Sent Forth to the Place from Where You Came
Speaker(s):  Everett Tilson
Date of Recording:  May 13, 1988

Description:   This is the last sermon preached by Professor Everett Tilson before his retirement. He preached this at the 1988 senior eucharist and baccalaureate. It deals with clergy appointment, call, and election. He calls for new pastors to choose the scriptures they want to preach and to be willing to cross boundaries in their own ministries. He says the seminary used to be mostly male and Methodist, but it has crossed boundaries in the makeup of the student body and the faculty, and yet they still have a long way to go to be more inclusive. The scripture preceding this sermon was Isaiah 10:24-27, and Luke 4:16-30.
