We are a group of Adventists who are on a spiritual journey together. We explore the things of God without fear, remembering that we were told to "prove all things, hold fast to that which is good." Because we are at different points along the journey, different views are expressed. There is no pressure to conform, for we value learning from one another. We are never offended by a question or a different point of view. But most of all, because the group is much smaller than most congregations, we get to know one another well, and we care for and support each other -- we do not feel pressured to pretend, to hide our troubles from one another. We worshiped at St Paul's Chapel, Columbia University for over 30 years (since 1969) but now meet at St Mary's Episcopal Church. Our regulars include students, middle aged, and elderly persons; persons representing various races and nationalities; families, couples, and singles. We value our diversity. We feel the presence of God in our midst.
The Metro New York Adventist Forum is a chapter of the Association of Adventist Forums. Though we holds services on Saturday mornings we are not an official church recognized by the local SDA conference, but we are an outreach program for students, artists, intellectuals and others who desire a thoughtful approach to religious ideas.
