This is the last edition of Adventist Perspective. It’s been an interesting adventure. However, I’m tired of reviewing Adventist periodicals on a regular basis. If you enjoyed the cartoons, 521 of them remain. The Perspective Magazine contains, among other things, an unpublished book by Sakae Kubo and Jane Spear’s stories of a childhood spent as the daughter of missionary parents in Ethiopia before WWII.

I will continue as moderator of Reinventing the Adventist Wheel and blog at Adventist Today.

Adventist Perspective is a window into my world. I hope you consider me a humorist and loyal critic rather than a blasphemer. I’ve tried to be honest about who I am and what I believe. That isn’t always easy to think through much less put into words, but it’s the challenge I leave with you.

As a going away present, I’ve included Christmas cartoons along with others that I like for personal reasons. They include my all-time favorite Noah’s Ark sendup.

Love and best wishes for a Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year!

Thanks a whole lot for your thoughtful comments. I always looked forward to your next one. And not insignificantly, thanks for a bundle of laughs. I especially liked the cloven hoof sendup in your final batch. With your newfound leisure, come visit us in Rhode Island.

Great things are going to be happening on Reinventing the Adventist Wheel after the holidays. Would like your input. Would also like you to consider becoming a Contributing Blogger. Our new CB is an anthropologist with some very interesting ideas! Will be back home Dec. 27. Give me a call. 530-343-5696 Andy

Andy, while I did not always agree with your perspective I always enjoyed reading your blog. Most of the time you were right on in evaluating Adventist Today articles. Those that got the weakest recommendation from you were our free lance articles. I do have 32 pages to fill. All good things do finally come to an end and with a weekly to review that kept you very busy. God bless. David Newman
