Abandon all hope ye who intern here!
Welcome everyone back to the Wesley Foundation at MSU. We hope you all had a great Thanksgiving break. After taking a week off, we’re back to asking the tough questions.

Our Next Meeting…
This week we will be talking about the nature of hell. What is it? Is it real? Why does it matter?
We’ll be examining all different views and perspectives on the subject, and asking the difficult questions.
If you are interested in joining us, please send us an email for a zoom link! We meet Thursdays at 8p.m.
Prayers and Concerns
We take the well being of those in our community seriously. If you have a need or prayer request, please do not hesitate to contact us.
We also continue to wish for the best of all of our students during this difficult time.
Director’s Spotlight – Dietrich Bonhoeffer
“When Christ calls a (person) he bids (them) come and die.” – Bonhoeffer, The Cost of Discipleship
Dietrich Bonhoeffer was a Lutheran priest during the Nazi regime in Germany. He was an outspoken critic of Hitler and Nazism from its earliest days when many others remained silent.
He, and those who followed him were oppressed due to their anti-nationalist sentiments and a theology that focused on the centrality of Christ and a servant hearted community.
He was eventually arrested and placed in a concentration camp where he continued to generously give to others from the small amount that he had, and preached hope to those suffering. He was eventually executed after his final sermon on April 8th, 1945.
His life and theology would continue to have a large influence in Christian theology, and help to provide inspiration to the Civil Rights Movement in the USA, and the Anti-Communist Movement in the USSR.
That’s all for this week’s edition of Wesley Weekly! Please know that we are thankful for all of you.
