Update on Current Events at JUC

November 18, 2008: Dr. Paul Wright,

I’m heading off to Providence, RI, to represent Jerusalem University College at the annual meetings of the Evangelical Theological Society and before representatives of JUC’s Consortium of Associated Schools, Nov 19-21. There’s a lot of interest in JUC’s programs, and a lot to tell. It’s always good to see folks face-to-face, either on my travels to the US, or over here in Jerusalem.  

I hope that you are able to scroll through the pictures that we post periodically on our web site. They tell our story better than my words are able to do. The activities, the smiles, the on-hand-in-the-land learning: this is what we do so well. A few days ago we were visited by a re-accreditation team from the Asia Theological Society. One representative came from Japan, and two from Jordan. Their visit was engaging and productive. Toward the end of the visit, the head of the team told me: “your faculty keeps talking about ‘we,’ not ‘me’ and ‘them.’” What a great testimony! In its formal report, the team wrote: “JUC should be commended for the international learning community it has fostered with respect and fairness towards all on the basis of its principles and thorough scholarship.” While it’s nice to be recognized, its even better to be affirmed in what I already knew: JUC students and faculty are tops! 

Hands-on activities outside of the classroom this fall included olive-picking on the grounds of East Jerusalem Baptist Church (the fall harvest here is olives, not so much apples), serving Iraqi and Kurdish children who are waiting for, or recovering from, heart surgery at Shevet Achim (the organization for which Martha Berg works), and of course our own Talent Show and Fall Festivus, complete with a mixed-up dinner and dress-up.  

We have hosted three short-term, intensive study groups this fall. In October we welcomed a church group from Cornerstone Bible Fellowship in Bermuda led by Pastor Gary Simons and taught by Dr. Perry Phillips. That was followed by our regular Pastor-Parishioner program, instructed by Dr. Carl Rasmussen. At the moment Carl is also teaching a three-week program for Westmont College. We of course are mindful of last weekend’s fire that damaged and destroyed parts of Westmont’s campus, including the homes of several of the Westmont faculty. The home of Drs. Ken and Kim Kihlstrom, who are with us in Jerusalem as co-leaders of the Westmont group, was one of those that was completely destroyed. Our hearts, as I am sure yours, are with Ken and Kim and their family, and we pray for special blessings for them from the open hand of God. 

I will be meeting with the JUC board of directors this week, in Providence RI. While there are always challenges at hand, I plan on presenting a report that is as upbeat as is our operations. Thank you for supporting our ministry and work on Mt. Zion. It’s great to have you aboard.
