    Ellen White's 70-year career included numerous encounters with the public. From the unsympathetic records of the Israel Dammon trial to her well-received sermons in Methodist churches to her triumphal addresses to thousands of curious onlookers at the Groveland camp meeting in 1876, she intrigued a broad audience.  Since her death in 1915, her story has been re-told almost exclusively within her own Seventh-day Adventist faith.  The 2014 volume from Oxford University Press, Ellen Harmon White:  American Prophet, introduces her to a general academic audience, where she is little known.  One of the book's co-editors, Terrie Dopp Aamodt, will discuss past events and future trends in the ongoing story of Ellen White's relationship with the public.

Gerald C. Bryant, PhD, Director, Geological Field Institute, Dixie State College presented “…confessions of a conventional geologist” at the 2013 Winter meeting on February 9

Dr. Bryant’s presentation illustrated that the rock record of Earth history is complex and varied, but also very detailed and systematic. It reveals a recognizable suite of processes acting through time to produce weird, wonderful, unique products. This record is replete with catastrophic events; however, attempts to organize those events into the larger framework of a global catastrophe (specifically, the Flood) have not been successful.
