Samford University's Beeson Divinity School celebrates its 25th anniversary with a special service.

Rev. Richard Bewes, former pastor of All Souls Church in London, England, delivered a sermon in Andrew Gerow Hodges Chapel.

A longtime friend of Beeson founding dean Dr. Timothy George, Bewes was appointed by the Crown as rector of the Anglican Evangelical All Souls Church in 1983.  He retired from its leadership in 2004. During his tenure, the church developed to embrace some 70 nationalities in its membership and welcome 2,500 worshippers each Sunday.
