This marks the end of the academic year for I Cantori of Walla Walla University. Please join me in thanking the hard-working students who comprise this small choir including the accompanist Frankie Bones. The prelude presents a new work written for I Cantori by WWU alumni Reginald Unterseher and his wife Sheila Dunlop. In an introductory note, the composer explains that this piece “follows the tradition of hymns and spirituals such as ‘Shall We Gather At The River,’ ‘Deep River,’ and ‘When Peace, Like a River.’ The text follows:

Just below senses, the river flows, boundless

We know it in dreams,
wake to fading memory, with fresh tears

The river, the home of dreams, where all those we love gather

The meadow of sentient immortal flowers, Colors impossible, Beings both here and gone, Air infused with wisdom

The river flows boundless bringing us home.

-Kraig Scott

The University Church budget funds many important aspects of our local ministry. Although pastors' salaries are funded by donations marked "tithe", the University Church budget is what subsidizes our amazing K-12 school programs at Walla Walla Valley Academy and Rogers Adventist School. It also makes our worship services and broadcast ministry possible. Thank you for your generous and systematic support!

Kagiso comes highly recommended by the Associate Director of Communication at the General Conference and she and her 11-year-old son will be moving to College Place for the two years of her education. She has saved the funds for the airfare over, but needs sponsorship for the education itself. The Center for Media Ministry has some scholarship money available that will need to be matched in order to make this educational dream a reality for Kagiso.
