Dreaming in the North American Division

I wasn’t going to include this cartoon because the difference between Opus’ dream and his reality seemed too stark, too different from my Adventist dream and my reality. Then I spoke to a totally discouraged friend who was the confidant of a NAD conference president. This president believed that the Adventist Church in North America had evolved into a self-sustaining bureaucracy incapable of accomplishing anything other than providing employment and retirement benefits.

I am not convinced that this assessment is accurate, but just in case...
