"In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will, in order that we, who were the first to hope in Christ, might be for the praise of his glory. And you also were included in Christ when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation. Having believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God's possession--to the praise of his glory." Ephesians 1:11-14 NIV

CAMPUS NEWS
WHEN THE JOURNEY IS LONGER THAN THE WALK
When Katy Newton '07 received her degree this spring, many people had no idea what the 25-year-old business major had to overcome just to be able to walk across the graduation stage. Read the whole story on our Web site at: tcc.trnty.edu/new/archive/062207a/

"JUSTICE, JUSTICE SHALL YOU PURSUE . . ."
Fifteen students, representing seven institutions, recently gathered at Trinity for the annual Law, Justice and Culture Institute where they were introduced to the concept of transcendent moral truth in the Western legal tradition and challenged to integrate the biblical understanding of justice into their career callings. Find out more and see photos on our Web site at: tcc.trnty.edu/new/archive/062207/

DIEPHOUSE RETIRES AFTER A REMARKABLE 36 YEARS
A remarkable 36 years. That is the briefest summary of the work of Dr. Dan Diephouse, professor and chair of the English department, who retired this year after many years of dedicated teaching. Like one of the hundreds of books stacked on the shelves lining his office walls, the phrase "thirty-six years" binds together each day in that volume of time and covers it neatly without revealing any of the story inside.
