"Let me throw out an idea— what if the biggest thing that Adventists seem to overlook is simple and ordinary? We spend a lot of time and money in the big glamorous and divisive topics like the merits of public evangelism or issues of authority in the church. Don't get me wrong—those conversations are needed and crucial. But there are a whole lot of simple, everyday things that get lost. Like making friends with people who aren't Adventist. I'm amazed by the number of Adventists I meet who have no connections outside of the church. Or finding resolution with those who have hurt us in order to heal and reconcile like the gospel calls us to do.
I can only imagine what wonders our churches would experience if everyone regularly read the Scriptures and meditated on them. What if the biggest oversight is the one you and I make everyday because we postpone living our faith until tomorrow?"
