A Message from Sarah Donovan, Principal of Extended Educational Programs

May 5th is recognized as the National Day of Prayer. The National Day of Prayer is an annual observance held on the first Thursday of May, inviting people of all faiths to pray for our nation. It was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. Since its inception, this day has continually united Americans from all socio-economic, political, and ethnic backgrounds in prayer while also encouraging personal repentance and righteousness in the culture. The National Day of Prayer belongs to all Americans and is a day that transcends differences, bringing together citizens to celebrate our most beloved freedom; the freedom to humbly come before God and seek His guidance in prayer. There is comfort and hope in knowing that on this day, the heavens will be filled with the hearts of those across the nation.

To Him Who Keeps Us From Stumbling – A Devotional from PJ Wehry

As I prepare for my class tomorrow, I feel the heavy responsibility of teaching young minds. In the book of Jude, Christ’s disciple Jude warns his audience about the false teachers who have infiltrated their church. The picture he paints is a frightening one. False teachers are selfish, deceitful men with destructive appetites. However, as Jude concludes, he leaves us unafraid. He finishes the book with a doxology that gives us confidence. “To him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy— to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen.” As Christians, we have a responsibility to be intellectually robust, but we are sustained, guided, and loved by the God who not only knows the truth, He is the truth. With His help, we will not stumble.
