The Dean’s Letter
The Training of Healers in the Transformative Therapeia of God
ALMIGHTY God, who called Luke the Physician, whose praise is in the Gospel, to be an Evangelist, and Physician of the soul: May it please thee, that, by the wholesome medicines of the doctrine delivered by him, all the diseases of our souls may be healed; through the merits of thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

e acquired the patronage of St. Luke here at Berkeley Divinity School by a somewhat strange means. The Gospel of Luke has various associations that could inspire theological education: the Gospel’s emphasis on God’s action in history, and on the poor and marginalized, not least. St. Luke is even, according to some accounts, patron of students; but no, that wasn’t it; he is also patron of artists, and of butchers—and of course of physicians. The first St. Luke’s Chapel, at the former campus in Middletown, was the gift of Mary Alsop Mütter in memory of her late husband, the physician Thomas Dent Mütter. Mütter— subject of the 2014 NYT bestseller Dr Mütter’s Marvels by Cristin O’Keefe Aptowicz—is buried in Middletown, but his name is probably better remembered in Philadelphia, where the Mütter Museum of the College of Physicians is named for a man who was one of the leading figures in medicine in the nineteenth century. Mütter died in 1859, at the age of 48; shortly after, his grieving widow, whose family were from Middletown, gave the Chapel to the fledgling seminary, its dedication to Luke a reflection of her departed husband’s achievement and of his faith. As founding Dean and Bishop of Connecticut John Williams put it in his sermon at the dedication of the chapel in 1861, “He [Mütter] was a ‘beloved physician,’ ministering not to the body only, but to the spirit also. And so, from the ‘beloved physician’ of the Scriptures, this chapel takes its name: and…because, here, they are to be trained, whose duty it will be to minister ‘the wholesome medicines of the doctrines’ by which ‘the diseases of our souls may be healed’”—quoting the Collect for St. Luke as it appeared in the then Prayer Book of 1789. Mütter was a pioneer of plastic surgery; not cosmetic surgery but the restoration of mobility and functionality to people who whether congenitally or as often by horrific accidents such as industrial burns were not only disfigured but impeded from mobility and other basic functions. He not only developed and practiced new techniques of surgery but advocated for the equally
2 | Be r k e le y Divin i t y S c h o o l at YA L E
novel and controversial practices of anesthesia and antiseptics. Some of Mütter’s contemporaries and colleagues were opposed to anesthetic in particular because they believed “pain [was] a desirable, salutary, and conservative manifestation of life force.” (Aptowicz, 193). As a practitioner of surgery that improved quality of life and as an advocate of humane and wholesome practices, Mütter was a “beloved physician” worthy of commemoration. The idea of the Gospel as medicine, and of ministry as healing, is as old as the Gospel itself. While sickness and injury have cross-cultural force, Mütter’s challenges help us to understand how much more powerful and confronting it might have been once, and might yet be, to describe the Gospel as therapy—as a source of healing. Healing is rarely painless. Sociologists Christian Smith and Melinda Lundquist Denton in their 2005 study Soul Searching described the religion of American youth as “moralistic therapeutic deism.” In this worldview there is a God somewhere (that’s why it’s described as deist), who wants us to be nice— that’s the moralistic part—and who can give us help we need, and in their words “provide therapeutic benefits to [the] adherent.” It’s too easy to use this kind of analysis as part of some narrative of decline from a supposed pristine past, when everyone believed the way they were supposed to—“Let’s make the Gospel great again,” I hear you say. It was 80 years ago however when our late colleague here at Yale Richard Niebuhr performed a similar diagnosis when he famously spoke of belief in “a God without wrath [who] brought [people] without sin into a kingdom without judgment through the ministrations of a Christ without a cross” (Kingdom of God in America, 193). The issue is not about youth—it is about faith. Smith and Denton have, however, like many of us, already handed the word “therapy” over to the enemy in trying to describe a problem. To quote them again: God is, in the worldview of moralistic therapeutic deism, “something like a combination Divine Butler and Cosmic
Therapist: he’s always on call, takes care of any problems that arise, professionally helps his people to feel better about themselves, and does not become too personally involved in the process” (165). In fact, Therapeia, the word in Luke’s Gospel describing the healing for which people come to Jesus, is not merely the work of the butler and the “therapist” in Smith and Denton’s modern sense, but the costly service of transformation. The work of a theological school is
arguably two-fold; it is to train healers, but also to be a place of healing. Origen of Alexandria described Jesus as the “chief physician” who called as pupils those who were “to be physicians of the soul in his Church” (Exp. on Ps. 37). At Berkeley, we are committed to the training of such spiritual physicians: not the therapist of popular imagination, nor the reckless barber surgeon of the pre-modern era, but to the training of those who will, with the Chief Physician as guide, offer their skills to lead
communities of healing and wholeness to their own healing. Those physicians can only do that work of true therapeia however as knowing themselves healed, or being healed. The therapeia of God is true, transformative, continuous, and not without pain, and goes on in this place in the service of the Holy Trinity, and under the patronage of St. Luke. Yours faithfully,

