Wycliffe College Professors at home - Glen Taylor, Peter Robinson, Ephraim Radner, and Marion Taylor

A Steady Reflection of Our Commitments to One Another in Christ

By Alex Newman

On Friday, March 13, 2020 when Wycliffe announced the closure of the College, professors found themselves pivoting quickly to adapt to university life in the time of COVID-19.

While shifting courses midway through the term created a huge amount of work for faculty, “rather than complain, faculty did everything possible to make sure that our students are able to complete their terms,” says academic dean Peter Robinson, who is also professor of Proclamation, Worship and Ministry.

Bob Haslam

Remembering Bob Haslam

Bob Haslam was an important figure in the life of the College in the late 1990s. This was a period of significant change at Wycliffe, as the Board had recently been restructured from a body that numbered up to 50 to a much smaller group of 18 Trustees. It was also when the College was looking for new leadership, following the resignation of Principal Michael Poutney in 1998.

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.
