A Glimmer of Hope

The Seventh Day Adventist church is one step away from being the most progressive christian denomination. This is a bold statement considering the church currently does not officially ordain women in some parts of the world and still believes that homosexuality is a sin.

In this episode Daniel and Jo react to a statement published by the South Pacific Division of Seventh Day Adventists regarding the recent Conversion Therapy Ban that was enacted in the state of Victoria, Australia.

Is the Christian church changing and shifting to a more progressive perspective? Is the church moving to a more compassionate position on social justice matters? Or is the church no longer living up to its mission and thus we are seeing God using secular governments as His agents of change in order to protect the vulnerable?

Born and raised in the church, Jo never expected to find himself being pushed out by it. While Jo’s journey of self acceptance and a search for belonging has been challenging, it led him to find a loving God who was far greater than the sum of his painful experiences and hurt and a return to the church of his childhood. He hopes that all will be able to experience, as he has, a love that not only transforms them but also changes the way they see others.
