History does repeat itself! Check out these photos of the Shorter Chorale taken in Spain, circa 1989. The Chorale toured Spain to participate in its Festival of Sacred Music. Our 2010-2011 Chorale just returned from their tour of Spain. While there, the Chorale performed in many places, including the Colegiata Church (in which Chorale had the distinction of being the first United States choir to perform), the Monastery of Santo Domingo de Silos, the Santa Maria Cathedral in Medina de Rioseco, the Toledo Cathedral and the Basilica de Pilar.
Shorter University students are traveling the world this summer, spreading the love of Christ while serving in several mission fields. A group of our School of Nursing students are in Bulgaria, working with orphaned children in a pediatric hospital. In a recent email, nursing faculty member Pamela Dunagan, said “The students have had their hearts broken and have been experiencing the love of Christ through their ability to give their love to these babies and children.” Shorter also has several students who are performing mission work in other parts of the world, some as far away as Africa. One sophomore at Shorter who is serving in Africa has been posting updates on his Facebook page. One of his most recent postings states: “What a day: 21 professions of faith, just from my team of three, mostly Muslims. Prayed over many people, started a couple new house churches.”
Shorter is so proud of these bold young men and women who are stepping out on faith, allowing God to work through them to achieve wonderful things for His glory. Please keep our students, staff and faculty who are serving in both the United States and abroad in your prayers this summer as they testify the gospel of the grace of God.
