Today I was privileged and happy to attend the installation of Dr. Alton Pollard as Dean at the Howard University School of Divinity. It was a very joyful celebration–with lots of good preaching. I felt surrounded by preachers and by a very large and responsive group of alumni, faculty, students and friends. Even more reserved Roman Catholics were saying amens at this service!
Yesterday morning I heard Dr. Pollard outline his vision for the future–soaring at some points, concrete at others. He is a dynamic and thoughtful speaker. To me it seems that he will be sprinting up the hills that lie ahead.
I was thinking on the way back here that the Consortium is blessed with excellent leaders in its institutions. Each very different to be sure–but also highly qualified and enthusiastic.
I am privileged to serve such an outstanding group.
