Sheer Grace

Sept. 28-Oct. 4
Galatians 2:20
I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

This week we pray for…

  • our students, as they continue to invest time and hard work in their studies; we ask that they will be motivated to stay focused and on track.
  • Tuesday’s chapel service, as the entire community seeks to grow in faith and in the knowledge of Christ.
  • Hosanna, Whitworth’s student-led ministry that seeks, each Tuesday evening, to allow students to engage in authentic worship while incorporating service elements in both new and familiar ways. All are invited to share in this special community as we discover the renewing grace of Jesus Christ through Scripture, reflection, and worship.
  • the Fall Volunteer Fair, on Wednesday, as students, faculty, and staff meet local organizations that need volunteers. The fair is a great opportunity for students to find ways to plug into and serve the Spokane community.
  • the Whitworth Student Symposium, a five-part lecture series featuring the independent scholarly research of Whitworth students. Previous lectures have featured the appropriate scope of self-defense legislation, the legitimacy of intelligent-design theory, philosophical approaches to disagreement, and divestment as a response to anthropogenic climate change.
  • Wednesday’s AWAKE service which focuses from the perspective of college students on gospel, worship, and fellowship. AWAKE is also the home of Whitworth’s Fellowship of Christian Athletes, but all are invited.
  • Thursday’s community worship service, as we gather around the table to celebrate the Lord’s Supper, as we learn and grow in our various gifts, and as we offer our lives to God through diverse worship styles. Services are led by Whitworth University choirs, sacred dancers, and many other members of the Whitworth community.
  • Why Whitworth visit days, as we welcome prospective students to our campus with an admissions presentation, lunch, a parent seminar, a student panel, and tours of our residence halls.

Lord, we are so thankful as men and women of God to participate with Christ in self-sacrifice. We are crucified to our own desires and life plans, and we live no longer for ourselves, but for Christ, with whom we are now one.
