Adventist president named new governor general of Jamaica

Source: Adventist News Network

Queen Elizabeth II recently appointed Dr. Patrick Linton Allen as the new governor general of Jamaica. Dr. Allen is the president for the Adventist Church's West Indies Union.

Now if you're thinking that a governor general governs generals, let me explain: A governor general is appointed by the Queen of England to be her official representative in Jamaica. So whoever holds this non-political job represents the Queen on ceremonial occasions and is allowed to "appoint and oversee officers of civil service." Dr. Allen's new job starts February 26, 2009.

Here are some excerpts* from the article on Adventist News Network:
