A message from SPU President Dan Martin to faculty, staff, and students.
"After reflecting on the prayer service with University Chaplain Bo Lim on Monday, I am moved, in fact, compelled to communicate with you following the white supremacist and racially motivated events this past weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia. My thoughts and prayers have centered around emotions of disgust and anger, as well as deep sadness for Heather Heyer, Lieutenant H. Jay Cullen, Trooper Berke M. M. Bates, and others who were directly impacted, and those in our own community coping with pain and anger. I feel it is vital to share my thoughts as we stand together against acts of violence and hatred.
Years ago, in my inaugural address I spoke about SPU’s commitment to the ideals and values of diversity, and the University’s endeavor to model reconciliation efforts in our world. I unpacked the idea of 'what must go and what must come.' I think these words resonate now:
Division must go, unity must come.
Hate must go, love must come.
Turmoil must go, peace must come …
Racism must go, relationship must come.
Conflict must go, reconciliation must come …
Sickness must go, healing must come.
Despair must go, hope must come.
This list reminds us we live in a divided world, a divisive world. We live among fissures, gaps, and injustices. What should our response be?
I am calling our community to prayer to seek God’s wisdom for how we might respond – individually and corporately. Every Monday at noon from now until Christmas break, let’s join together in Martin Square to pray for the healing and reconciliation of our nation. I have asked Bo to prepare a common prayer for our community each week.
It is my hope that in these moments, God will impress what further response each one of us can make in our lives. Sandra Richards Mayo, our new vice president for diversity, equity, and inclusion, reminded me today that as a Christian university we must seek the wisdom of the Holy Spirit 'to overcome such senseless and egregious acts of violence.' She aptly added: 'The acts that we saw on Saturday are antithetical to the Free Methodist Church, which has roots in the abolitionist movement and foundational principles of racial reconciliation. As employees of Seattle Pacific, we stand with all our students and alumni who are affected by the historic trauma of past racial wrongs and current reverberations.'
Let me end my message to you with a reminder from Psalm 46, as Bo shared in the chapel service yesterday:
God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change, though the mountains shake in the heart of the sea; though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble with its tumult.
There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy habitation of the Most High. God is in the midst of the city; it shall not be moved; God will help it when the morning dawns.
The nations are in an uproar, the kingdoms totter; he utters his voice, the earth melts.
The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge.
