If I Were Giving a Commencement Address

Sunday, May 26: If I Were Giving a Commencement Address – The Rev. Brian Mason
It’s graduation season and that means graduates will be offered commencement speeches by wise or brave or otherwise famous people. There are well known addresses, such as Oprah’s to Harvard and Churchill’s to Harrow. But let’s face it, they’re just another formality in the way of real fun: post-graduation revelry. They’re dull because they’re predictable, saying such things as, “seize the day,” “never give up,” “don’t let haters get you down,” or “life is only what you make it.” This morning we’ll enjoy a commencement address without the usual clichés. Wisdom not guaranteed.
