GCSDA Corruption #30
For the second time in seven years,
the Seventh-day Adventist Church has been asked to produce
a Christmas worship program for a major network in the United States.
In 2001 the Adventist Church will produce
"The Greatest Gift" for NBC.
In 1994, the Adventist Church produced "A New Noel" for ABC.
This year's 60-minute program will feature music by
the Harlem Boys Choir, Sandi Patty, Wintley Phipps, and
the Brockton Advent Children's Choir from Brockton, Massachusetts.
The featured speaker will be Rear Adm. Barry Black,
an Adventist who is chief of chaplains for the U.S. Navy.
The program will be taped at the Ephesus church
on Manhattan in New York City on November 25.
Another highlight of the program will be a reading of the Christmas
story by people intimately involved in the September 11 attacks on America.
Three fire fighters, a police officer, an emergency room physician, and
family members of those who died will share the story of Jesus' birth --
and of His triumphant return.
The final passage of the Christmas reading will be Revelation 21,
the story of the Holy City's return to the New Earth.
It will be a very moving part of the Christmas program.
"The Greatest Gift" will air on both Christmas Eve and Christmas morning.
NBC affiliates are likely to broadcast only one of the two airings,
so people will have to check local listings
for the exact time and station.
