Adventists on national radio in Australia


(system) #1

by Nathan Brown

This past weekend featured a one-hour special on Seventh-day Adventists, focusing on various public health activities, on Australia's Radio National—similar to NPR.

The four-part feature included interviews with Pastor John Gate, director of the church's Bible correspondence school in Australia, Dr Gerald Winslow of Loma Linda University, Jonathan Duffy, director of Adventist health for the South Pacific Division, and Dr Peter Landless from the General Conference health department.

The program was a direct result of the second Australian Conference on Spirituality and Health that Dr Rachael Kohn, host of the ABC Radio National program Spirit of Things attended both as a delegate and a guest speaker. The conference was held in August and was organised by Adventist Health in the South Australian Conference.

The broadcast is worth checking out. Listen online or dowload from:
