"What do you want for the future of the Adventist church?"
"More compassion and less judgment. I grew up in a Hispanic church, and it had a way of putting people off of Adventism. Everyone there was judged or talked about at one point or another, it didn't really feel welcoming a lot of times. With compassion I talk more about treating minorities better. People of color, LGBT+, people of other religions. As a whole we are so quick to point out certain people's bad points, as if their 'sins' somehow outweigh ours. I put quotes on sins because not everyone has the same view of what sinning is, and that's also important to take into account. But overall, I'd like to see the Adventist church be more like Christ."