The Rev. Tony Jarvis, The Rt. Rev. George R. Sumner, and E. Bruce Garner.
Three Honored at Convocation At the October Convocation, Berkeley recognized three servants of the Church with honorary degrees: E. Bruce Garner is a lifelong Episcopalian who, as a layman, has contributed richly to the life of the church in, around, and beyond his native Atlanta, Georgia. His faith, along with that of many of his contemporaries, was tested in the early days of the AIDS crisis when he not only buried friends but walked through the valley of the shadow of death himself and learned along the way to fear no evil. He has pursued numerous ministries related to AIDS/HIV. Since its earliest embattled days he has served Integrity and is

now its president. He is head verger of All Saints’ Atlanta and he has been a significant voice on the Episcopal Church’s Executive Council. Berkeley honored him “for your lifelong witness as a follower of Jesus Christ, for your contributions to the LGBTQ communities of church and state, and for your encouragement of respect for your own human dignity and for all those who have found themselves on the margins of their societies…” F. Washington “Tony” Jarvis served as a parish priest in youth ministry in Cleveland. For 30 years he was headmaster of The Roxbury Latin School in Boston. He “retired” from the school at 65 to become
a chaplain and master at Eton College in England and scholar in residence at schools in South Africa and Australia. In 2008 he came to Berkeley to create the pioneering ELM (Educational Leadership and Ministry) Program, which prepares Yale students to minister in schools and colleges. He is the author of six books and numerous articles in the fields of education, history, and religion. Tony “tended to the formation of students’ intellectual, personal, and spiritual lives through both [his] teaching and example,” and Berkeley desired to recognize “all [he has] done for Berkeley, the Church, and the countless students around the world whose lives [he has] touched.”
George R. Sumner is a graduate of Harvard and Berkeley (1981). Earning a Ph.D. from Yale, he undertook the first extended study of the theology of religions of the German theologian Wolfhart Pannenberg, exploring the relationship of Christian theology to other religious traditions with the salvific finality of Jesus Christ as starting point. His other academic accomplishments include his 2004 book The First and the Last: The Claim of Jesus Christ and the Claims of Other Religions as well as his recent commentary on the Book of Daniel. Ordained a priest in Western Massachusetts, he has worked as a missionary in east Africa and as vicar on a Native American reservation. Until recently he was Principal and Helliwell Professor of World Mission at Wycliffe College in Toronto. In 2015 he was elected Bishop of Dallas where he is chief pastor to 31,000 souls. Berkeley recognized and honored both his â€œscholarly and pastoral achievements.â€? Faculty and Trustees gathered with honorands at the Fall Convocation.

Berkeley’s Randy Hollerith National Cathedral’s New Dean
ast fall we celebrated the election of Berkeley graduate Michael Curry (M.Div. ’78 and D.D. ’01) as Presiding Bishop. This fall we rejoice in the appointment of Randolph Marshall Hollerith (M.Div. ’90) as Dean of the Cathedral Church of Saint Peter and Saint Paul in the City and Diocese of Washington. Randy, as he is widely known, is the eleventh dean of the National Cathedral. He has just turned 53 and is celebrating his 25th anniversary as a priest. He is no stranger to the Cathedral. He grew up in nearby Alexandria, Virginia, and attended St. Stephen’s and St. Agnes School there. (In 2014 he won the school’s Distinguished Alumni Service Award.) His great grandmother was present when President Theodore Roosevelt helped lay the Cathedral’s foundation stone in 1907, and she was present at the first worship service held there in 1912. Randy recounts that one of his first spiritual experiences was, as a boy, witnessing the Cathedral’s stone masons at work as this “House of Prayer for All People” was rising on Mount Saint Alban. Randy came to the Berkeley Divinity School after graduating from Denison

