The first five episodes of this podcast followed a similar pattern — I interviewed people about specific topics. In this episode we add a new format: sermons and presentations. This is a recording of pastor Jeff Gang preaching at the Collegedale Church on October 29, 2016. Jeff’s sermon starts with a consideration of Hacksaw Ridge, a film directed by Mel Gibson about the WWII medic, Desmond Doss (IMDB, Wikipedia). His consideration of peace themes expands from there.
I would like to thank the Collegedale Church for giving us permission to share this sermon on our podcast.
You may remember Jeff Gang from Episode 4 of this podcast, where he and Lisa Diller discussed the Adventist Peace Fellowship’s Peace Church Network.
Jeffrey Gang, D.Min. is an ordained-commissioned Seventh-day Adventist Minister. He has served congregations in Florida and Southern California over a span of twenty years. Until recently Jeffrey has served as pastor of the Anaheim Seventh-day Adventist Church, in Orange County, California. He has now joined the faculty at Loma Linda University’s School of Religion as an assistant professor in relational studies. He is also in the process of completing a second doctoral degree through the University of Aberdeen’s School of Divinity, History, and Philosopy in Abderdeen Scotland. His PhD research is in the ecclesiology of Dietrich Bonhoeffer and its implications for Seventh-day Adventist remnant theology. For many years now Jeffrey has been an advocate of social justice, in particular peace work, which he believes is a biblical mandate for all Seventh-day Adventists. Jeffrey currently resides in Redlands, California with his wife, Dr. Gina Bietz Gang, and their three children, Madison, Braden, and McKenna. In his spare time Jeffrey enjoys cycling.
