2. Live extravagantly for Christ: Dr. Spinney's 2022 Baccalaureate Address

Spinney, Live Extravagantly

In the 2022 Baccalaureate Address by Dr. Rob Spinney, he challenges listeners to waste their lives on loving Jesus, just as when Mary poured out expensive perfume to anoint Jesus. 

He challenges the Class of 2022—and the rest of us at Patrick Henry College—to live extravagantly for Christ.
