Opera theater exhibits talents

On a Friday evening, many students head home for the weekend, but on Oct. 10, the students in the music department put on a show worth sticking around campus to attend. Junior Kathleen Shelton said it was an “opera scene show” consisting of individual songs from Sweeney Todd, The Bartered Bride, Madama Butterfly and many more. Senior Josh Hobratsch said, “I thoroughly enjoyed the show.” Kelly Criswell opened with “Adele’s Laughing Song” from  Die Fledermaus, followed by Leslie Cross with the “Lullaby” from The Consul.

Living examples of faith and business

Dr. Seuss wrote a book on the wisdom of traveling. He told the truth of life’s ups and downs for millions of 8-year-olds to read, but disregarding age, its accuracy still applies. He says going anywhere is possible which describes UMHB’s 2008 Missions Emphasis Week theme—“Oh, The Places We Go!” The event started Oct. 20 and will conclude Oct. 24 at the chapel service. “It is a great opportunity to meet missionaries from around the world,” campus missionary Erica Valenta said. “We have 35 missionaries coming who altogether have served in 35 different countries.” The spin-off of the Seuss rhyme stresses missions are anywhere and now. The week sets students up with opportunities to show up and talk. MEW will host a variety of things showcasing all the different experiences of the missionaries. “Dialogue with missionaries; they’re incredible people, but real people none the less,” junior co-director Dennis Greeson said. “They are here to meet with you. Go to the different events and seminars, grab a missionary for lunch or dinner, take advantage of the opportunity to simply learn and have your worldview expanded.” The missionaries brought more than a speech. They offer their lives as an example of what being a missionary looks like. Dr. Jim King, dean of the College of Business, uses many missionaries with business backgrounds in his class to show students tangible proof that missions and work do interweave. He said, “Faculty members can talk about the integration of faith and business to accomplish kingdom purposes. And some of us have practical experience in what is normally called Business as Mission.  But when students have real business people like Dwight Nordstrom telling the students how they run real businesses and accomplish kingdom purposes, it carries a lot of weight in the eyes of students.” As a teacher, King recognizes the importance of exposing students to information that could potentially encourage them to combine their skill and work desires with a kingdom view. “It is especially important that faculty do everything possible to help students understand how they can utilize the gifts and talents that God has provided them to make a difference in their professional fields,” he said. “This is true for all majors without exception.  I believe that MEW provides the most convenient vehicle through which faculty can bring in experienced individuals in many, many majors to help the faculty give credibility to what they are trying to show students about the integration of their faith into their chosen fields.” King said of the many things to do, he finds the Missions Fair and seminars to be most helpful. “I strongly encourage students...
