“Christmas as a Revolutionary Story of Love”
Christmas Message from the Office of the Principal

Dear Church Leaders, Partners, and the Pacific Theological College

Bula Vinaka! God’s grace through Christ in the Spirit has made possible our voyage this year through the unpredictable currents of life. May God be praised!

Christmas is not an expensive story of gifts and Christmas trees. Rather it is a simple, yet revolutionary story of love and divine justice manifested in the life of Jesus of Nazareth who challenged the oppressive cultures and traditions of his time to liberate the less privileged and to reconnect us to God, to each other, and to the whole of creation.

May this simple story heal the present in order to make peace with past to transform the future!

I take this opportunity as Principal Elect, on behalf of the College, to wish you a joyous and fruitful Christmas and a New Year full of hope and promise. I also take this opportunity to wish our own PTC community a Holiday full of blessings.



Rev. Dr. Upolu Luma Vaai
