• China: when will five-fold state-backed religious monopoly end? "The absence of official recognition of Adventism in China means that its up to 400,000 adherents have no legal authority over Adventist properties. For example, an Adventist church in the city of Shenyang in northeastern China, which was founded before 1949, was demolished because the state-sponsored Three-Self Patriotic Movement (TSPM), which claims to represent all Protestant Christian denominations and which has had legal jurisdiction over the church, sold it to a property developer, China Aid reported in April 2013.
Although a few Adventist churches have been allowed to resume operation, the majority of Adventists must reportedly share venues with state-approved churches or unregistered churches."

• Ministering to our split leadership, by Elizabeth Eisenstadt-Evans. " ... It takes courage to be a Barry Black (or, for that matter, a Jacob Duché ). Almost invariably, religious leaders doing their jobs are going to be telling politicians, often seduced by pride things about their work, and about their flaws, that they are not going to want to hear.
But in a moment of profound social, and yes, spiritual division in our nation, I, for one, am glad that there is someone who, once a day reminds them that they not only serve the American people, but their own consciences — and a God who does not turn a blind eye to their deeds."
