When I was 7-years-old, my grandmother discovered the Seventh-day Adventist faith. Every Friday night, she took me with her to an Adventist neighbor’s house to welcome the Sabbath. After we attended a few times, I asked her why we were worshipping on Saturday instead of Sunday. She explained to me that the Bible said God created the Sabbath for us when He created the world. We began reading the Bible together so I could learn more.
