We are in the middle of a very significant year: September 20, 2015 was the beginning of the 40th year of theological education at UTS. I hope that you will join with me this anniversary year by contributing to the Annual Fund and the 40/40 Campaign.

Donors make bequests to make a difference after they are gone. Mary Goodman, a New Haven laundress who bequeathed her life savings (nearly $5,000) to Yale Divinity School to provide scholarships for African Americans, was especially successful in this regard: her bequest supported the school’s first black students, and continues to support students today, nearly 144 years later.

Renowned journalist and author George Will speaks before an audience at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, on the role of religion in U.S. politics.

The Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist speaks at the university’s Graham Chapel, giving the keynote address on religious beliefs of some of America’s founders and presidents.

In a speech titled “Religion and Politics in the First Modern Nation,” Will's remarks ranged from the preamble to the Declaration of Independence to the government as an evolving principle. He continues to argue that government should grant leaders the required powers they need to properly benefit the changing nation. Introductory remarks were made by former Senator (R-MO) and U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. John Danforth.
