Missing the Boat [Editoon]

Recent editoon for Spectrum. A bit of role reversal in Adventism vis-a-vis the larger society. We may not be speaking prophetically, but at least we're not legalist anymore, right? Right?

As long as you're having to do this site anonymously -- maybe not.

I blogged earlier this year about a seminar series by Hiram Rester, when he was in my city. Someone attending the seminar printed it out, showed it to him -- and on a Friday evening before the seminar began, he was not amused.

"I fail to see the humor in it," he declared after taking me to a back closet for a discussion.

After the session we talked again, and he was actually apologetic. He said my blogging gave away his gameplan, for campaigns in other cities.

I checked a few weeks later -- and since I called him "Hiram" instead of the name he usually uses, I don't think it hurt his cause at all. But for some reason, I'm not on his e-mail list -- even though I signed up for it.

Interesting story! Thank you for sharing.

Commenting on people and religious stuff is a delicate balance between revealing what is true while trying to avoid treading on toes. This blog crosses the line almost daily...

Man oh man. I grew up in/around Loma Linda and I go to UCLA, and this is SO TRUE.

I'm the "public school" Adventist - meat-eating and the like - but this just tickled me pink. I'm more of a writer, but you do good work. We should talk.
