September 2007 Sabbath Recorder Online

The September, 2007, Sabbath Recorder is available online here as a pdf. This issue provides extensive coverage of the recently held General Conference sessions at George Fox University, including program, business, and lots of pictures.

This issue also announces that next year Conference will be held August 3-9 at Carthage College in Kenosha, Wisconsin. The President of General Conference for 2007-2008 is Pastor Andrew Samuels of the Miami Seventh Day Baptist Church in Florida, who has chosen as his theme “A Limitless God for a Hungry People.” The Recorder includes his first President's column introducing the theme:
It is hungry people who are fed. It is hungry people who grow. It is a hungry people who seek and mature, and develop and multiply.

When fruit is not being borne and multiplication is not taking place, growth doesn’t happen. The natural result is death.

So, if we are not hungry enough to seek God so we can be fed by Him—not only to stay alive, but to thrive—maybe we are slowly on our way to the “place of the dead.”

I believe our limitless God has asked me to invite Seventh Day Baptists to become a hungry people. Hence our new Conference theme, “A Limitless God for a Hungry People.”

My desire is that next year's Conference becomes a collision between a limitless God and a hungry people. May that collision take place in all our churches throughout the year and beyond.
Also in the Recorder, are memory verses related to the theme for each month of the coming year (beginning in October).
