On Friday of last week, my wife and I responded eagerly to an invitation from the Duke Divinity Administration to attend an official 50th Reunion of the Class of 1968. The whole day was a time of emotional remembrance and gratitude for the extraordinary achievements of a school of distinction. We were warmly greeted by Dean Greg Jones, an old friend whose father had served in this position in a previous generation. Even though I had returned to the Duke campus upon many occasions for continuing education and enjoyment of the arts, this event was unique, for my emotions were tapped in ways I did not anticipate.
