The Bridge, Spring 2013
This issue features a wonderful cover photo of Dr. Allan Effa, the Ray and Edit DeNui Professor of Intercultural Studies at Taylor Seminary; the photo (and two additional photos inside) were taken by his daughter, Carmyn Effa ('06), a talented photographer (and a former Taylor University College valedictorian). The back cover features a brilliant magenta-hued sunset photo by Annette van Enns ('94).
Prayer Request for Dewey Family
The Taylor community invites you to join us in praying for the Dewey family. Former president Dr. Marvin Dewey was involved in a car accident on June 9, 2013 in rural Kansas which claimed the life of his 89-year old mother, Betty, who was a passenger in the car (Dr. Dewey was driving).
Another occupant in the vehicle was Marv's 23-year old daughter Rachel, who was flown to hospital in Denver in very serious condition.
Please join us in praying for Marv, Rachel and the extended family during this time of tragic loss and recovery.
Remembering Peter Ristau
Professor Peter Ristau passed away in Edmonton on May 21, 2013. Hired as professor of Old Testament at NABC (now Taylor), Peter taught for 25 years until health issues forced him to go on long-term disability. Although his teaching career was halted in 1997, he officially retired in 2005; he was one of the longest-serving faculty members in Taylor's history.
God or Godless?
