Journeys is a duet of sorts. The author will take you alternately on a nearly 12000-mile motorcycle ride around the U. S. as well as an inside look at his own personal spiritual journey through six-plus decades of experiencing God. It began as a sabbatical project through his church in an attempt to find out what is happening in Seventh-day Adventist Churches across America. Why are some growing and most not? What is the degree of optimism among the pastors and the laity? How willing are we to embrace change in a church that looks strongly to its roots? As he began to put a plan in place Marvin quickly saw an opportunity to fulfill a life long dream of riding his motorcycle all around the country while digging out his research data. This adventure was a full year in planning two months in carrying out and another year in getting it into book form. Marvin believes that the information he found while connecting with only one church that was not Seventh-day Adventist is applicable to all churches in general. There may be some aspects that are unique to Adventists but for the most part people are people and issues of control resistance to change and the need to connect with todays young families are more general in nature. As he had ample time to reflect while riding countless hours alone he felt called to share his own personal spiritual journey and how that developed and changed through sixty-four years of life and thirty-seven years of ministry. This book doesnt have all the answers but if you are in any way involved in a church it will raise some issues worth your consideration. May God bless you as you experience the Journeys.
