Educational Institutions in Wesleyan and Methodist Traditions celebrate Advent & Christmas

The President and the Executive Secretary of the International Association of Methodist Schools, Colleges, and Universities (IAMSCU) shared their Advent and Christmas greetings with members and friends of the association! In a letter addressed to the whole worldwide network, they reflect on the current situation of the word and reaffirm the message of peace which has been shared by Christians for millennia. As they reiterate this important value of the Christian and Methodist tradition, they also address the current climate on many campuses worldwide and the tensions between free speech, academic freedom, and cases of hate speech and persecution of students of students and administrators at schools, colleges, and universities. As an alternative to the polarization that characterizes public discourse today, IAMSCU insists on the true message of the Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany: “Let be peace on Earth”! The letter was shared in English and Spanish.
