The Mid-America Union launched an initiative called, “What’s Your Story?” which features conversations with people of diverse experiences about their life journeys. Their desire through these interviews is to learn, to grow, to understand, and to treat others better. Included in their guest lineup is Lake Region Pastor Victor Wilson of the Minneapolis Glendale Seventh-day Adventist Church.
The Lake Union is commemorating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month with a live broadcast on Sabbath, May 29 at 5 p.m. (EDT). The program will celebrate the influence and contributions of the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community and examine some of their various challenges, including anti-Asian hate crimes. A new study says that anti-Asian hate crimes have increased in 16 of the nation's largest cities and counties by 164% this past year.
Over the weekend of March 19 and 20, Detroit-area pastors of the Lake Region and Michigan conferences led their congregations in a deep study of how the Bible addresses issues of ethnocentrism and cultural superiority among believers.