University. “Berkeley was the place that formed me for ministry,” he claims. “It was also the place where I met the love of my life. My academic experience there surpassed all my expectations. Having such a vibrant community of Episcopalians in the midst of the denominational diversity of Yale was a great blessing. I felt like I got the best of both worlds—the chance to learn from some of the best minds in the
Randy earned a national reputation for innovation in institution building, team leadership and justice ministry in the city and beyond. faith and the mentoring I needed in order to serve as a priest in the church.” He married “the love of [his] life,” Melissa Kaye Zuber, on New Year’s Eve in 1988 while they were both still at Berkeley. She has been a priest since 1992 and has served as chaplain and religion department head at St. Christopher’s School in
Richmond since 2003. Both she and the dean share a deep commitment to Episcopal schools and look forward to involvement with the renowned schools on the Cathedral close. Another Berkeley association is that with Randy’s brother Herman “Holly” Hollerith IV (M.Div. ’81, D.D. ’10), Bishop of Southern Virginia. After ordination, Randy served as assistant at St. Stephen’s Parish in Richmond (1990-95), and then as rector of St. Peter’s in Savannah (1995-2000). He comes to the Cathedral having been rector of St. James’ Parish in Richmond for 16 years. As rector, he doubled the annual budget and enhanced the largest mission program of outreach ministries of any parish in the Diocese of Virginia. Mariann Edgar Budde, Bishop of Washington, writes that, in Richmond, Randy “earned a national reputation for innovation in institution building, team leadership and justice ministry in the city and beyond. Those who know him best universally describe him as faithful, energetic, humble and strong. Randy is described as a ‘team builder at heart.’ Randy shares our commitment to social justice and community engagement. He has led St. James’ in the work of racial reconciliation, forging lasting ties in the Richmond community. [He] has a pastor’s heart that is, in his words, ‘centered on being faithful to Christ and Christ’s work in the world.’” Washington Cathedral’s financial needs are daunting, and fundraising will have to be an important component of Randy’s deanship. The Cathedral has an endowment of $70 million and has recently completed $10.5 million in repairs following the devastating 2011 earthquake. But, on top of its $14 million annual budget, it must raise
an additional $22 million to finish the building’s restoration. Bishop Budde comments: Randy “has a record of successful fundraising campaigns that will serve us well.” The Cathedral welcomes some 400,000 visitors each year. The new dean embraces the tension of the Cathedral as both “a place that is radically open and hospitable” while at the same time a place that is “deeply faithful to the Gospel.” David J. Kautter, former chair of the Cathedral Chapter, notes that “Randy brings with him a depth of experience and intention of uniting the Episcopal community and welcoming people of all faiths and beliefs.” Randy himself points out that “The Cathedral is not only a space of immense beauty and grandeur, but plays an important role in proclaiming the reconciling love of Christ within this city and around this country. The Cathedral is a holy place that calls our city, our country and people of faith to work for justice, peace and compassion. I am honored to be called to serve as dean of the Cathedral and thrilled to be part of this beloved national institution.”

Jere Wells Welcomed as ELM Director
erkeley is delighted to welcome Jere Wells as the new ELM Program Director. This is the ninth year that Berkeley has sponsored the Educational Leadership and Ministry Program for all Yale students interested in exploring ministry in schools or colleges. Jere has recently retired after a career in independent schools, a career that ranges from Woodberry Forest School in Virginia to The Westminster Schools in Atlanta, his alma mater. At Westminster Jere served in a wide variety of educational and administrative roles, from Director of Studies to Admissions Director to, since 2002, Assistant Headmaster. He has been extensively involved in the Episcopal Church in Georgia and in the greater Anglican Communion. He and his wife Della Wager Wells, a middler at Berkeley, have two adult children. When asked “How in the world did you get here?” Jere responded as follows:
8 | Be r k e le y Div in i t y S c h o o l at YA L E
I suppose the most evident steps were those first taken by Della to take divinity school classes and eventually apply to the Berkeley program at Yale. She was in school here when I first met ELM’s founding director Tony Jarvis and Dean Andrew McGowan. I have known many YDS graduates, including two priests at our parish in Atlanta, and I have long admired the reputation of YDS, and Berkeley in particular, as the epitome of intellectual and theological formation. However, I had never been here until the summer of 2015, and in many ways it was love at first sight. The Sterling Divinity Quadrangle’s evocation of Thomas Jefferson’s “academical village” at UVA certainly warmed my Southern heart. But it was the way that YDS and Berkeley integrate spiritual formation with other disciplines such as ELM’s focus on education or ISM’s training in the arts that really spoke to me. As an English literature teacher for forty years, I have long valued and taught the essentially interconnected nature of knowledge. Shakespeare does not make complete sense without an understanding of contemporary English politics, particularly the religious politics of his day. Similarly, optimal education of young people should include attention to their spiritual and ethical formation, a basic tenet of the ELM program. So when Tony Jarvis and Andrew McGowan described this program to me, it made all the sense in the world. I want not only ordination-track students to take these classes, but also a far wider range of potential educators who will support and influence the next generations of our country’s leaders. My professional and personal history also seems to have been preparing the providential path to this place. I come from a long line of educators, including religious educators. One grandfather was the school superintendent in Atlanta’s largest county; the other had been a college president and a minister. I attended one of the finest independent schools in the
South, The Westminster Schools, which as a non-denominational Christian school has had a long history of working hard to define what high quality education means in the modern era, including the role of religious education and a communal life built on Christian heritage and values. I worked closely with the school’s chaplains on programming and directed the Glenn Institute for Philanthropy and Service Learning, which, while not exclusively Christian, has its values rooted in the culminating charge of the Parable of the Good Samaritan, “Go, and do likewise” (Luke 10:37). I also have found my way into educational programs and organizations that promote professional development, from the Klingenstein M.A. program at Columbia’s Teachers College to the Secondary School Admission Test Board, which provides professional development programs for admissions officers, to the INDEX consortium in Boston, which provides benchmarking data and professional growth opportunities for school leaders. I am grateful that this opportunity came along when it did. Our two children are grown and establishing their own professional lives, Judson in NYC and Aubrey in Atlanta. Della, after a thirty-year legal career, is able to pursue exciting new opportunities. Background, formation, values, and opportunity all aligning, the divine push feels compelling. But where do we go from here? ELM has been created and sustained by Tony Jarvis’ vision, but as a long-time school headmaster, he is keenly aware of the need for programs to grow and adapt to emerging needs and opportunities. Along with the dynamic leadership team at Berkeley, Dean McGowan and I will be looking at ways to broaden the scope of what ELM can offer and whom it can benefit. Its place in the world of theological education is unique; its potential for improving American education is unlimited.

