Keep shining dear graduates. Shine on the poor, the captives, the down and out, those in need, the oppressed, the broken hearted. Shine forth with neighborly love and compassion.
“The story that is Goshen College has always contained within it the narrative seeds of the vision described in Scripture: a “tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruit … with leaves for the healing of the nations” (Revelation 22:2). Not one, not two, not six, but 12 kinds of fruit. All on one tree. Truly it is a tree of life!”
Each year Goshen College spends an entire year focused on one of the five core values that lie at the heart and soul of our community life. . . becoming Christ-centered, passionate learners, compassionate peacemakers, servant leaders, and global citizens. Today, we begin a year-long workout about the meaning, the significance, and the consequences of living out the core value of “compassionate peacemaking.”
