The Lake Union is saddened by the loss of Pastor Justo Morales, who lost his life in a car accident on Monday, June 7. We shared the news of his passing last week and since then, details surrounding the accident have emerged from the police report.
On June 9, 2021, the Lake Union executive committee convened a special virtual session to elect a new president. The committee prayerfully considered several names and ultimately voted to elect Ken Denslow as president. Denslow is assistant to the President of the North American Division of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Silver Spring, Maryland. He replaces Maurice Valentine who was elected in April to serve as a NAD vice president.
The Adventist History Podcast is a monthly podcast which tells a story of the Seventh-day Adventist Church from 1844 to 2015. This project, launched by Illinois Pastor Matthew Lucio, is akin to a spiritual genealogy, helping Adventists understand why their church is the way it is and to help raise the bar of religious literacy to those non-Adventists who tune in out of curiosity.
