O Lord and Master of my life, take from me the spirit of laziness, despair, lust for power, and idle talk. Grant rather a spirit of humility, of patience, and of love to me thy servant. And, O Lord and King, grant me to see my own errors, And not to judge my sisters and brothers, For blessed art thou unto ages of ages. Amen. -St. Ephraim the Syrian #Lent #formationfriday

Violent extremism is the use of violence against civilians to achieve a political goal. Globalization is generating alarming conflicts that current institutions are not equipped to understand or handle. Both contribute to psychological, cultural, religious, economic, political, and military conflicts around the world. The Summer Peacebuilding Institute has courses on approaches to violent extremism and globalism to help you understand the current world situation and come up with approaches to achieve good governance, participatory decision-making, social justice, and human security.

Today we share a Lenten reflection from student, Charlie Tinsley. "This is one of my favorite songs in general, but it’s especially meaningful during Lent. We have the tendency to take the idea that we are made in God's image and elevate that to heights that do more harm than good. This song is about keeping things in perspective. There are so many lines worth reflecting on: "As if you were made after we saw our own faces, and knew we were gods enough." "We know nothing changes too slowly." "And if we are the body, how'd the pretty men get so ugly? How'd he get all these spaces between each limb?" "if there is one thing bigger than my head, that's the distance I've been mislead." The challenge is to answer a question within ourselves. Are we striving to live into the image God created for us or are we creating our perception of God out of our own images?” #lent

A message from Dr. Melody Cash, EMU Nursing Department Chairperson: I am pleased to announce that our CCNE visitors found "no compliance issues" in any of the 4 standards we are required to meet for accreditation of the MSN program. There were also no official recommendations. The visitors will submit their support to CCNE where it will eventually be reviewed by the Accreditation Review Committee. While we may not have final word on our status until November, I anticipate the program will receive the full 10 year accreditation. The credit for such a successful visit goes to Dr. Don Tyson and the countless hours he spent writing the self study and creating the virtual "Resource Room" on Moodle. The CCNE survey team commented that the fully virtual resource room utilizing our learning management system "Moodle" should be a "template for other schools". The visitors also commented on how helpful the self study was to them. Many thanks go to Dr. Dawn Lambert for collaboration on the School Nurse concentration as well as to all faculty and staff in the MSN program. To Linda Sauder, a sincere thank you for all the "behind the scenes" planning and logistics.

Congratulations to Dana Farrar, MSN alumnus of 2016 and current Instructor at EMU's undergraduate and RN to BS nurisng programs.
