Abstract

Bishop Edgar Amos Love (1891-1974), a graduate of Howard University and Howard Divinity School in Washington, D.C., was a co-founder of the Omega Psi Phi fraternity as a student in 1911. He became a Methodist minister and was later the Bishop of the Central Conference, based in Baltimore, Maryland, from 1952-1964. In this sermon, delivered April 12, 1962, Bishop Love exhorts the ITC students in attendance to choose difficult, transformative challenges rather than an easy life of conformity. He illustrates his theme using a passage from the Biblical book of Joshua (chapter 14). He particularly focuses on the Biblical figure of Caleb as an exemplar of the theme. He also briefly discusses his own challenge of serving as a chaplain in the United States Army in World War I.
