God’s Good News

Sept. 21- 27

Galatians 1:6-2:14

This week we pray for…

  • students, that God will give them wisdom, knowledge and understanding in their classes.
  • our freshmen as they get started here – for community, belonging, discernment about what to commit to, and excitement about their classes.
  • Carl E. Olson, Catholic theologian, author and editor of Ignatius Insight and Catholic World Report. On Monday he will speak on Theosis in a lecture titled, “God, Grace and Partaking in Divine Nature.”
  • the Whitworth community as we gather for Tuesday’s Chapel Worship, as Dean of Spiritual Life Forrest Buckner preaches from Galatians, and for Hosanna’s student led worship, prayer and reflection Tuesday night.
  • Community Building Day on Wednesday, which provides an opportunity for approximately 1,000 Whitworth faculty, staff, and students to engage in service throughout Spokane County.
  • Awake services as students gather for a time of fellowship, fun, worship and scripture on Wednesday.
  • Whitworth Associate Professor of History Anthony Clark, Ph.D., as he presents his first public lecture as Lindaman Endowed Chair on the topics of religious freedom and the reign of God. Clark’s talk will explore Christian understandings of the reign of God in a world seemingly torn apart by sectarianism and religious difference.
  • Chapel worship on Thursday as the community comes together around the Lord’s Supper.
  • the new Diversity Cabinet as members begin their important work of leading the campus in the implementation of the Institutional Diversity Committee’s recommendations that will help Whitworth better live out its Christ-centered mission in regards to diversity, equity and inclusion.

Lord you are so merciful. Thank you for providing grace and mercy; You are a good God that comes to those that need You. Let Your desires be our desires, that we will not stray away from this Good News, this Gospel you have so freely given to us. Provide your grace through protection from the harm that seems to come to us physically, emotionally, and spiritually. We are grateful for the strength to get through each day, because You are there to provide it for us and we are so thankful.
