Following in the Footsteps

Jan. 21-25

God has shown you what is good, and what the LORD requires of you: To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.
Micah 6:8

Let justice roll down like a mighty river,
Righteousness like an ever-flowing stream!
Amos 5:24

This week we pray for…

  • all of the people in the Whitworth community who join their minds, hearts, hands and feet throughout this entire week with those who marched for justice, righteousness, and peace during the U.S. Civil Rights Movement, especially those who paid the ultimate price for freedom.
  • the activities taking place to educate our community about the people and events of the U.S. Civil Rights Movement, including the Tuesday-evening lecture by Kate Shuster on “Teaching the Movement: The State of Civil Rights Education in the U.S.,” the Wednesday-evening lecture by Julia Stronks on “Women and Civil Rights: Beyond Gender and the 1960s,” and the Thursday lunch discussion with Lawrence Burnley, “The Theological Vision and Evolution of Dr. King: From the Dream to Beyond Vietnam.”
  • the safety of students and faculty who are still traveling throughout the world on Jan Term trips as they finish their journeys and return home over the next week. These students include those who have studied in Hawaii, the United Kingdom, Costa Rica, Tanzania, New York, Washington, D.C., Spain, Italy, Germany, France, and multiple locations in our own state.
  • Saturday’s Alumni Night in the Fieldhouse, when alums and their families will gather for an evening of excitement and enjoyment as Whitworth’s basketball teams take on PLU.

Gracious God, we give You thanks for the faithful servants who have gone before in the struggle to make the world all that You intended it to be. They believed that all people are created in Your image, and with that firm belief they sacrificed everything in faithful witness. May we in our time be empowered to live and love for righteousness, justice and peace. Show us how to walk in the footsteps of Jesus, who gave himself for our salvation and true freedom. In Jesus name we pray. Amen!
