A HIGHER EXPERIENCE
Cultivate the habit of talking with the saviour when you are alone. When you are walking and when you are busy with your daily labour. Let the heart be continually uplifted in silent petition for help for light for strength, for knowledge. Let every breath be a prayer.
There can no longer be any doubt among informed people, that in any country where smoking and drinking is (and has for a considerable period been) a common practice, it is a major and certainly removable cause of ill-health and premature death. Moreover, the introduction and extension of smoking and drinking habits in countries where it is not yet established will certainly be followed by similar effects there. The threat to many developing countries is immediate and serious.
MINISTRY TO SINGLES
This is a book on the singles. There are three types of singles addressed in this book; the single parents once married, the single parents who were officially married but fathered or mothered children and the singles who are not yet married but are adults. The aim of this book is to break the silence that existed in the Adventist Church (and I believe in other Christian denominations) on the singles and more so the single parents (widows, divorcees, separated, deserted, etc).
while this book is not a detailed one, definitely it will be a strong starting point on helping this neglected group in our congregations. I pray that all who get this copy will have a heart and desire to assist the single parents in all positive ways possible.
