Duke Divinity School will celebrate its 87th Baccalaureate service with J. Warren Smith, associate professor of historical theology at the Divinity School, preaching. This 90-minute service of worship includes the traditional ritual of hooding for degree recipients and is open to the public.

Smith was selected by Divinity School Dean Richard B. Hays to preach after graduating students made nominations. His sermon will be based on the Old Testament text from 2 Samuel 6:1-12 and the New Testament text from 1 John 4:1-12.

The Baccalaureate service will be webcast live on the Duke Chapel webcast page and on Duke's Ustream.

Duke Divinity graduating students should meet before the Baccalaureate service in Goodson Chapel at 5:30 p.m.
