Pics from Inaugural

Thanks to everyone who took time to attend the inaugural this morning. It was a big morning for me and I hope that most were able to stay awake for most of the event. Thanks to Mike Horton and Steve Baugh for participating and to Daph and Steve for taking time to help. Thanks also to the staff who work faithfully behind the scenes to make events like these possible.

  1. Congratulations, And i gotta say those unfits make me want to further my education so I can ware one. 😉

  2. Hey, I heard they the heirs of ‘Sister Aimee’ had left a sizeable amount of change to the seminary for the endowment of a chair in church history-I betcha Godfrey is going to use that for his chair! Oh, well-congrats anyway.

  3. I was bummed when I found out I was going to be out of town for your inauguration. Congratulations via this impersonal medium of cyberspace!


  4. Congratulations, Dr. Clark! I’m glad I could attend and observe your installation as Professor, and be challenged by your inaugural lecture to retain the law/gospel distinction. It was very interesting also to observe the formal aspects of the installation, with robes and a charge and such.

  5. Congratulations, Dr. Clark

    I just saw the pictures on Facebook and I want to include your wife in the circle, to be the husband of one woman for almost 27 years is an important qualification for a Christian leader as important as your inauguration that just took place.


  6. Congratulations, Dr. Clark. And thank you for your willingness to answer questions from us Reformed neophytes, no matter how idiotic. Speaking for a bunch of others, I appreciate your work.

  7. From Calgary|: I am totally delighted to read about your installation as Professor and offer my congratulations to you (and to Barb). What a memorable day!! Wish I could have been there in person. Will now have to wait till your address is posted. We appreciate honesty in tackling tough issues. Continue to stand firm.

  8. I too was interested to see the formal aspects of the event. Is there any way, Professor Clark, that the program or order of service for the installation might be available online so that we might have some further idea of what took place?

    And congratulations! I am greatly helped and encouraged by RCC and Heidelblog!
