Ministerial institute began in Battle Creek. (January 27, 1893, GCDB 2.1)

February 5-15, Sunday-Wednesday

John Harvey Kellogg’s Talks on Medical Missionary Work at the 1893 General Conference Session (published in The Medical Missionary, Extra No. 1, March 1893; this 2011 republication of these talks includes a historical introduction by Dave Fiedler, and the article “All Things Are Now Ready” by A. T. Jones from Review and Herald, October 5, 1897). How did Dr. Kellogg’s talks fit in with the theme of uniting the law and the gospel? Had the Loud Cry of Revelation 18 already begun, or would its beginning await the embracing of medical missionary work? Here are my current thoughts entitled “Gospel and Law in Loud Cry and Medical Missionary Work” and “Reflections on Kellogg’s View of the Loud Cry in His 1893 Talks” on how to answer these vital questions.
