The Installation of Andrew B. McGowan as Dean and President

T

he Tuesday of Convocation Week—October 21, 2014—witnessed the formal installation of Berkeley’s new dean and president. Andrew B. McGowan had been hard at work since August 1, but all elements of the Berkeley family gathered for his formal induction into office. The event occurred during Evensong in Marquand Chapel, on the Solemnity of the Feast of St. Luke Our Patron, in the presence of an overflow congregation of trustees, alumni, faculty, students, and a multitude of friends old and new. Officiant at Evensong was Interim Director of Anglican Formation and Associate Dean, The Reverend Lynda Z. Tyson ’05. The Berkeley choir sang the psalm, the canticles (Stanford in G), and the anthem (David Hurd’s setting of George Herbert’s Love bade me welcome). University Organist Professor Thomas Murray played the prelude, postlude, and hymns, and Robert Bennesh assisted with the canticles. Chapel Musicians Tate Addis and Jacob Street conducted. Professor Carolyn Sharp ’94 and Development Director Pamela Wesley Gomez read the lessons. Berkeley students Win Bassett ’15, Jessie Gutgsell ’16, and Greg Stark ’17 served as acolytes.

Since Dean McGowan was called by the Berkeley trustees with the approval of the Dean of Yale Divinity School, he was officially installed by David R. Wilson, Chair of the Berkeley Trustees, and Professor Gregory E. Sterling, Dean of Yale Divinity School: “Having committed yourself to this work, do not forget the trust of those who have chosen you. Care alike for all members of the Divinity School community. Mentor them as they grow in the knowledge and love of the Lord. Nourish them and strengthen them to glorify God in this life and in the life to come. Represent this community in the councils of the Church and lead it with vision into the future. By your words, and in your life, proclaim the Gospel. Love and serve God’s people….May the Lord who has given you the will to do these things, give you the grace and power to perform them.” Emily Bakemeier, Deputy Provost of Yale University, brought greetings and welcome from the greater university community. Student Trustees Andrew Moore ’15 and Jessie Gutgsell ’16 presented Bishop Samuel Seabury’s chalice, and The Reverend Canon Patricia S. Mitchell ’02, President of the Graduate Society, presented the Berkeley Seal (which was placed around the neck of the new dean). After Dean McGowan delivered the sermon, The Right Reverend Ian T. Douglas, Bishop of Connecticut, offered the final Blessing. In addition to serving as dean and president, The Very Reverend Dr. Andrew Brian McGowan is also McFaddin Professor of Anglican Studies at Yale Divinity School.

he Berkeley Divinity School motto is drawn from 2 Corinthians 10:16, Paul’s reference to a mission “into the regions beyond”; this expansive vision is echoed in the Acts reading tonight (1:1-8) for our observance of St Luke, which presents the spread of the Gospel in terms of a sort of theological manifest destiny, “from Jerusalem and Judea even to the ends of the earth.” But as you sit listening to an Australian Dean, fetched from the ends of the earth and from regions beyond anywhere our founders could have had in mind, you must surely be asking—well, “beyond what”? The first and most straightforward meaning of the “regions beyond” was of course geographical. And this vision of an expansive mission is reflected not just in the School’s motto but in its name. Anglo-Irish philosopher Bishop George Berkeley managed to become our founder, in spiritual terms at least, without knowing anything of the fact. Berkeley, previously Dean of Derry, travelled to Rhode Island in 1728 and lived there awaiting promised support for a new college to be based in Bermuda. The funds never arrived, and he left again in 1731, giving his property to Yale—the first Berkeley-Yale partnership! Berkeley became Bishop of Cloyne in Ireland, and died in Oxford in 1753, a century before Bishop John Williams of Connecticut became the material founder of the School and borrowed Berkeley’s name for this project in theological education. At the dedication of the original St Luke’s Chapel in Middletown in 1861, Williams referred to the naming of the School as intended “to commemorate the pious zeal of Bishop Berkeley in the cause of clerical education, and his relations to our early Church in Connecticut”. Speaking myself as another intercontinental dean, Berkeley’s willingness to go into “regions beyond” has a certain resonance as an example. Although a famous philosopher, Berkeley’s popularity in mid-nineteenth century America had much to do with his interest in a pioneering and expansive Christianity, by Williams’ time seen walking in step with Manifest Destiny. Berkeley had penned famous verses about the decrepit old world and the hopeful new to express the basis of his project: The muse, disgusted at an age and clime Barren of every glorious theme, In distant lands now waits a better time, Producing subjects worthy fame. The last stanza of that same poem (“On the Prospect of Planting Arts and Learning in America”) famously begins “Westward the course of empire takes its way”—an inspiring or perhaps a fearsome phrase, depending on your race and language. This line of Berkeley’s also inspired the founders of another educational institution on the West coast of this country to choose his name for their new town, a few years after this School had taken it first. So while this is the earlier meaning of our “going beyond,” it has elements that we ourselves need to go beyond; we need to claim that expansive and global perspective, but not the imperial and colonial visions grounded in exceptionalism; we need to go beyond them, to loving service of a diverse and fragile world. This leads to a second “beyond.” George Berkeley’s own movers apparently uploaded “fifty-eight boxes, whereof fifty-five contain only books” when he came here. I think Felicity and I between us may have beaten Berkeley on this front at least, if not in erudition. In fact when Berkeley left New England and gave Yale his books he doubled the size of the University library at the time.


