REVIEW RED-CARPET EXPERIENCE: This past March Adventist Review’s features editor Sandra Blackmer rubbed elbows with some of Hollywood’s brightest stars and the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) supporters at the Twenty-fifth Genesis Awards in Los Angeles, California. Blackmer’s interview with Loma Linda University’s Sigve K. Tonstad, “What Are We Really Doing to God’s Creatures?” (Mar. 18, 2010), was nominated for the Genesis Award in the Outstanding Written Word—William Wilberforce Award category. This award recognizes journalistic excellence on animal protection issues in faith-based publications.
The winning article for this category was “A Feast Fit for the King,” by Leslie Leyland Fields (Christianity Today, November 2010).

The following testimony was impressed on a tombstone:
No one asked me whether I wanted to be born, But I was. No one asked me whether I wanted to die, But I did.
One day between the two Someone asked me whether I wanted to die  So I could live, And I did.?
Then that One told me I was born again, And I was.Soon the same One will tell me to live once more, And I will.
