Beyond Boundaries: The Ecumenical Institute at Bossey

There is a page on the Methodist Church website about the Ecumenical Institute at Bossey.  They have their own newsletter, Beyond Boundaries, and the latest edition can be seen if you follow the link.

The newsletter covers a number of accounts of activities at the Institute.  Most notably is the headline account of the 62nd Graduate School, whose theme was 'Seek Peace and Pursue it'.  There is also an interesting article about the women in the Bossey Master Programmes, 2010.

There is a UK organisation, the Friends of Bossey, and this is the account of their plans, extracted from the newsletter:

Members of the UK Bossey Network held their annual meeting in London on October 18, 2010. Since 1998, the network has supported the Ecumenical Institute of Bossey through prayer, publicity, recruitment, and fund raising. They are planning their next visit to Bossey for September 2011 and will bring a group of ordinands from various theological schools in the UK. The goal is to give participants an experience of ecumenical formation and encounter with the global dimension of ecumenism and mission. The visit will provide opportunity for broad sharing and interaction with students of the Graduate School.
