A series of eight presentations delivered during a recent meetingbetween representatives of the Seventh-day Adventist Church and the Seventh Day Adventist Reform Movement are now available online, says Dr. Nikolaus Satelmajer, coordinator of the two-day dialogue held in December last year.
Satelmajer, former associate secretary of the Ministerial Association and editor of Ministrymagazine, said news reports of the conversation between these two groups — which share many historical and theological connections — have sparked tremendous interest from many Seventh-day Adventist Church members.
“We videotaped the presentations simply as a record of our time together,” said Satelmajer. “But given the requests for more information, and with the permission of all of the presenters, we are now making these recordings accessible to everyone.”
The dialogue, held December 5 and 6, 2018, at the Seventh-day Adventist Church’s headquarters in Silver Spring, Maryland, was the third meeting between representatives of the two groups. The presentations focused on four topics chosen by leaders of the Seventh Day Adventist Reform Movement: Christian temperance emphasizing the diet for the last generation; the relationship between church and state especially as it relates to participation in military service; justification by faith; and issues surrounding divorce and remarriage.
