Viewpoint: Finding Forgiveness

In the Sermon on the Mount, we read to “forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors.” In Luke, Jesus cries out while hanging on the cross “Father, forgive them for they do not know what they are doing.” On April 10, I shared those verses in chapel before our speaker, Roy Willmon, gave a powerful testimony on forgiveness during our “Struggles of the Faith” series. The idea for Mr. Willmon to spe ...

Benefiting from Beckie

By Jantzen Haley | Photography by Jeff Montgomery | On the afternoon of Feb. 13, Harding colleagues received an email announcing the retirement of Dr. Beckie Weaver after 37 years of service to the University. The announcement came from Dr. Marty Spears, provost, and his thoughts succinctly encapsulated Weaver’s passion and commitment over her time here.  “The Harding family owes her a great debt of gratitude for outstanding service as a teacher and administrator,” Spears wrote. “Dean Weaver retires as the founding dean of the College of Allied Health and professor of communication sciences and disorders. She is a beloved member of the deans’ council and has provided strong leadership on thi ...

The transforming power of forgiveness

EDITOR’S NOTE: The ”Struggles of the Faith” chapel series each semester allows a variety of speakers to discuss with the student body how their faith has helped them overcome the burdens of everyday life. Roy Willmon’s story of forgiveness April 10, 2019, literally raised the hair on my head as I was struck by the forgiving power of the Spirit in him and in his wife. Some of our readers will remember the 1995 event described in his powerful words to the two chapel audiences. I’d like to thank Dr. Bruce McLarty and the University staff for the invitation to participate in your chapel series “Struggles of the Faith.” This is my first attempt to speak to an audience like this so I ask in advanc ...

Harding: the answer to a dream

Editor’s note: When two of Harding’s oldest alumni died at the age of 102 last year, Ruby Davis Anderson Williams, who helped with preparations in Searcy upon the move from Morrilton, was one of them. Upon her death, the magazine came upon her remembrances of the beginning of Harding in Searcy in 1934. • While hard to imagine, Harding’s 100th anniversary will be here in 2024, only five years from now.

Delving deeper

By Jonathan B. Murphy | Photography by Jeff Montgomery |  Creating conversation — that is what the Honors College hopes to achieve with the L.C. Sears Collegiate Seminar Series named after the University’s first academic dean.  The Honors College was started in 1989 by Dr. Larry Long, distinguished professor emeritus and former provost.  “One of the things he wanted was to offer a lecture series, and it’s something we’ve continued all these years,” said Dr. Mike James, dean of the Honors College. “It’s designed to be academically stimulating and challenging, to create new ideas, and to look for creative ways in which we can improve each other’s lives. The goal is to encourage public dialogue ...

Stepping out of the ordinary

On the cusp of beginning the summer before my senior year at Harding, I was lost. I had quit the major with which I had begun school, drastically altering my eventual career path, and I had lost sight of why I was even studying Spanish in the first place. I recognized that I was in a rut, and what I wanted more than anything at that time was to see the world and my situation differently. Wanting t ...
