The Historic Bicentenary booklet has run into a problem. The printer is waiting on a supply of paper, and as a result, publication is delayed. However, when it becomes available, you will be able to learn about all the exciting ways we are “marking the moment” of our Historic Bicentenary.
Part of “marking the moment” for us is embarking on a tour that touches twenty-four key places in the United States. It is a gratitude tour. We are connecting with those who have made this place strong. We are inviting them to learn about the changes to the Seminary. And we are inviting them to visit the newly renovated campus.
Last week, we visited Easton. The diocese of Easton is one of our founding dioceses – we are determined to hold events in all seven of our founding dioceses. It was lovely to reconnect with our retired Board Chair, Bishop Bud Shand, and his wife Lynne. We owe him a special debt of gratitude. The strength of the Seminary is made possible by countless friends: last night we expressed our gratitude to some of our friends in Easton.
The Very Rev. Ian S. Markham, Ph.D.
