Pastor Craig Carr interviewed on Boulder radio station about the Adventist Church's stance on alcohol » The University of Colorado Boulder just released a study contrasting the longevity of those who drink small amounts of wine and alcohol to those who don’t drink at all. The study found that those who never drink often live longer, healthier lives.
As a result, Shelley Schlender, a news reporter from KGNU Community Radio in Boulder, invited Craig Carr, senior pastor of the Boulder Church, to be a guest today on her morning show. She was aware that Adventists refrain from alcohol consumption. She also asked Pastor Carr about additional Adventist health practices that result in longer lifespans as reported in the resent Adventist Health Studies from Loma Linda University.

Praise the Lord for the opportunity to witness of the wonderful benefits of our health message!
