Volume 14, Number 2, November-December 2010
This is probably the most diverse Servants’ News ever! It has the largest format and is also the most delayed—11 months late. That problem will be solved, by Norman Edwards and other SN writers continuing to write for Shepherd’s Voice Magazine, the new publication which all SN readers will receive (see box at right). SVM has a dedicated staff, able to produce it regularly.
Beginning in 1995, Servants’ News was busy sharing Bible truth and news of Sabbatarian groups in a non-denominational way—and is still doing so in this issue. Since, moving to Port Austin in 2004, I felt the need to be teaching new people—not only those who are already keeping the Sabbath. Indeed, our local church attendance is now mostly people who have never been to corporate Church of God congregations. This is a great contrast to a recent conversation with a man in a typical big corporate CoG congregation—that has not had any new people come and continue to attend since it started in 1995.
If Sabbath-keepers, whether corporate or independent, continue to put too much emphasis on “having the truth” and too little on teaching it to others, the truth will die with them. With that in mind, this issue is the declaration of the end of Servants’ News, and the beginning of many new things. Keep reading, below!
I want to personally thank our Father in heaven for making this possible. I have never had a regular job since SN began, but have somehow managed to do this ministry and take care of a wonderful family of six, the youngest of which just recently became 18 years old. A big thank you to the staff, the writers and so many others who helped. May the Eternal reward you all! (Matt 10:42).
