Adventist Education and the Apocalyptic Vision - Part II

Description:
This article is Part II of the keynote address presented at the North American Division's Teachers' Convention in Nashville, Tennessee, on August 6, 2006. In Part I, we examined the all-importance of the apocalyptic vision of Revelation 10-14 to the rise of Adventism, its mission consciousness, and the genesis and development of its educational system, concluding that "Adventist education is important only if it is truly Adventist." Part II begins with the truth that being Adventist is not enough if the denomination's schools are to fulfill their mission, and reminds educators that teaching is an important ministry, that schooling and teaching are strategically, that we need to keep our goals in view, maintain courage and sanity, and deal with apparent failure in light of our role as seed-planters for an eternal harvest, not our immediate reward.
