Fans will get a glimpse of what’s to come in the forthcoming tour on live television this Sunday, February 24th at 5 PST.In addition to Queen and Adam Lambert, the Oscars will feature performances from Jennifer Hudson, Gillian Welch, David Rawlings, Bradley Cooper, Lady Gaga, and Bette Midler–all of whom are nominated in the best original song category.

(HDS was established in 1816 as the first nonsectarian theological institution in the United States.)On Thursday afternoon the solemn tradition unfolded for the 198th time. Under a white tent behind Andover Hall, members of the School gathered to welcome a new academic year and to explore a sometimes overlooked yet vital part of the HDS experience: devotion.Houghton Professor of the Practice of Ministry Studies Stephanie Paulsell delivered the ceremony’s keynote address, “Devotion in the Study of Religion.” She joked with the crowd that while some would immediately connect with her topic, others would likely complain, “devotion is not what I signed up for when I decided to come to Harvard.”But Paulsell offered her listeners a nuanced approach to the subject, by way of two vastly different texts: The Bible’s “Song of Songs,” and an excerpt from Virginia Woolf’s “To the Lighthouse.”Many consider the biblical poem — a dialogue between two lovers seeking to express in words their devotion to each other — “an oddity,” said Paulsell. But for her, the work, an excerpt from which was read early in the service, “is a fathomless pool of meaning.”“The unknowableness, born of devotion, seems at the heart of what this poem is trying to say. … [And] that unknowable more, that is at the heart of romantic love, is also at the heart of the study of religion,” she added.The best scholarship, ministry, and art are “marked by the unknowable more,” said Paulsell, a desire to delve the “limits of our knowing.”HDS Convocation August 29, 2013 The Harvard Divinity School Convocation featured a welcome from Dean David N. Hempton and an address by Houghton Professor of the Practice of Ministry Studies Stephanie Paulsell.Woolf (1882-1941) deftly tapped those depths of devotion. The writer’s life, said Paulsell, was committed to exploring the “infinite possibilities furled in human beings and in human experience.”In Woolf’s modernist and most autobiographical novel “To the Lighthouse,” the artist Lily Briscoe struggles to capture the image of a woman on canvas. “Fifty pairs of eyes were not enough to get round that one woman with,” read Paulsell from Woolf’s narrative.“The unknowable more is Woolf’s great subject,” Paulsell added, “and her central artistic preoccupation. She sought new literary forms, which reflected what she called ‘the populist, undifferentiated chaos of life.’”A common feeling in “Songs,” Woolf’s novels, and “hopefully your work and mine,” Paulsell told her listeners, is a devotion that cherishes and responds to the “unknowable more” of human experience with a sense of creativity, new perspectives, and new light.Dean David N. Hempton opened the service with his trademark wit. “Welcome everyone on this beautiful, beautiful Irish day; soft rain, gray skies, the coolest day since July 20. This is perfection.”With is closing remarks he thanked Paulsell for her inspiring address, for “the breadth of its embrace and the depth of its moral vision, as we have to face both our histories and our own times.”

The home has a walk-in 200-bottle wine cellar, a soundproof home theatre, a kitchen with scullery, a full suite of Miele appliances including integrated fridge freezers, imported New York marble and a state-of-the-art therapeutic Magnesium Magna pool.Every one of the five bedrooms is kingsize and the master suite was designed to be “akin to a six star hotel”.It has a huge triple car garage, five bathrooms and sits on a 608 sqm block.Agents Vaughan Keenan and Cobey Parnell of Grace and Keenan Newstead were stoked that the home resonated nationally. The home theatre is sound proof.“I think it’s a two-fold thing, the presentation of the house and the renovation is amazing. I think the owner has delivered a home that is very much on trend with what people are looking for these days. Pretty always sells well,” Mr Keenan told The Courier-Mail.“We’ve had over 37 groups through in the last five days. There has been three offers so far. We’re still working on them now. We haven’t put a price on it yet. All the interest has come in above mid-$1m, so we’re getting up to where we thought we’d be.” There’s even a fenced off grassy spot for kids to play.The home is being marketed as being “in a hidden pocket of Nundah Heights that almost never transacts” with “some of Brisbane’s most beautiful character homes”.“It’s definitely the new Hendra, that border of Nundah/Wavell Heights has got that height and consistency that you see around Clayfield but not the price tag.”.
