Shine Upon Us

Jan. 14-20

Scripture:
Psalm 5:1-2, 3
Give ear to my words, consider my sighing, and listen to my cry for help.

In the morning, O Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation.

We pray…

  • for Dr. Rona  Halualani, who will be on campus Monday to begin the process of assessing the university’s efforts to develop our intercultural competencies among faculty, staff, and students. May God lead her as she leads us to become a community that develops its capacity for conversation, understanding, and connection across differences.
  • for our students, faculty, and staff who are traveling off campus in the following courses:

Shalom and Creation Care in Costa Rica
Anthropology in Hawaii
Christianity in Britain
Core 250 in Europe
Ecology and the Bible at Tall Timber Ranch
Education in Tanzania
The Actors’ Experience, New York City

  • for students, faculty, and staff who will travel to Ephrata on Jan. 19 to attend the memorial service for Daniel G. Carter, ’15, who passed away over Christmas Break. Daniel was a very gifted classical guitarist who accompanied the Whitworth Women’s Choir and sang in the Whitworth Men’s Chorus at the university’s 2012 Christmas concerts. Please pray also for Daniel’s family, his friends and his church in Ephrata, as well as for all those at Whitworth who knew him and so appreciated his presence and his gifts.
  • for good progress as we work to complete a comprehensive assessment of current initiatives to help students, faculty and staff develop intercultural competencies and determine their impact on the living, learning and working experiences of all Whitworth community members (as part of Initiative 4.2 of our Courage at the Crossroads vision statement and strategic plan).

Thanksgiving:
As we pass through the cold and dark days of January, and as we deal with grief, we are grateful for your presence, Our Loving and Caring God. “Let the light of your face shine upon us, O Lord.” (Psalm 4:6)
