SILVER SPRING, Md. — In his first press conference for 2019, Ted Wilson, president of the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, was asked about his New Year’s resolutions. Surprising reporters who expected to hear an answer related to church growth or policy reform, a serious Wilson answered “smile more.”
Wilson said that he had made the New Year’s resolution following “consistent concern from Seventh-day Adventist brothers and sisters around the world who keep asking me if I’m OK.”
Showing characteristic determination, Wilson made a fist and said that he had never felt better and that nothing was going to stop him from smiling more over the next 12 months.
“My family and friends know I have a nice smile. I just have to stop hiding it under a bushel and let it shine,” said Wilson unsmilingly. “Plus, anything I can do to deny BarelyAdventist story material, I will gladly do.”
