ORLANDO, Fla., Sept. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Adventist University of Health Sciences (ADU) presents the beginning of its 2016 – 2017 Colloquium Series with a presentation by Dr. Don Williams. Speakers for this year's series will explore the topic of "Faith and Loss" beginning with a biblical perspective on the topic from the book of Ecclesiastes.
As the world recovers from recent traumatic and violent events, what can we learn from the Bible's most enigmatic book? Dr. Williams will lead the community through this thought-provoking conversation, unpacking the message of the book of Ecclesiastes as it relates to our lives.
Dr. Williams is author of a novel, A Time for Every Season published by Westbow Press, which examines faith and loss in the book of Ecclesiastes. Using the novel as a springboard he will unpack Ecclesiastes' counsel for living in a broken world.
We invite you to read his book, attend this free community event and join in the discussion. The event takes place on Wednesday, September 28th, 2016 at 7:00 p.m. at the Florida Hospital Church.
