The programs will be broadcast live from the Loma Linda University Church.
■ NO MORE OAKWOOD COLLEGE--- As of January 1, Oakwood will become Oakwood University. The first graduate degree will be a Masters of Arts in Pastoral Studies.

■ SEEKER SENSE AND SENSITIVITY --- Have “they” been doing it all wrong? The November 29 edition of AR InTouch, the Adventist Review’s online edition, features an article about a “Shocking Confession” from Willow Creek’s leaders. If you have ever been to Willow Creek, or ever used or questioned their methods, you will want to read about this and other news and issues, such as: The nurturing of 38,000+ new members, “Girls Gone Wild...,” breast cancer aftermath, where to find good classical and sacred music, and more.
Contact: www.adventistreview.org where you can also subscribe to AR InTouch.
■ KATRINA HOME MAKEOVER --- Sung Kwon, Adventist Community Services Director for NAD, and a group of 16 members of the Washington-Spencerville Korean church in the Chesapeake Conference, went to New Orleans during Thanksgiving week to work on the Katrina Community Rebuilding Projects.
Much help is still needed in the Katrina aftermath, to help people get back into their homes and businesses.
Contact: www.nadadventist.org and read the news story to learn more about how your church groups and schools can help.
■ “THE COLLECTED WORKS OF PIONEER PREACHERS,” a collector’s album from Adventist Preaching, is a timeless resource for a glimpse at early-Adventist preaching. It shows six sermons and two health presentations which were written and delivered at significant times by pioneers of the Adventist Church, all reenacted in period costume and filmed at the old Battle Creek Sanitarium.
Adventist Preaching’s Annual Holiday Sale is now in progress and will continue through December 31. Savings up to 32% are offered on complete sets of 17 volumes.
