Humans of HDS: 2017 Commencement

Cora McCold, MDiv ’17

"What we’re learning in ministry is how to be present with each other—how to be present in suffering ... That roots me back in myself—in my own strength and in my own gifts. I think that’s a huge benefit to what we’re doing at HDS."—graduating student Cora McCold, MDiv ’17