hen asked about what she enjoys most about teaching homiletics, newly appointed Assistant Professor Donyelle McCray’s reply was quick and confident: “I love helping people come to voice” and “I love seeing people experiment and try new things.” It was this topic of “voice” that originally led her into the study of homiletics and that fuels her current research and defines her classroom pedagogy. Prof. McCray is a graduate of Spelman College and the Harvard Law School. An Episcopalian, she went on to earn an M.Div. at Virginia Theological Seminary, after which she took a job as an interfaith hospice chaplain. While working as a chaplain, she found herself attending a lot of funerals and her curiosity about funeral sermons was piqued. She wondered what made one funeral sermon resonate and why another fell flat. This line of inquiry led her into the study of homiletics at Duke University’s Institute of Care at the End of Life. Once at Duke, she discovered that her driving questions were in the broader topic of Christian consolation: “What is the Christian hope in the face of death and how do we articulate that to people credibly?” This led her to study Julian of Norwich, described by McCray as “an excellent consoler who knows how to face the end of life.” Her study of Julian has provided the foundation for her current interests, which center on the spirituality of risk taking. Her work on Julian was critical because she was such a daring figure. McCray received her Doctor of Theology degree from Duke Divinity School in 2014; her dissertation was entitled “The Censored Pulpit: Julian of Norwich as Preacher.” Her exploration of Julian led her to think about preaching as a form of risk taking, something she is cognizant of in the classroom with her students and something that informs her current research on Pauli Mur-
ray, civil rights activist and first female African American Episcopal priest. She is also working on a spiritual biography of theologian Howard Thurman. This biography is part of a larger project at the University of Virginia that explores what it means—for a variety of notable twentieth century people—to be a witness to one’s faith. Prof. McCray’s commitment to creating a welcoming classroom that embraces all voices is grounded in her belief that “preaching is a community endeavor.” Her
pedagogy reflects a commitment to variety of approaches so that students have a sense of personal agency and their voices are brought fully and uniquely to the act of preaching. She describes herself as nondirective in the classroom, which challenges students to discover their own voice rather than mimic a particular technique or approach espoused by the professor. She seeks to expose students to a wide variety of styles and approaches to preaching in order to demonstrate the range of what is possible in the diverse contexts in which her students’ future ministries will take place. From this process of exposure and discovery, Prof. McCray hopes that her students will begin to develop their own authentic, individual voice, which will be the basis of their authority. Understanding one’s authority as a preacher has implications for sermon form as well as message. She hopes to open students up to new ways in which they can meet and serve a community best. —Holly Christine Clark ’18

