We were honored to have as our guest preacher Dr. Teresa Sullivan, the president of the University. She eloquently implored us to create a caring community, and she talked candidly about the challenges facing the University of Virginia community in the aftermath of the killing of undergraduate Yeardley Love last spring.
We will post her sermon later this week when we get a copy.
President Sullivan also took questions at forum following the 10 am service. She was asked a variety of questions ranging from how to dampen student drinking to the morale of staff members at the University. She also mentioned that St. Paul's is a "beacon of hope" to the community and world at large.