Berkeley was obviously not skimping on the resources that would provide those hoped-for students with the best that Greco-Roman and Judeo-Christian thought had to offer. He was intending to create not just a shadow of institutions like his own Trinity College, Dublin, but to go beyond them with a new bright exemplar, of which the old world’s universities would seem mere types and shadows. This ambition was a genuine point of continuity when Berkeley Divinity School was actually founded. In the same sermon at the dedication of the first St Luke’s Chapel, Bishop Williams wryly observed that “An unlearned clergy is one of the sorest evils that God allows the Church to impose upon herself.” Heaven knows God seems to be getting more permissive in this regard; theological education has seen better days—better months and years even—and the danger may be not just that we fail to go beyond past ambitions, books, boxes and all, but that we actually retreat from the demands of theological learning because the Church often seems to have forgotten its usefulness. It is of course now apparent that there are other ways of doing theological education than the residential seminary, and also that there are forms of scholarship and wisdom inconceivable to Williams or Berkeley; but here at Berkeley and Yale, set in one of the world’s great universities, our calling is not to fall back from the ideal they pursued but to go beyond it, to provide even better education not just for ministers and teachers but for theological educators themselves, and to do so in a setting where denominational tradition and ecumenical conversation are friends, not enemies, offering depth and breadth respectively. Beyond exceptionalism, then, to a global vision; beyond ignorance and sectarianism to an expansive pursuit of knowledge; but the third “beyond” is most fundamental, and

most elusive. When he set out for New England, Berkeley had already made a name for himself as one of the great philosophers of the day. While the history of Western thought now often skips from John Locke to David Hume, it used often to stop and sojourn with George Berkeley. You’ve nearly all heard something of the issues he presented, if not under his name; remember that freshman philosophy class discussion about whether a tree that falls in the forest makes a noise if there is no-one around to hear it? This is Berkeley to a tee, although he never used the example himself. We could put it thus: the external world means nothing, if we do not grasp it in thought.  Berkeley’s idealism, his philosophical insistence that everything we know has to be thought into being, has been widely misunderstood as a sort of pure subjectivism. Its most famous if not its most sophisticated critic was none other than the great lexicographer Dr Samuel Johnson, whose response to Berkeley’s idealism was recorded by Johnson’s biographer Boswell: “After we came out of the church we stood talking for some time together of Bishop Berkeley’s ingenious sophistry to prove the nonexistence of matter, and that every thing in the universe is merely ideal. I observed, that though we are satisfied his doctrine is not true, it is impossible to refute it. I never shall forget the alacrity with which Johnson answered, striking his foot with mighty force against a large stone, till he rebounded from it—‘I refute it thus.’” Johnson has even more sore-toed sympathisers today, in an age where materialism is often taken for granted, than in the eighteenth century; but he and they alike fail to grasp one key thing about Berkeley’s idealism. Berkeley did not think that objects or things really just came and went as we ourselves perceive them or think of them, but rather that they exist because they are perceived and willed to exist, by the mind of God. So I for one would like to think that Bishop Williams was making a pious philosophical joke of sorts in choosing the name for us. Bishop Berkeley had apparently managed only to think of his seminary; but in the end, even a century later, that proved enough— at least when God thought of it too. In the end no Divinity School, no Church, no human being, can escape the question of what being and truth itself lies beyond our immediate knowledge; unless we affirm that all our exploration, all our passion for justice and truth, is itself a form of “divinity,”

and that in the end we are God’s big idea, rather than the reverse, we stub our toes on the rocks of a self-defeating pragmatism. So there are still frontiers left to explore and seas to cross at Berkeley. Let us be a community characterised by diversity and curiosity, inspired by justice and wisdom, and together with St Luke and all the saints—George Berkeley and John Williams among them—go beyond what we already know, and thus find the one whose thought we are, and whose love we share.

