Nance's Graduation

The video below is the graduation ceremony of Duke Divinity School from last month.  My own brother, William Nance Hixon, was among the graduates and he will be appointed by the bishop of Mississippi to serve as pastor of a Methodist church in Natchez.  We are all very proud. 

I've been wanting to attend a worship service at Duke Chapel for a long time, perhaps a decade, and was glad to be there for that reason as well.  As far as The United Methodist Church goes, this is about as "high liturgy" as it gets.  The worship leader and Master of Ceremonies was United Methodist elder and theologian Richard Hays and the preacher is Sam Wells, out-going Dean of Duke Chapel, whose sermon was very good.
