SPECIAL PRAYER FOR TIPON SILLIMAN 2017 by Ruby Agnir (nee Ordinario)

O

ur most gracious heavenly Father, Creator of the Universe and everything in it, there are so many portions of our lives, innumerable elements, and countless aspects, that You have cared for graciously and unceasingly. We can’t name all of them one by one, Father, but at this point, we ask You to receive our heartfelt thanks for the many specific benefits relevant to this particular event for which we are here in Your beautiful island of Hawaii.

First, we thank You for guiding us in our youth to that great university, Silliman our alma mater, where we obtained the training and education that whittled and processed us into the beings that we are. We thank You that this wellspring of knowledge was founded on the principles our Lord Jesus strove to teach us, values which we need to continually uphold. We thank You for gathering us, the alumni of our beloved university, every two years to participate in a meaningful and delightful convention. For sixteen years, in such an event, we have rediscovered friends we hadn’t seen for decades and happily disclosed to one another the directions we have taken for our lives. We have reveled in recalling momentous happenings of our student days, remembering classmates, teachers, and associates, some of whom we may never see again. We thank You for inspiring many minds to creatively and sensibly plan for a rewarding time to fulfill the objectives for this reunion. We thank You for the many hands that implemented the plans without aspiring for individual recognition. If we attained what we planned for, we know that it is only because of Your guidance and blessing. To You alone be the glory. Once again, Lord, we thank You for bringing us to this beautiful country, the United States of America. We thank You for never abandoning us as we settled here where we continue to receive special freedom and comparatively peaceful dwelling places. In addition, it has given us opportunities to use what we have learned from our institutions of learning and the skills You have gifted us with, that we may be able to project to the world the veracity of our being Your children. All of this we make known to you, our Father, in the name of Your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

ĞĂƌ&ĞůůŽǁ^ŝůůŝŵĂŶŝĂŶƐĂŶĚ&ƌŝĞŶĚƐ͕ It is my pleasure and delight to greet all of the Tipon ϮϬϭϳ attendees in picturesque Waikiki Beach scheduled for May 10 – 14, 2017 at the Pacific Beach Hotel, 2490 Kalakaua Avenue, Honolulu, Hawaii. Tipon has played a major role in uniting overseas alumni in North America who are committed to support Silliman University. Silliman recognizes this as a blessing and has helped in its mission to educate especially the needy. ĞLJŽŶĚ ƚŚĞ 'ĂƚĞƐ ŽĨKƉƉŽƌƚƵŶŝƚLJ͕ our alumni has continued to exemplify the sŝĂ͕sĞƌŝƚĂƐ͕ sŝƚĂ which we are all proud of. Allow me to take this opportunity to congratulate Silliman University Alumni ŚĂƉƚĞƌ ŽĨ ,ĂǁĂŝŝ͕ /ŶĐ͘ (SUAK,) for organizing this unforgettable alumnigathering. Thank you for keeping the Silliman Spirit alive. May you have a fun-filled and meaningful alumni gathering. God bless.

F

or many generations, Sillimanians all over the world gather for a variety of reasons. But the one constant and common reason for getting together is to bond with fellow Sillimanians and to share lovely memories and stories about Silliman University and its people. When we say that Silliman University is not owned by any particular person or entity, and that it owns itself, what we really mean is that Silliman is collectively owned by the memories, aspirations, dreams, and faith of all Sillimanians, -- past, present, and future – a large collective committed to the VIA, VERITAS, VITA.

This year, Sillimanians are gatherŝŶŐ in Honolulu, Hawaii on May 10-14, 2017 for TIPON SILLIMAN ϮϬϭ7. This is a time for fun, celebration, planning, discussions, and thanksgiving. This is an occasion for us to gaze at the past and assess the future. Looking back, we can see that the Silliman community went through a long and winding path leading to this moment. Silliman accomplished much, but these accomplishments, however grand or dramatic, are not Silliman’s alone. Behind each accomplishment is an inspiring story about family and friends who supported, sustained, sacrificed, strengthened, and stood by Silliman. Let these stories continue to inspire us. Each storLJis different, with its own moments of passion, joy, happiness, tragedy, and sorrow. And each one of us will continue making our own stories. Our stories will include our own justifications for the choices we make. What we do and how we explain what we ĚŽǁŝůůƚĞůůthe world who we are. And who we are will tell the world what Silliman is or has become. Our stories will follow us for the rest of our lives. A philosopher once said that money can vanish overnight, power disappear, reputation evaporate, but character -- personal integrity -- is a rock that stays secure. I close this message with valuable words from Dr. Benjamin Mays who, among his many accomplishments, was President of Morehouse College for almost 30 years. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was among his students. Dr. Mays said: “The tragedy in life does not lie in not reaching your goal. The tragedy lies in having no goal to reach. It is not a calamity to die with dreams unfulfilled, but it is a calamity not to dream. It is not a disaster to be unable to capture your ideal, but it is a disaster to have no ideal to capture. It is not a disgrace not to reach the stars, but it is a disgrace to have no stars to reach for. Not failure, but low aim, is sin.” Congratulations to the organizers of TIPON SILLIMAN 2017, to the Silliman hŶŝǀĞƌƐŝƚLJůƵŵŶŝ Chapter ŽĨ,ĂǁĂŝŝfor hosting this renowned biennial gathering of Sillimanians all over the world, to SUACONA for its remarkable leadership, and to all who have toiled and participated to make this TIPON SILLIMAN 2017 a huge success! Godspeed!

Where the white sands and the coral Kiss the dark blue Southern seas; And the palm trees tall and stately Wave their branches in the breeze; Stands a college we all honor In our hearts without a peer; Silliman, our Alma Mater, Ever lovely, ever dear. Loyal will we be to Silliman, Here's a cheer, boys, three times three! Silliman our Alma Mater, Silliman beside the sea. Happy days of school and college Gliding swiftly like a dream; When the things of life and beauty Are more nearly what they seem; Winning vict'ries in the classroom, On the court, the track, the field; Still we work for dear old Silliman, Her honor bright to shield. When we leave the halls of Silliman, Roam the world o'er near and far; Still the faith and truth she gave us Will remain our guiding star; Or in high place or in lowly, Fortune sends us joy or pain; To our love for dear old Silliman, Loyal shall we e'er remain
