In this week’s Adventist Voices conversation, Alexander Carpenter talks with newly elected Adventist Forum (publisher of Spectrum) board chair Carmen Lau. After being a stay-at-home mom for twenty-five years, she will graduate this week with a Master of Arts in the Anthropology of Peace and Human Rights. She relishes traveling with her husband, Yung, particularly when it involves seeing their three children who are scattered across the United States. She is a reader and podcast connoisseur who enjoys being in nature in the company of her two dogs. We discuss how she first read Spectrum at Southern, her recent trip to research the Rwandan genocide, and her vision for the future of Adventism.
Our goal is to foster community through conversation. This podcast is a companion to Spectrum, a journal established to encourage Seventh-day Adventist participation in the discussion of contemporary issues from a Christian viewpoint, to look without prejudice at all sides of a subject, to evaluate the merits of diverse views, and to foster intellectual and cultural growth.
