Senior Reflections

May 3-10

Scripture:
“And you shall remember the entire way that the Lord your God has led you….”
Deuteronomy 8:2

In this is penultimate week of the spring semester, we pray for…

  • our students to feel God’s strength, wisdom and peace as they negotiate the next two weeks, which are packed with academic responsibilities. May our students learn well and be open to new insights inspired by God’s spirit as the spirit supports their diligent efforts in their studies.
  • for Whitworth staff and faculty, whose responsibilities mount at this time of year as they work to support our returning students in the completion of the academic year and to prepare graduating students for the end of their time at Whitworth. May they recognize the gifts God has given to all of us in the privilege of working here at Whitworth.
  • the members of our student music ensembles who will give their final performances this week. These groups include the Whitworth Symphony Orchestra, Jubilation Dance Ministry, and the Whitworth Choir and Whitworth Chamber Singers. As they express the gifts of music and dance, may each student be reminded of God’s faithfulness during their time here.
  • Tuesday chapel, where members of the Class of 2016 Rebekah Brown and Spencer Ansett reflect upon their journeys here at Whitworth and as the community prays for all of our graduating seniors.
  • Thursday’s Community Chapel, as we gather one last time around the table to celebrate the Lord’s Supper. As we do this in remembrance of Jesus, may we also be reminded of God’s daily presence, which sustains us on the journey of Christian faith.
  • all retiring faculty and staff, as these faithful women and men mark their contributions to Whitworth measured in years – and, in some cases, in decades. May their hearts be filled with gratitude for all that God has done in and through each of them, and may the community express our deep appreciation for their service and devotion to Whitworth’s Christian mission.

Thanksgiving:
Lord, we are so grateful for your faithfulness to every member of the Whitworth community – to those present here on campus and to our alums who are scattered across the world. Your presence has guided us along the way, as you have been our travelling companion on life’s journey. Help us to remember well, with grateful hearts. Open our eyes to see you at work, even in what seem to be the darkest moments. Thank you for restoring our strength and peace through the presence of Jesus Christ, our Lord, in whose name we pray. Amen.
