Wesley Commencement Day 2019 Moments: Our Commencement speaker, the Rev. Dr. Jane Leach, is a faculty member of Jesus College, University of Cambridge, Emgland, as well as Principal of the Cambridge – based Wesley House, the house of studies for Wesley’s Doctor of Ministry Cambridge Track.
In her address, Dr. Leach challenged graduates to consider the responsibility of theological knowledge and the challenge of that privilege - and asked if we
will use that privilege to be gatekeepers that separate or a gate like Jesus, that is open. Do we dare to be “people who choose to put ourselves on the line, to be a bridge between faith and not-faith, privilege and no privilege.” ? She encouraged our graduates to “live for something larger than themselves... to lead with vulnerability.”
