The Biblical Research Committee of the Euro-Africa Division had its second meeting this year at the Italian Adventist College Villa Aurora which is located in Florence/Italy. As usual, the committee spent two days for doing its business. Major agenda items were the issue of war and military service and the study of ordination. BRI was represented by Elias Brasil de Souza, Kwabena Donkor, and Ekkehardt Mueller. There was an exceptional spirit of harmony and collegiality in spite of different positions on some matters.
