In this episode of All God’s People we interview Kerry Heinrich, CEO and President of Adventist Health, about the origin of Adventist Health in the west and about what he hopes for the future. He also shares how he sees Jesus in the work he does each day.
The complete interview can be found in the November Recorder, which is our first special Adventist Health issue. There’s also a complete guide to all Adventist Health locations and services in the magazine. We are grateful for their partnership in producing the November Recorder.
Today is Veterans Day. On November 11, 1918, fighting in World War I came to an end, following the signing of an armistice between the Allies and Germany that called for a ceasefire effective at 11 a.m. It was on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month.
Veterans Day originated as “Armistice Day” on November 11, 1919, the first anniversary of the end of World War I. Congress passed a resolution in 1926 for an annual observance, and November 11 became a national holiday beginning in 1938. Unlike Memorial Day, Veterans Day pays tribute to all American veterans—living or dead—but especially gives thanks to living veterans who served their country honorably during war or peacetime.
As a grateful people, we honor our veterans and say, “Thank you for your service.”
