Abe and Diane Bible (serving in Ukraine) have asked for prayer that a way will be opened for Abe to receive his hearing aids back from the United States. The hearing aids were sent home for repairs and were going to be returned to Abe by friends scheduled to visit Ukraine in April. Because of the coronavirus, however, that trip was cancelled. Abe is not able to effectively carry out his work without these hearing aids.
Malone University Pendle Hill Pledge
Excerpts from Malone University News Brief 6/7/20

Malone’s Pendle Hill Pledge is the University’s campus-wide commitment to provide opportunities for all students to find purposeful and meaningful lives and careers through personal reflection, one-on-one mentoring, required hands-on learning (internships, off-campus study, intensive research, or service-learning), and career skill-building in their required coursework.

“Our entire curriculum and co-curricular opportunities have long encouraged students to find meaning and purpose in the call to seek Christ’s Kingdom First,” said Greg Miller, provost. “We want to continue to equip our graduates for service in their churches, communities, and the world, and that begins with ensuring that all students are challenged and supported in finding their sense of purpose.”

“The Pendle Hill Pledge is distinctive in higher education because we recognize that God informs how we view the world and our roles in it,” said Scott Waalkes, professor of international politics. “Sometimes clarity from God about our roles comes on a hilltop, as it did for George Fox (one of the founders of the Friends tradition that shapes Malone) on Pendle Hill in England. And sometimes clarity comes through a series of little moments that God orchestrates for our learning. Either way, we believe there’s no calling without a Caller.”

The end goal of the Pendle Hill Pledge is to empower Malone graduates to enter their careers and lives committed to serving the church, community, and world. For additional information about the Pendle Hill Pledge, watch the video below and click here .

Quote for the Week

"For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of His glory He may grant you to be strengthened with power through HIs Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith - that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge that you may be filled with all the fullness of God." - Ephesians 3:14-19 (ESV)
