WE’D LoVE To HEAR YoUR SToRY President of the Duke Chapel Advisory Board, Charlie Berardesco T ‘80


t is a pleasure to once again write to you as president of the Duke University Chapel advisory Board. Since my first letter, the Board had an exciting meeting at Duke with the staff and students — as an aside, i love the Board meetings, as it gives me a wonderful reason to return to campus and simply revel in the beauty of Duke and the area. But, we did conduct some important business, including reviewing progress against the Chapel’s newly adopted Strategic plan, receiving program updates, meeting new staff members, and thinking about the pending move of worship from the Chapel as needed repairs are performed. We also had the pleasure and the opportunity to listen to the new Chapel organist, Christopher “Kit” Jacobson, perform on both the aeolian and Flentrop organs, and to enjoy a performance by Duke’s first male a Capella singing group, the “pitchforks.” We had a great time! and, of course we finished the weekend off by attending worship in the Chapel, which for me, as i suspect for many of you, brings back marvelous memories of my time as a Duke undergraduate that i still tell as stories (i come from a family of storytellers). it is about stories that i want to write in this letter. in my first Chapel View letter, i recounted some of my story — some about my background, my time at Duke, and why the Chapel continues to be a special place for me. i know that many of you have your own stories, of specific experiences or events at the Chapel, or what the Chapel’s worship, music, preaching, community or architecture means to you, or how the Chapel enriched or changed your faith or life, or enhanced your understanding of how faith is part of your life. These stories are in some ways even more important now, as the Chapel staff is in the midst of the serious planning necessary to prepare for a year of not having access to the Chapel for worship. This planning goes well beyond simply planning for an alternate worship location, as complicated as that prospect is in and of itself. The staff will also have to inform many who have had dreams of a Duke Chapel wedding that their weddings cannot take place in the Chapel; they will need to comfort grieving families that 2

will not be able to hold services for their loved ones in that sacred space; they will have to explain to new and prospective students how Duke Chapel is such an integral part of the life of Duke University, without their being able to see the space for themselves. The loss of access to the Chapel for all of this will, to be honest, be painful, dislocating and disappointing for many of us. i have come to love returning to Duke and worshiping in the Chapel on a more regular basis — of sitting amongst the grandeur and beauty of that space, of listening to glorious music and inspired preaching, of worshipping amidst all who attend Duke Chapel. i don’t think it is inappropriate to be sad at the pending closure of the Chapel for worship, as temporary as that closure will be. While Duke Chapel is more than its physical presence for worship and other services and events, there is real significance to its physical presence, and that presence will be missed. and, i think that our stories about the Chapel and the influences

“Many of you have your own stories, of specific experiences or events at the Chapel, or what the Chapel’s worship, music, preaching, community or architecture means to you, or how the Chapel enriched or changed your faith or life, or enhanced your understanding of how faith is part of your life.”

it has had on our lives could be a wonderful way to keep our mind on what the entirety of the Chapel is truly about — not only its physical presence, but also its ongoing spiritual influence on our lives. To keep it, even as worship and other events are held in alternate spaces, an ongoing part of our spiritual lives. So, we want to hear your stories of how Duke Chapel has affected you. it could be one of the ways about which i wrote above, or in any way that you feel comfortable sharing. The Chapel staff will select some of the submissions for inclusion in future editions of Chapel View magazine, and for publication on the Chapel’s website. please submit your stories to chapeldevelopment @

i very much look forward to reading what we submit—from those of us for whom Duke Chapel is a special part of our lives. i know it will assist me in remembering how special the Chapel is, and help me look forward to that day, not too long in the future, when it will re-open and resume its comprehensive physical presence on the Duke campus. i also look forward to writing to you in future editions of Chapel View magazine, and hope that some of you will reach out to me with your questions, comments, and suggestions. and, as always, thank you for your support of Duke Chapel and its mission and ministries — it is vital to the Chapel and its work, and i know that everyone associated with the Chapel is grateful for your support.

Chapel VieW magazine | Winter 2014

Linda Gauger participated virtually in Duke Chapel worship services via webcasts for more than a decade. Then, last month she became a member of the Congregation at Duke Chapel and now attends services in person. “Going from watching online to in person was an easy transition,” Gauger said. Linda Gauger, left, with Chapel Congregation member “You could say all the Tamela Davis at a luncheon welcoming new members. prayers,” while watching Gauger watched Chapel worship services online for online, she said. Howev- more than ten years before attending in person. er, when participating in person, “there is something more when there are hundreds of people also saying prayers with you.” Gauger’s first connection to the Chapel was attending services while visiting her son Matthew Gauger, T ‘99 when he was a student at Duke. Matthew settled in Durham and was later joined in Durham by his sister Sarah Gauger. The two have participated in Chapel services in various ways. Linda Gauger first started watching the Chapel worship services online regularly in 2001 when she moved with her husband Gary from their longtime home in New England to Florida. The couple did not establish a connection there with a local church; instead, Gauger would visit her mother Elizabeth Reed at a nearby nursing home on Sunday mornings. “I would take my laptop down to the nursing facility and we would watch the Chapel service together,” she said. “My mother used to sing along sometimes.” “When you guys panned the audience, we would look for Matthew and Sarah,” Gauger said. “It was a way for my mother, and myself, to stay connected with our kids who were so far away from us.”