he Berkeley Class of 2016 received their diplomas and certificates at the Commencement Evensong on May 21, the Saturday of Yale’s Commencement weekend. Berkeley Board Chair David R. Wilson and Dean McGowan awarded eight men and eight women the Diploma in Anglican Studies, and an additional student received the Certificate. A further eight students were granted Certificates in Educational Leadership and Ministry. The Certificates in Lutheran Studies, granted by Berkeley, were presented to five students in a separate ceremony at nearby Bethesda Lutheran Church. Dean McGowan presented the prizes. Stephen Douglas received the E. William Muehl Prize in Preaching; Zach Nyein won the Thomas Phillips Prize for the study and practice of Anglican liturgy; Jessie Gutgsell received the St. Luke’s Award for liturgical leadership; Leigh Kern won the R. Lansing Hicks Prize for “doing the most to benefit the Berkeley community.” YDS Dean Gregory Sterling awarded Robert Pennoyer the Bradford E. Abel-
10 | Be r k e le y Div i n i t y S c h o o l at YA L E
son 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 middlers Nathan Bourne and Mark Schultz and to Greg Johnston ’18. At the YDS Commencement Exercises, Jessie Gutgsell won the Oliver Ellsworth Daggett Scholarship Prize “for ability, diligence, Christian character, and promise of usefulness as a preacher.” And the Institute of Sacred Music awarded Stephen Douglas the Edwin Stanley Seder Prize and Robert Pennoyer the Aidan J. Kavanagh Achievement Prize. At the reception at the Berkeley Center following Evensong, Robbie Pennoyer announced that the Class of 2016 was presenting a class gift of $5,115. The Class is also commissioning an artist to create a new Berkeley processional cross. These gifts are especially notable since the class is among the smaller at Berkeley in recent years (the two that succeed it are nearly twice the size).
Nathan Bourne ’17
athan Bourne is on his way to complete the requirements for the Master of Divinity degree and the Diploma in Anglican Studies. For the past two and a half years, he has been a caring and insightful member of the Berkeley and Yale communities. Whether he is reciting Russian poetry, sharing freshly baked bread, or biking around the Elm City, Nathan has brought his whole self to the common life of this seminary. Nathan’s first sense of a call came in his home parish in Hayesville, North Carolina, where the deacon led a weekly Bible study for teenage boys. After high school, Nathan ventured off to the mountains of Tennessee, intending to major in philosophy at the University of the South. His academic achievements there earned him membership in Sewanee’s renowned honor society, and Nathan ended up majoring in not one but three subjects: Russian literature, philosophy, and environmental science. In addition to his studies, Nathan explored the thousands of acres of forest surrounding Sewanee, finding in them glimpses of God. Between his sophomore and junior years at Sewanee, Nathan spent the summer in and around St. Petersburg, Russia. Half his time was spent studying the Russian language, and the other half, Nathan volunteered at a preschool and an orphanage and pre-school for children affected
by HIV and AIDS. Following graduation, Nathan went back to teach for a year in the Republic of Georgia. His fellow students have happily listened to his stories of hiking in the Caucasus region, traveling across borders, and receiving abundant hospitality from total strangers. Upon returning to the States, Nathan worked with the Office for Environmental Stewardship and Sustainability at Sewanee. He helped write a sustainability master plan for the university. Even more interesting, perhaps, was his work with

the university’s Herbarium. He joined in conducting a floristic inventory of the campus, collecting and cataloguing plant species, and working to quantify the different habitat types. Nathan sustained this work with prayer, going three days a week to St. Mary’s Convent where he prayed the Daily Office with the sisters. And, following the completion of the sustainability project, he put that environmental knowledge to a different use as a farm intern at the convent.
Rhythms of prayer, immersion in nature, and radical hospitality have shaped Nathan’s practice of stewardship in the church during his time at Berkeley. After living with non-divinity school students his first year, Nathan became one of the five Berkeley house residents, preparing morning coffee, making space for prayer and community, and cooking exotic foods for the weekly dinners that follow the Community Eucharist. On top of these involvements, he has managed to win prizes for academic excellence and preaching. During the summer after Nathan’s first year, he and a fellow classmate ventured out to Tacoma, Washington, where they completed CPE. The intensity of the clinical setting juxtaposed with the beauty of the Pacific Northwest broadened his knowledge of and appreciation for the healing and sustaining power of nature. In his internship, Nathan shared his gifts with the people of St. James’ Church in West Hartford, and learned from their noteworthy charism of hospitality. He worships regularly in New Hampshire with the Church of the Woods, investigating new ways to bring together his passions for prayer, community, and God’s creation. He looks forward to continuing this work of integrating sustainability, radical hospitality, and communal prayer after his ordination in the Diocese of Western North Carolina in 2017. His faithfulness and abundant compassion have already left their mark on the Berkeley community. —Gregory Stark
