Greetings from the United Methodist Church by Bishop Peggy A. Johonson '75, P'05

Greetings to President Lewis Thayne, the 18th president of Lebanon Valley College, on the occasion of his inauguration. Lebanon Valley College has a special place in my heart as it is my alma mater and the alma mater of two other United Methodist bishops.  We celebrate the historical relationship of this College with the United Brethren Church, the Evangelical United Brethren Church, and United Methodist Church. The motto of the College, “The truth will set you free,” comes from the Gospel of John. It is one of the hallmarks of this institution that the truth that comes from God and knowledge will enhance the body, soul, and mind of the student.  I celebrate the new leadership that Dr. Thayne brings to this institution and pray for God’s richest blessing on work.
