Church to hold Sept. 11 seminar on acts of God

CLEARLAKE, Calif. – The Seventh-day Adventist Church in Clearlake claims that what insurance policies commonly call “acts of God” like the earthquakes in Japan, China, Haiti and Chile, and the tsunami in Indonesia are to be expected more frequently.

Wikipedia indicates a recent increase in the number of major earthquakes. Even wars with a human origin and human control, in an age of enlightenment and sophisticated scientific advances will increase in frequency.

With the problems of fighting in the Middle East, we can see tensions growing.

“These disasters are sad and we mourn the tragic loss of human life with the rest of the international community,” says Ted Calkins, pastor of Clearlake and Middletown Seventh-day Adventist Church. “However, it’s not something we are surprised by. As Adventists, we believe God has already explained why all these events are happening. There is a bigger picture.”

The church is presenting a series called “Revelation – hope, meaning, purpose” to further explore the reasons behind this increasing onslaught of devastating events and help people find a sense of hope, meaning and purpose in their lives.

“With all these natural disasters and wars, it is easy to feel a sense of despair and think the end of the world is coming,” said Calkins, presenter of the series. Beginning on Sept. 11, “This series will comfort people and give them something to be happy about.”

The Adventist Church in Middletown will host the seminar on Wednesday, Sept. 11, which begins at 6 p.m. at 14490 Uhl Avenue, Clearlake.

There is no charge for session notes, handouts, and study materials but supplies are limited.