Last year, Gauger and her husband retired to Durham to be near their children and grandchildren. She continued her tradition of watching Chapel webcasts on Sunday morning with her homebound mother, who moved with the family to Durham. Congregation pastor Carol Gregg, member Jane Fellows, and Chapel Choir members would visit with Gauger and her mother in their home. “Duke Chapel was brought here to us and my mother was just absolutely thrilled,” Gauger said. Gauger’s mother died in July. “Carol was very supportive through my mother’s final weeks here,” Gauger said. After her mother’s death, Gauger began coming in person to Chapel services. “Obviously, it’s a lot better to be in person, to be in a community,” she said. “You get to participate, to truly take communion.” Even so, Gauger said she is grateful to have been able to share the Chapel webcasts with her mother for so many years. “When she couldn’t get out because she was infirmed, I could say, ‘Okay, we’re going to church together, and guess what, we’re going with family, because there’s family already going to this church.’” — James Todd, Multimedia Manager

From Virtual to in-person Worship


Whether or not you have visited Duke University Chapel recently, one cannot help but notice that sacred music resides in the heartbeat of Chapel life. The music offered at the Chapel helps us enter a realm beyond ordinary experience, surpassing known thoughts and undestandings. as musicians in Duke Chapel — an outward and visible symbol in stone and glass of the infinitude of God’s steadfast love — our purpose is to render through music, glimpses of God’s beauty and to open to all who come here the way of grace and peace. With its roots hearkening back to the prayer and wisdom of ancient monastic life, the sacred music that shapes the worship of Duke Chapel embodies the university’s motto, Eruditio et Religio, joining faith with learning. But for a moment i want to focus on the word “worship” as it gives sacred music its context. Nowadays it is easy to misinterpret worship, blithely referencing the trivial comings and goings of our daily lives. however, when it comes to the actual worship of Our lord, we’d be wise to take a closer look. i suppose “worship” today could generically be defined as an act of praise and thanksgiving offered to a higher spiritual power. Derived from the two Middle english words, weorð, meaning ‘worth,’ and scipe, meaning ‘ship,’ or a state of being, acknowledging the etymology of the word “worship” provides fresh understanding. 6

Chapel VieW magazine | Winter 2014

Soli Deo Gloria

“Distinct from the noisy world around us, sacred music, such as that of Johann Sebastian Bach and many others both before and after, anchors us in the Presence of the Living Christ.” Upon fusing the two, weorð-scipe, meaning ‘state of worthiness’, we arrive at a slightly thicker context of worship than a postmodern perspective might invite: a state of reverence and dignity, offering back to God his worthiness in adoration. For me, the sacred music of Johann Sebastian Bach has always provided a reliable signpost along the path leading to this context of worship. living in eighteenthcentury lutheran Germany, Bach had little choice but to write music to the Glory of God (Soli Deo Gloria). Yet more so than that of any other composer, Bach’s music, some of the finest ever composed, surprises, astonishes, and delights three hundred years later. it transcends faith, speaking to people of all faiths, and those with none. What is it about him? Why does his music do that — and how? how does it cut to the very fiber of our being and change us? John eliot Gardiner, a matchless Bach scholar and author of the recent biography “Music in the Castle of heaven,” jokes that experiencing Bach’s music is a little bit like snorkeling. “Being in Bach’s music has that sense of otherness: it’s another world we enter, as performers or listeners. You put your mask on, and you go down to a psychedelic world of myriad colors.” Gardiner also invites significant thought about Bach’s music as faith, because when we hear something so beautiful it’s hard not to wonder how a mere mortal could have created it. Though an agnostic, Gardiner admits feeling close to Christianity when performing Bach.

