Duke Divinity School will hold its 87th Opening Convocation Service, the first worship service of the 2013-14 academic year for students, faculty and staff.

The convocation service, which is highlighted by an academic procession of the faculty and selected senior administrative staff, also includes a blessing of new faculty and staff, and a welcoming to the entering class of students.

Dean Richard B. Hays will preach at the convocation service. His homily, "Now I Have Put My Words in Your Mouth,” will be based on Biblical scripture from Jeremiah 1:4-10.

The convocation can be watched on a live webcast. The webcast can also be accessed at this site.