Berkeley Honors Three Anglican Stalwarts At the installation for the new dean, Berkeley awarded three honorary degrees: Victor R. Atta-Baffoe is Bishop of Cape Coast in Ghana. Educated at St. Nicholas Seminary in Cape Coast, he came to Yale for his S.T.M. and went on to earn a Ph.D. at King’s College in the University of London. After serving as a parish priest, he returned to St. Nicholas as dean. He was enthroned as the fourth bishop of Cape Coast last June. He has served the Anglican Communion on many commissions, including the Inter-Anglican Theological and Doctrinal Commission and the Covenant Design Group. He is the author of two books on Anglicanism in Africa. Berkeley awarded him the degree of Doctor of Divinity, honoris causa, “for your commitment to the Gospel, your passion for preparing men and women for the service of the church, and

for your vision of an Anglican Communion united in mission and ministry.” Ann Reynolds Lawler Dewey (Mrs. Thomas E. Dewey, Jr.) retired last summer after 23 years on Berkeley’s Board of Trustees, on which she served as co-chair of the board and as chair of its development committee. She is a graduate of Vassar College and received her Ph.D. in Greek and Latin from Columbia University. A 40-year parishioner of St. James’ Church Madison Avenue, she has served on just about every parish board. Berkeley awarded her the degree of Doctor of Humane Letters, honoris causa, for “your lifetime of service to the Episcopal church, for your large and compassionate heart, for your generosity toward the institution and its students, for your commitment to those principles that are the School’s core values, and for your generosity in sharing them.”

R. William Franklin is Bishop of Western New York. A graduate of Northwestern University, he earned a Ph.D. in church history at Harvard. He then went on to professorships at Saint John’s University and at General Theological Seminary before coming to Berkeley as its first lay dean and president. Called to ordination, he served as a priest at Trinity Church Copley Square in Boston, the Anglican Centre in Rome, and St. Mark’s Church in Philadelphia. He has authored or co-authored nine books and many articles, and serves on the Board of Examining Chaplains and on the committee to nominate the next presiding bishop. Berkeley awarded its dean emeritus the degree of Doctor of Divinity, honoris causa, “for your lifetime of service to the Church, and as a teacher, and as a recognized leader within the Episcopate.”


Matriculation 2014

The Matriculation of Berkeley’s new students took place on Wednesday, October 15, at the Community Eucharist in Marquand Chapel. The 26 who matriculated include 21 M.Div. students (who are striving for the Diploma in Anglican Studies), 2 M.A.R. students (who will receive the Certificate in Anglican Studies), and three exchange students from Westcott House, Cambridge. The new class has an equal number of men and women, and their median age is 32. Andrew Moore ’15, right, preached.

In Illa Quae Ultra Sunt Berkeley’s 2014 Commencement

A

s always, the conferral of Berkeley diplomas and certificates and the awarding of prizes occurred in the context of Evensong. It fell this year on a beautiful May 17th. Fifteen graduates were awarded the Diploma in Anglican Studies, and another four the Certificate. Also in keeping with longstanding tradition, three Diplomas and four Certificates in Lutheran Studies were awarded as well. A further four students received Certificates in Educational Leadership and Ministry (two of them Berkeleyites). The Class of 2014 presented a new Berkeley banner in honor of the retiring dean as well as a very generous gift of $7,115 to B.D.S. Senior prize winners included Elizabeth Blunt who received the E. William Muehl Prize in Preaching; Stephen J. McCarthy who won the Thomas Phillips Prize for the study and practice of Anglican liturgy; Sarah 8 | Be r k e le y Div in i t y S c h o o l at YA L E

William Amon holding his late mother’s degree with Lucy LaRocca ’08 and Stephanie Johnson ’10.


Class of 2014 Graduates have assumed parochial positions in the following cities: Birmingham, AL Phoenix, AZ Los Angeles, CA San Francisco, CA Savannah, GA Indianapolis, IN Lafayette, LA Brookline, MA St. Mary’s City, MD Oklahoma City, OK Providence, RI Two more are working at church schools in Maryland, one is with the Mennonite Central Committee in Indonesia, and one is pursuing a Ph.D. at Yale.

Ginolfi who received the St. Luke’s Award for liturgical leadership; Timothy Kennedy who won the R. Lansing Hicks Prize for “doing the most to benefit the Berkeley community”; and Claire Dietrich Ranna was awarded the Bradford E. Abelson Prize for “the most outstanding qualities of judgment and character for the future exercise of ecclesiastical leadership.” Prizes for academic excellence were also awarded to Sarah Stewart ’15 and to Stephen Douglas ’16 and Robert Pennoyer ’16. At the YDS Commencement Exercises, Sarah Stewart ’15 won a Harriet Jackson Ely Prize for promise in theology, and Sarah and Yolanda Rolle ’15 were awarded Two Brothers Fellowships to pursue Biblical studies. The most poignant moment in the ceremonies came when 16-year-old William received the Certificate in Anglican Studies awarded posthumously to his mother, Catherine Amon, who died during the spring term of her senior year.
