Theme Verse

Each year William Carey University chooses an annual theme verse which focuses the university on a biblical concept. The theme for 2021-22 is “Be Still and Know” and is based on Psalm 46:10. The world has been a chaotic place over the past year, and beyond. The need for reflection and introspection is felt by many. Our theme lends itself to the diverse needs of individual students, faculty, staff and administrators. Socrates expressed the need for self- understanding; “man, know thyself.”  We are God’s creation and the  search for self cannot be separated from the search for God. In an academic setting the emphasis is on knowledge and understanding of a vast array of material.  Quiet reflection will lead to the realization that there is a connection between today’s preparation and tomorrow’s success.
