Connecting Columbia Union Seventh-day Adventists
- Dave Weigley
When I used to ride motorcycles, I heard a saying, “There are only two kinds of motorcyclists: those who have been down, and those who will be down.” This is also true in the human experience. There are only two kinds of people: those who have been through a crisis and those who will encounter one in the future.
Dave Weigley, Columbia Union president, noted that the union leadership was very intentional in creating these priorities and took the time to gauge many constituents in setting them.
En su reunión final del 2021, el Comité Ejecutivo de la unión nombró a Celeste Ryan Blyden como secretaria ejecutiva.
On May 22, delegates to the Columbia Union Conference 28th Quinquennial Constituency Meeting re-elected President Dave Weigley, Executive Secretary Rick Remmers and Treasurer Emmanuel Asiedu for the 2021–2026 term.
It’s hard to believe that we’ve been living through a global pandemic for more than a year. Our hearts ache for the many lives lost and families impacted. Sadly, our world continues to witness the scourge of wars, terrorism, racial strife, economic stress and extreme weather.
As I look back, I’m certain it was this pivotal time in my life when I sensed God calling me to the gospel ministry. I committed this verse to memory, and, as I repeated it to myself, it gave me the peace of mind I sought.
Healing—It’s in Our DNA
