Encountering Faith; Transforming Life


Megan Dickinson, class of ’23, and Laura Toomb, senior lecturer in Communications, are this year's Miryam Award recipients. Laura Toomb has been reaching out to grieving mothers who have lost children, following the tragic death of her son. Megan Dickinson has led a shift in the culture of UD’s Club Water Polo team to be more welcoming to women.  Campus Ministry's Center for Social Concern presents the Miryam Award each year to someone who has contributed to improving and advancing the climate for women on campus.  Both Miryam Award recipients will be honored at a ceremony on March 27th at 3pm in the Torch Lounge in Kennedy Union. Please RSVP to if you plan to attend.

Let's not forget

God of mercy, We pray for the people of Türkiye and Syria following the recent earthquakes. We mourn the death and destruction. and pray for those who have died and those who grieve. Lord, bring them comfort, strength and renewed hope. We hold in our hearts those who are injured, and those who have lost loved ones, livelihoods, and homes. Lord, bring them comfort, strength and renewed hope. Sustain and guide all responding to this disaster. Grant those affected courage and resilience, as they rebuild their lives and communities. Lord, bring them comfort, strength and renewed hope. Inspire us to unite in solidarity, acting swiftly and generously, so that help may reach all who need it. Lord, bring them comfort, strength and renewed hope. Amen.

After One Year

Gracious and Merciful God, We pray today for the Ukrainian people and ask for Your intervention in this senseless war levied against them by Russia. We pray, O God, for protection and that there would be peace. We pray for restoration and renewed hope. We pray for the families, especially, the children living through the horrors of war and all the upheaval and tribulation it brings. We also pray for those protesting in Russia against these violent acts by their government. We ask that You would protect, cover and keep these protesters as they put their bodies on the line in the name of what is just and righteous. We pray for the entire world community, including the leaders in our own country. Give them wisdom and ingenuity to respond in ways that ends this war and moves us all to a world where Your peace abides. Hear the cries of Your people, O God. Lord, have mercy. Christ, have mercy. Amen.
