Earlier this month, final exams were taken and virtual graduations took place at the elementary, secondary, and university levels in the Adventist community. Jesus also provides a final exam, and it’s found in Matthew 25:34-40. It’s a take-home exam that’s so practical.

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.

Stefani Leeper introduces this week’s edition of Anticipating AT1. Our message of hope is presented by Pastor Brenda Billingy. Bjorn Karlman brings us Adventist trending news. And stay by to enjoy beautiful music by the Thompson family.

Discussion Questions:

1. During these unusual times, we can either chafe under the limitations to our personal liberties, or we can increase our service to others who are experiencing many more challenges than we. Which way do you lean?

2. What volunteer activities do you like doing most? Do you like to serve where it’s known you are involved, or do you prefer to be a blessing incognito? Why?

3. The volatile and dramatically uneven playing field of society these days means that, more than ever, institutions and individuals have to take practical steps toward improving the status quo. How can we be part of that kind of concrete, positive change?

Be well, and love well.
