The relationship between Ellen White’s writings and the Bible will be the focus of an online symposium to be held on Sunday, November 6.

Featuring a top line-up of presenters from the Ellen G White Estate and Andrews University, the “Ellen White and Contemporary Adventism” symposium aims to provide clarity around how to interpret Mrs White’s writings correctly and responsibly.

“We want people to walk away from the symposium with an appreciation of the Spirit of Prophecy gift in the Seventh-day Adventist Church and proper understanding of its role within the Church,” said Dr Darius Jankiewicz, Field and Ministerial secretary and Spirit of Prophecy coordinator at the South Pacific Division (SPD).

“All the speakers are experts in their areas; their presentations will be balanced and in easy-to-understand language. Everyone is welcome to tune in from around the SPD.”

Topics include Ellen White and Scripture; The Nature of Inspiration and How it Works; The Godhead in the Writings of Ellen White; and How to use Ellen White’s Writings Properly. The event will also include newly produced video clips about Ellen White’s years in Australia and a Q&A session with the guest speakers.

Hosted by Adventist Record editor Jarrod Stackelroth and former assistant editor Maryellen Hacko, the symposium is being sponsored by the South Pacific Division, the Ellen G White Research Centre at Avondale University, and the Adventist Heritage Centre.
