“Carving the Character” is the theme for fall semester’s Week of Prayer hosted by Southwestern Adventist University on Oct. 18-23.

This semester’s Week of Prayer will have a different structure than in years past. Instead of having one speaker, the Spiritual Life and Development team elected to have 10 speakers.   Each day there will be two speakers, with two Southwestern faculty speaking during each session.  Each time a speaker goes up they will have a chance to share their thoughts on the fruit of the Spirit, which are found in Galatians 5:22-23.