“it’s irresistible in its persuasiveness,” he confesses from a recent interview. “i cannot deny that even if my logical mind says ‘no,’ my soul and spirit says, ‘This can only have come from one who has a totally credible and unshakable sense of godhead and the frailty of human existence; [these are] the aspirations that are necessary to make sense of our lives…’” Much like the plays of William Shakespeare, the music of Bach represents the summit of human achievement, ushering us into a fourth dimension. it is the performer’s supreme challenge. it is the listener’s supreme delight. it is difficult to think of a more refined brain than albert einstein’s, and yet it was he who famously pronounced, “This is what i have to say about Bach — listen, play, love, revere — and keep your trap shut.” Distinct from the noisy world around us, sacred music, such as that of Johann Sebastian Bach and many others both before and after, anchors us in the presence of the living Christ. it primes our imagination for mysteries yet undisclosed. however darkly we see through the glass now (as Saint paul puts it), sacred music lets in the light: glimpses of God’s splendor in sound. it is my hope here at Duke that the choral and organ music offered amidst the beauty of Duke Chapel, might offer a glimpse of discoveries yet unnamed and realities yet unknown. — Christopher Jacobson, Chapel Organist Soli Deo Gloria

smile with the warmth of 10,000 suns greeted me as she opened the door with a hearty hello. i walked into the house and the comforting smells of noonday lunch filled the house. The sights of colorful vegetables and enticing vittles lurched forward, beckoning me to the dining table. Mrs. lucy lincoln had invited me to lunch. in this photo taken at the beginning of the academic year, Mrs. lincoln, the widow of Dr. C. eric lincoln, participated in the commissioning ceremony of my position. prior to the worship service i had the opportunity to sit with her in a conversation-style interview and to hear Mrs. lincoln speak of her late husband’s academic and creative exploits over the years. after our conversation, i truly realized what an honor it is to be the inaugural lincoln Minister for Duke Chapel. Mrs. lincoln fondly referred to her late husband as “C. eric” and she recalled him as a hymn-writer, a poet, a composer of a symphony, and even a screenwriter. in keeping with the Chapel’s values to see “the creative arts as both an expression of the worship of God and an expression of human longing for God,” the spirit of Dr. lincoln will be embodied through theology and the arts in the Chapel. While Dr. lincoln has a body of academic work that includes interfaith research and sociology about race relations in this country, his creative works outside of the academy are shining examples of his artistic theology on display. 8

Chapel VieW magazine | Winter 2014

Since the beginning of the academic year i have had the opportunity to meet with numerous students for one-on-one conversations over coffee or lunch. even as the semester moves forward, i am continuing to have dialogue with students from across the spectrum of Religious life about theology and the arts. The hope is that these “creative encounters” will fashion a safe space around visual, performance, and literary arts with students. Through pathWays, student engagement around theology and the arts allows me to form relationships with undergraduates at Duke. Dr. lincoln lost a half-century of personal notes in a house fire and went on to pen the book Coming Through the Fire as a testament to his journals dating back to 1941. his contributions are not only as a scholar, an artist, or even a trailblazer in his field, but as one who shows us the wisdom

of spiritual reflection. The crossroads of theology and the arts provides another avenue that can illuminate moments for students to reflect on their relationship with God’s creation — both human and divine. Two weeks after the sumptuous noonday lunch, during the commissioning ceremony, students and fellow staff members offered the laying-on of hands, and together we exited the building to partake in the late-august joy of locopops. in that service, not only did i receive the blessing of Mrs. lincoln to begin this new work in the spirit of her late husband, but i was received into a community willing to experience God differently. and for that, i am truly thankful. — Joshua Lazard, C. Eric Lincoln Minister for Student Engagement

Chapel Restoration Q&A The Chapel nave will close to the public on May 11, 2015, and reopen in the spring of 2016. Dean Powery believes that this time of restoration will be an opportunity for the Chapel community to be a “church without walls,” and live into the long-held belief that the Chapel is more than just a building. Q: Why can’t the Chapel stay open as the National Cathedral has during its restoration? A: Everything that can be removed from the Chapel nave must be removed (including the pews!). Mortar drilling and replacement will produce extremely fine dust that could damage the organs of the Chapel; therefore, the organs will be sealed. After the repairs, the entire nave will be thoroughly dusted before the interior furnishings can be cleaned and restored. Q: Where will Sunday worship services take place? A: Sunday worship services are tentatively set for Baldwin Auditorium during the summer and Page Auditorium in the fall. Christmas and Easter services may be moved to larger locations at Duke or in Durham. The Chapel website will contain location updates for worship. Q: Will the Chapel’s services, concerts, ministries, etc., continue during the restoration work? A: The Chapel’s mission and ministry will continue regardless of restoration work. The Chapel staff and Religious Life offices in the basement of the building will remain open during the restoration project. The Chapel website will contain location information for events. Q: Will events and services still be streamed online? A: Yes, online, radio, and campus cable broadcasts of events and worship services will continue.

“ The Chapel was just as much

a part of my pre-med education as my biology classes. Being a doctor is a practice of presence — it is through conversations in the Chapel community and my year as a PathWays Fellow that I am beginning to understand what it means to be present in the midst of suffering.
