At the 1901 General Conference Session, Ellen White, co-founder of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, stated: "Our power and efficiency as Seventh-day Adventists is largely dependent on the literature which comes from our presses. The proper circulation and distribution of our publications is one of the most important branches of the present work." Print was the most advanced method of distribution at the turn of the century. Notice that Ellen used the term "present work" in her statement. At present, any person can distribute video, film and text anywhere in the world. What might Ellen say about that if she was living today?
