of faith. Before we get started, we want to thank the Adventist Learning Community for making this program possible.

April 15, 2020

Welcome back to Advent Next a theological podcast curated for curious faith discussions. This week our guest is once again Dr. Jerome Skinner, professor of Old Testament Exegesis and Theology at Andrews University. If you haven’t already checked out last week’s episode with him on “How to Read the Bible,” be sure you do so, there are lots of insights into the kind of approaches and methods that will help you when studying scripture. This week, we are applying our knowledge from last week in methodological approaches, to the book of Genesis. We discuss topics like, is the book of Genesis a scientific account of creation? How early in the Torah are we introduced to the concept of the Messiah and how central is this to the theme of the Old Testament? Before we get started, we want to thank the Adventist Learning Community for making this program possible.

April 8, 2020

Welcome back to Advent Next a theological podcast curated for curious faith discussions. This week our guest is Dr. Jerome Skinner, professor of Old Testament Exegesis and Theology at Andrews University. Ever get stuck wondering just how to approach reading scripture? How much should we consider historical contexts, cultural contexts? How should we approach passages where God appears to be harsh and unloving?  This week, we are exploring the biases we bring to the text and ways we can begin to clean our glasses, reset our frame in order to have a closer and more accurate reading of scripture. But before we get started, we want to thank the Adventist Learning Community for making this program possible.

Apocrypha, Biblical Textual Criticism, and Certainty (Dr. John C. Peckham)

Apocrypha, Biblical Textual Criticism, and Certainty (Dr. John C. Peckham)

April 1, 2020

Welcome back to Advent Next a theological podcast curated for curious faith discussions. This week we are continuing our discussion with Dr. John Peckham, professor of Theology and Christian Philosophy at Andrews University. If you haven’t already checked out last week’s episode with him, now is the time to do since we’ll be picking back up our conversation with him starting with the New Testament apocrypha like the gospel of thomas and judas. We’ll also be looking into some textual criticisms that test the reliability of scripture, and we end with looking at some myths of the enlightenment that deal with certainty including how the practice of “faith” is present in every person’s worldview, regardless of whether one is religious or secular.

Canonicity of Scripture (Dr. John C. Peckham)

Canonicity of Scripture (Dr. John C. Peckham)

March 25, 2020

Welcome back to Advent Next a theological podcast curated for curious faith discussions. This week our guest is once again Dr. John Peckham, professor of systematic theology at Andrews University. If you haven’t checked out our last podcast with him, please do so it’s a fantastic discussion on his book Theodicy of Love where we talk about one of the biggest philosophical issues facing us as Christians, which is how do we understand the problem of evil in world if we do indeed serve a good and just God. Today, however, we’re tackling another difficult topic, which is “can we trust the bible?” More specifically, and here comes a new word for many of us, the “canonicity of scripture,” or in other words “who wrote the Bible and can I trust that what is written is true, valid and authoritative? Why should I trust it?” Some parts of our discussion might require you to pause, digest or relisten, but we promise it is soooo worth it! Before we get started, we want to thank the Adventist Learning Community for making this program possible.

You can find her at the handle @michelleodinmamusic. I’m your host Kendra Arsenault and this is Advent Next.

Kingdom Values & Unique Callings

Kingdom Values & Unique Callings

March 18, 2020

Welcome back to Advent Next a theological podcast curated for curious faith discussions. This week our guest is Pastor David Franklin, lead pastor of Miracle City Church and project innovator. Today we are discussing how kingdom values have an impact on more than just individual believers and their personal faith, but kingdom values are supposed to benefit the community at large. We also discuss his personal journey of faith and answer questions on how a person can continue to affirm God’s call in their life even during difficult times when the light seems to wan and we are falsely made to believe that following God was a mistake. Thanks again to the Adventist Learning Community for making this program possible. If you’re not already following us on Facebook, Instagram or Youtube, be sure to find us at the handle @adventnext.
