Donald Hugh Bessell

Giving thanks for the life of Donald Hugh Bessell

By Peter Patterson

Hugh Bessell, as he was known at Wycliffe, proved to be a wonderful addition to the Board of Directors when he joined in November 2000.

Besides his considerable financial qualifications and experience, Hugh brought wisdom, good judgement, and a strong commitment to his faith. He participated willingly at any Board event at the College, and carefully scheduled his own travels to not interfere with his attendance at Board meetings each month.

Wycliffe Faculty Sermons

Faculty Sermons on Exodus - Winter 2017

This Winter term the faculty preached on portions of the Book of Exodus. It is a form of liturgical preaching. Portions of the book were selected to reflect the two seasons of the church year we will be in this academic term, Epiphany and Lent. Thus, during the season of Epiphany faculty preached on portions of Exodus having to do with ways God was manifest to Israel. During Lent faculty preached on portions of the book which follow Israel in the wilderness.

Songs of Scripture - Faculty Preaching Series - Fall 2016

Songs of Scripture - Faculty Sermons - Fall 2016

On Thursday mornings at Wycliffe it is customary for the faculty to preach in a series that goes through the term.  Sometimes we preach on a given book of Scripture, like Jeremiah;  sometimes it is on some key aspect of the Christian life, like vocation.  This term, we will be preaching  on the biblical “canticles”, that is, on those parts of Scripture we know to be songs: the Song of Moses at the Red Sea in Exodus 15,  the so-called  “Magnificat” or Song of Mary from Luke, and so on.
