Just wanted to post a quick note to let you guys know that we're super thankful for you! Thank you for stopping by and reading the articles we've been posting here on A Sabbath Blog during 2010. Thank you to everyone that submitted news leads and tips. It's been a fun year with lots of cool stories going on.
Here's what happened...
2010 started off sad with a massive earthquake in Haiti but brightened up a bit with all the things people did to chip in and help out.
2010 seemed to be the year of contests:
- Six Adventist young adults became champions of "The Sing-Off!"
- An Adventist college student won third place on Jeopardy.
- Mount Ellis Academy won $500,000 from a Facebook contest.
- Loma Linda won three Emmy Awards.
There were quite a few youth and young adult events this year, including the TED Camporee in Norway, Just Claim It 2 in Ohio, GYC 2010 in Maryland and MIQ in Michigan.
It was neat reporting from the General Conference Session this summer in Atlanta, Ga. Unfortunately, there were hardly any young people as delegates. There were lots new leaders elected. (Check out The Beginner's Guide to the GC Session if you've got questions)
Another thing we tried this year was doing some breaking news, such as: Committed wins The Sing-Off; New speaker/director of It Is Written; Did NBC copy Southern?; Former church president dies; and more...
There were, of course, lots more videos and stories posted on A Sabbath Blog during the year that we haven't included in this post. See all articles posted in 2010.
Some stories weren't able to make it on the site, but was still posted on our Twitter, Facebook and YouTube pages. Check 'em out there if you'd like. (Be sure to follow/like/subscribe with us there)
Again, thanks for a great 2010! We have no idea what 2011 has in store, but we're excited to face it head on with Jesus leading! :D
Happy New Year and have a happy Sabbath!
Please continue praying for us. If you have any news tips, ideas or suggestions, please don't hesitate to let us know! And if you're not a young person, please share this website (or our Twitter / Facebook pages) with any teen or young adult you know. Thanks! :D
