Broadcasting Under Bombardment (September 1942)

Vital Factors in Gospel Preaching (September 1949)

Christ is the source of power. The Holy Spirit is the instrument of power. The be­lieving preacher is the possessor. Spirit­ual power born of the Holy Spirit is conceived and matured in the Scripture.

The Upper Levels of the Ministry (March 1955)

It is difficult to analyze the many factors that must be considered in the matter of changing one's field of labor from a certain church or district to another field, or from a certain line of work to another (as from pastoral work to the Home Missionary Department).

A New Approach in the Midweek Service (September 1963)

These reports represent Prophetic Guidance classes conducted in two of the denomination's important churches, and testimonies of church and school leaders who participated in the classwork in the national capital area. This material truly rep­resents a new approach in the midweek service and suggests a practical and proven method for building Wednesday night attendance. Suggestion: Why not start planning now to pre­sent this series dealing with the prophetic guidance of the Lord in the Advent Movement and particu­larly the life and work of Ellen G. White, and an­nounce the first class for late September or early October. If you will plan an extra or two besides the regular weekly class sessions, the group of en­thusiastic students will finish the class before Christmas!

Wanted: More Expository Sermons (December 1969)

THE need for more expository sermons anchored in the scripture text, highly informative, and preached in the power of the Holy Spirit is sometimes painfully apparent. Such sermons should be heard by audiences attending our evangelistic meetings and also by Seventh-day Adventist congregations gathered to hear our preachers on the Sabbath day. . .

Testimony Countdown The Need Is Now (September 1969)

It is seriously doubtful that a revival and reformation of a lasting quality will occur in the popular churches of today. But who can doubt that many Christians will experience a redemptive adventure with God as a result of the preaching of dedicated Christian evangelists outside of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. . .

FEATURES: Ministers as Writers (July 1952)

"The current situation demands that the church train its ministry in writing as well as public speech."

Medical Missionary in Australia (August 1975)

My Wife Is a Bible Instructor (June 1975)

IT ALL began one morning during chapel exercises on the campus of Pacific Union College in the fall of 1932. I saw a young lady standing near me who didn't have a songbook. So I handed her one. A year later we were married. It doesn't take much to get big things started. And important things too! How glad I am that I handed my wife that songbook, for you see, she is a very big part of my life. . .

Should the Words "God Almighty" Ever Be "Coupled Together"? (June 1974)

"The Big Issues" (April 1974)

We all agreed that too often we present the gift of prophecy and the work of Ellen White at the very end of a series of meetings. Now the General Conference president was asking us Is it possible to bring the Spirit of Prophecy to the front in a new approach to evangelism?

Chosen By God (September 1971)

God had a special purpose for Ellen Harmon's life. She would represent Him to the Seventh-day Adventist Church. In both the Old and New Testaments God communicated to specially chosen men and women called prophets. Since New Testament times, however, He had not chosen any particular person to bring His messages to the church over a long period of time. . .

The Bible and Ellen G. White (September 1971)

I took the precious Bible and surrounded it with the several Testimonies for the Church, given for the people of God. Here, said I, the cases of nearly all are met. The Sings they are to shun are pointed out. The counsel that they desire can be found here, given for other cases situated similarly to themselves. . . . The Testimonies are not to belittle the word of God, but to exalt it and attract minds to it, that the beautiful simplicity of truth may impress all.--Testimonies, vol. 5, pp. 664, 665.

The If and When of Confession (August 1971)

"Confess your faults ["sins," R.S.V. and N.E.B.] one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much" (James 5:16).

Spiritual Overtones in the Ellen G. White Science Counsels (Concluded) (April 1971)

THROUGHOUT Ellen G. White's writings fascinating gems of truth appear. Interesting relationships develop between the physical, the emotional, and the spiritual nature of the human being. Very few persons saw so clearly the human being as a unit, and the relationship between our physical, mental, and emotional habits, particularly our habits of eating, drinking, and thinking. . .

Spiritual Overtones in the Ellen G. White Science Counsels (March 1971)
