Faith Demonstrated in Action

April 19-26

Scripture:
“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.”
Matthew 7:21

This week we pray for…

  • our graduating seniors, who will have multiple opportunities to prepare for the end of their time at Whitworth, including the graduation fair, mock interviews, senior recitals and other final performances in music and theatre. May these events remind the members of the Class of 2015 of God’s faithfulness to each of them throughout their time at the university.
  • members of our Pirate Athletics teams as they travel to compete in various sports and events.
  • Tuesday Community Worship as we continue the study of the Sermon on the Mount, with Campus Pastor Mindy Smith preaching from Matthew 7:21-23 regarding the importance of Christian faith being demonstrated in action. May the community listen with ears to hear so that our trust in Jesus will be expressed in the way we live.
  • this week’s events that will be devoted to the theme of Mental Health, with presentations, speakers, and movies addressing various topics. May this be a week of honest reflection and learning as we all seek to be whole in all of our lives as we explore together the God-created complex mystery of mind-body-spirit integration.
  • Friday’s “Why Whitworth” Day, as prospective students visit our campus to attend an admissions presentation, a tour, a class visit, a student panel, and a residence hall tour. In these last days before the May 1 deposit deadline for the upcoming school year, please give wisdom to every prospective student who is still in the process of deciding the best school to attend.
  • Saturday night’s 45th annual Hawaiian Luau, which will present the best of Hawai’ian culture as our students and their families host the community in a delicious meal and great entertainment. God’s diverse creation will be on display as we celebrate the myriad ways in which we have all been created so distinctly in God’s image.

Thanksgiving:
Gracious Lord, you are the God of integration – connecting everything in and through our Savior and Friend Jesus Christ. This is a week of connections through the university. Help each of us to see how your grace binds all things together. Give us eyes to see you at work in the actions of our Christian brothers and sisters. We want to be the reflection of the truth and love that Jesus incarnated in his own life. May he shine through us. Amen!
