This Boy Has Commenced!

Yesterday was Commencement on The Holy Hill. And with one fell shwoosh, I quickly moved from Student to Graduate to Unemployed.  But the Holy Spirit, she is a'dancin', and there is no fear or trepidation in my heart, mind, body or soul.  For God is good, and some many of God's good people helped me get this far along the way. 

Here's the ad from Page A3 of The Washington Post (dated May 17, 2012) congratulating the VTS Class of 2012:


This qualifies as my official Commencement moment with The Rt. Rev. James J. "Bud" Shand, Bishop of the Diocese of Easton (MD), and Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Protestant Episcopal Theological Seminary in Virginia (VTS).

I am brimming with gratitude for what has passed, for all the support, thoughts and prayers from so many that I have received and continue to be blessed by, and I am excited about the future.  As Jim Wallis said in his Commencement Address, it's time to "Play Ball."  So I submit myself to Thy Mercy, gracious and loving God, and humbly say, "Here Am I, Lord.  Send Me."

What a wonderful commencement service ! It was much longer than mine and of course a larger audience ( the Chapel could never hold that many) also there were a lot more "recognition awards "and Doctoral advancements. The Speaker was great.

You looked great - I am so proud of you. Now relax a bit, June 2 is not that far away. Did you make it up to the Tower of Aspinwall and if so what was it like?

Again you have one very proud Dad.

God's peace and blessings - Love Dad
