Bill Moyers Address

Every now and then a day comes along that reminds me why I am in Divinity School. Last Tuesday was one of those days. Our guest speaker in Divinity School Chapel was Bill Moyers. Most of you are probably familiar with Bill Moyers. Bill Moyers, is a broadcast journalist, former public official and Baptist minister. During his career in broadcast journalism, Moyers has won more than 30 Emmys, two Golden Baton awards and nine Peabody awards.

As chapel began, I was sitting there thinking how lucky I was to be sitting in a room with Bill Leonard, James Dunn, Bill Moyers, and Brent Walker from the Baptist Joint Committee. We are a small Divinity School, there are only 101 of us, but I can't imagine a much better educational experience.

The address Moyers gave was amazing. Below you will find a link where you can listen to his address. The republicans among you may not like some of the things he has to say, but you should still listen. Remeber, Jesus transcends political parties, so give him a chance.
