2016-2017 Highlights

s chairman of the School’s Board of Trustees, it has been my privilege to give this address.* I am now in my 13th and final year as bishop, which means that you were leaving kindergarten when I addressed the Class of 2005. It also means, in a manner of speaking, that we are graduating together! You may have seen me on campus, but I am aware that to most of you, I am a stranger. So it is with care and humility that I address you. I want you to know a couple of things. I pray for this community daily. Earlier this year, your diplomas were brought to my office to sign. As I signed each one, I wondered about your story. I prayed that God would graciously care for you. I gave thanks for your learning and your teachers. I prayed that you may have a gentle and wonderful future. And tomorrow, I will be the first to shake your hand as a Bishop’s graduate. I see that as the Amen, the punctuation to my prayer for you. I am not alone in my hopes, dreams and prayers for you. Your parents and teachers certainly join in. I am sure their petitions are more frequent and fervent! It is with an elegant education and enveloped in prayer and affection that you are about to be released into a wider arena: college, gap years and more await you. The Bishop’s School aspires to bring forth your God-given gifts , whatever your calling might be. Here you go. Permit me to say a bit about where you are going. The community in the year 2017 is…curious. A glance at any news source will offer reasons for anxiety—even despair—as well as hope. I would suggest that our world is inherently paradoxical, in three ways. Our community is both diverse and divided: diversity is an inherent part of the ecosystem as well as the human race. We are diverse in language and race, but we also have come to understand how many ways we differ: race, sex, sexuality, disabled and less disabled, transgender, religion and politics to name a few. At Bishop’s you have explored the issues of diversity; you have come to know that diversity is a gift. We know better now the riches that we receive as we come to know and understand people different from ourselves. You have at times felt uncomfortable and challenged as you encountered the other, the stranger. You have grown. And you have also learned that there is a shadow side to diversity. Racism, sexism, homophobia—all sorts of

* These are excerpts from the homily given by The Right Reverend James Mathes at the Baccalaureate service for Bishop’s Class of 2017 on June 1. This is his final Bishop’s Baccalaureate service, as Bishop Mathes is leaving San Diego to become the associate dean of students at Virginia Theological Seminary.

scapegoating abound. We see it in ourselves and the world about us. A second paradox of the world in which we live is that it is both gifted and impoverished: as graduates of The Bishop’s School, you have a front-row seat to privilege. I say this knowing that some of you are less privileged than others. And yet, within a global context, merely by virtue of the diploma that you will receive, you are a gifted person of privilege, but we need not go far to see fellow brothers and sisters in utter poverty, either materially or of the soul. We have been given great gifts and resources in the midst of others who are in want. A final paradox: our time is hopeful and, at the same time, dangerous. This is a time of possibility. Miracles seem to abound. The human genome continues to be explored, resulting in potential life-saving and life-changing discoveries. Yet, we are also in a time where we continue to endanger the future of human life and “this fragile earth our island home” (Book of Common Prayer, p. 370). It is a wicked tension that the very industries and inquisitiveness that allow great advances may be at the same time risking our existence by changing the balance of our varied and interdependent ecosystems—yet another example of the richness and blessing of diversity. There is good news. And it is before me. You are the good news. You are going out to have a hand in this wonderful adventure of life. You will engage these paradoxes. You will face a divided nation and world with tools that see the stranger as someone to befriend, rather than to fear. We hear the chants: black lives matter, white lives matter, blue lives matter. Because of your Bishop’s education, you are aware of a different hue on the color spectrum: gray. You do not settle for black-and-white. You know truth matters. Complexity matters. Simple solutions will not do. You can and must hold opposites in tension. I pray that you cling to not just what you have learned, but how you learn, by deep questioning, discourse and exploration. This is the gift of your time in this community. You will recognize that it is essential to connect science and industry with ethics and morality. Because of the literature you have read, the art you have made, you have depth of your human soul as an essential tool in your toolbox. You have studied history and know that we are a product of our past, but not bound to the mistakes of those who preceded us. You bring what you have learned here to a larger stage, and you will make a difference. You might wonder why I have this confidence in you. I believe in you because you are a child of God. You are created in the image of God and have inestimable value. I also have learned about this class from your head of school and chaplain. They describe you as leaders, steadfast, responsible, a class without a lot of drama, one with a great deal of gratitude, wonderfully supportive of each other, with a strong sense of camaraderie. I have been addressing Bishop’s classes since you were in kindergarten. I assure you that not every class is described this way! As I listened to those who know you well, I thought: The Bishop’s School is going to miss the Class of 2017. You have made your mark here. It is for this reason that I believe in you. We believe in you. Because of this School’s roots and identity as an Episcopal school, our readings come from scripture. I would like to bring to a close my reflections in Paul’s words to the church in Philippi. I will let him give you your final Bishop’s instructions:

Finally, beloved, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is pleasing, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. Keep on doing the things that you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, and the God of peace will be with you. Whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just…That sounds right up your alley, Class of 2017. Keep on doing the things you have learned and received. And the God of peace will be with you. 2

Seniors wore their academic gowns for the first time at the Baccalaureate Service held on June 1 at St. James by-the-Sea Episcopal Church.

Prior to awarding the diplomas, Head of School Aimeclaire Roche presented the perpetual awards. The Robert Wolterstorff Community Service Award (est. 1994) was given to Julienne Jeong. This award recognizes the community service efforts of Bishop’s students and is a tribute to the first bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of San Diego, The Rt. Rev. Robert M. Wolterstorff. The Harvard Cup (est. 1953), given to the senior with the highest grade point average, was presented to Ryan Feng.
