Marion Ruybalid introduces this edition of Anticipating AT1. Our message of hope about not holding back is presented by Pastor Dan Linrud. Jammie Karlman brings us Adventist trending news. And stay by to enjoy beautiful music from David Bullock.

We’re so glad you’ve found Anticipating AT1. To keep our hope alive that one day we will be back together again, we are providing virtual meetings, with a new edition every Friday. Anticipating AT1 is 10-15 minutes long, and can be viewed at any time. We hope it prompts personal reflection, and is a discussion catalyst with your family and friends as you talk with them in the safe ways you connect during these unusual times.

Discussion Questions:

1. In what areas of your life are you holding back love, or professional ability, or creative talents, or words of affirmation, or acceptance and forgiveness?

2. What if someone told you something about him/herself that you were pretty sure you could not accept? Would you be kind, or honest?

3. We know as Christians that we are called to love others, even the ones we disagree with. But let’s be honest: this is hard to do, even with people we do like. What are some real, practical ways we can show love to others, even those that slander and persecute us? What does Christian love look like to those who have deeply and truly hurt us?

Be well, and love well.
