Redemption in Sight

Feb. 25-March 3

Scripture:
For my eyes have seen your salvation, which you have prepared in the sight of all people.
Luke 2:30-31

This week we pray for…

  • students who may be facing family issues and/ or personal problems; we ask that they will find peace and support during these trials.
  • continued strength for our faculty and staff, especially in facility services, as they serve our students every day.
  • Vange Ocasio (Business & Economics), as she presents “Microfinance and its Effect on Income Inequality: Evidence from Rural Bangladesh” at Faculty Scholarship Forum, Feb. 25.
  • Beck Taylor’s President’s Coffee, Feb. 26. This is a time for staff to meet with the president and to welcome new employees, listen to updates on the university, and share in a devotional.
  • our chapel service Feb. 26, as Beck Taylor shares from Luke 2:41-40, about Anna and Simeon.
  • the Whitworth Honors Program on Feb. 26, as Jonathan Kirkpatrick, a lecturer at Oxford University, speaks about C.S. Lewis.
  • Orthodox Vespers, sponsored by the Orthodox Christian Fellowship, as they meet in chapel each Wednesday evening at 6 p.m. during Lent. This will be a time of quiet prayer, chant, and scripture reading.
  • Paul Harvey, author and editor of eight books, including The Color of Christ: The Son of God and the Saga of Race in America, as he presents “Jesus in Red, White and Black,” on Feb. 28.
  • our worship service on Thursday, Feb. 28, as we share in Holy Communion and are blessed with a mini-drama by students from our English department.
  • students and faculty with our France Study Program as they enter the second month of their time together in Europe.
  • the Provost Search Committee as they complete the on-campus interview process and deliberate on their final selection.
  • Initiative 4.4 of Courage at the Crossroads 2011-21, our strategic vision and plan, as Whitworth strengthens recruitment and retention of faculty and staff to enhance diversity and to expand leadership opportunities for women and for individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic populations.

Thanksgiving:
Lord, thank you for marvelous and gracious gift of salvation. Thank you for rescuing us from ourselves and for being present with us as we face peril. We have seen your mighty works in our lives, and we praise you for your faithfulness.

    Dear Dr. Taylor,

    I truly appreciate On Bended Knee, and the privilege of praying with you for the Whitworth community. I notice in this newsletter that The Ethics Bowl team is not mentioned. They leave today for the National Ethics Bowl competition in San Antonio, Texas. Let’s be lifting them up in prayer. I know they’ve been working tirelessly to prepare for this. Jeremy, my son, has been sick for the past few days. Nerves are running high. They could really use the peace that passes understanding.

    Blessings, Jenny TeGrotenhuis
