Doctor of Divinity awarded to
Last night, December 6, at the University of Divinity's Adelaide Graduation night at the Glynde Lutheran Church, I was awarded the University's highest academic award.
The citation opened by praising my "sustained and distinguished contribution to theological scholarship over the last fifty years through original musical composition that advances the celebration of Christian, communal life and identity."
While feeling a little overwhelmed by the grandeur of the event & the impressive outfit provided for me to wear, I was very pleased to receive the award, as it recognises the importance of the music of Christian communities. The award is not just for me but for the many writers & musicians who have contributed so much over many years.
