REMEMBER: If you feel hopeless, helpless, and carry some guilt and shame, it is highly advisable for you to contact a mental health help line in your country of residence. Or better still, go to see your primary health care provider like a GP and share with them how you feel. If you feel so distressed before, during, or after this program call your local emergency line. Do you know how to call your emergency service like an ambulance in your local country, city, or town? For example, in Australia this is triple zero ('000') and in America is nine 911. And remember, God loves you, and so do we!

2019Q2 - Lesson 9 - Time of Loss - The Cycle of Grief and Loss

2019Q2 - Lesson 9 - Time of Loss

The Cycle of Grief and Loss

In this episode Dr Danzie speaks of his own losses...

Have you ever lost someone you loved dearly? 

There is so much to take-in when someone hears that the person they knew, perhaps loved and cared for will no longer be here to continue making more memories together!

Elisabeth Kubler-Ross wrote in the 19060s the first theoretical model describing the stages that most go through when losing someone to death, but loss may be more than just losing someone.

Join the Adventist Reflections family today, subscribe to the channel, and listen to Dr Danzie's reflections on the cycle of grief and loss as he explores what this means for the Christian experience, and provides practical tips to contribute to the healing process of bereavement.

2019Q2 - Lesson 1 - The Rhythms of Life - Philosophy, Relationships, and The Bible

Seasons of Life

2019Q2 – Lesson 1: The Rhythms of Life

Hi Family!

Today we start a new Adventist Reflection series on Family Seasons.

I am excited about this series because here we will have much insight into what’s God’s counsel on how to relate to one another.

Greek Philosopher Aristotle said that we, humans are “zoon politikon” - which translates as being political animals or social animals. This interests me, because, well, he was half right… we are indeed intended to be social, but we are by no means animals. This concept was later utilised somehow by Plato although not as directly seen. For Plato, we are humans who inspire each other in soul and mind, and for Him this was a concept that defines love… Both of these philosophers had one thing in common, and many others join their view, we are social beings, that have some level of interdependency, and who thrive better when engaging in healthier levels of relationships. 

“For I am certain of this very thing, that he by whom the good work was started in you will make it complete till the day of Jesus Christ”...
