I think this is the first time that it has happened. We have both the Virginia Theological Seminary Board of Trustees on the campus and, at the same time, the General Theological Seminary Board of Trustees. History is happening today.
Naturally, this has everything to do with the affiliation that the Board of Trustees voted. Instead of competition with General, we are now in the business of cooperation. Our task is to keep the Episcopal witness continuing in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan. The two Boards gather to finalize our relationship between the two institutions.
At 3pm, there will be a plenary session involving both Boards. Then both Boards will gather for Evening Prayer (do please join us). This will be an exciting and important day. And please give a warm welcome to all Trustees and especially to those coming from General Theological Seminary.
The Very Rev. Ian S. Markham, Ph.D.
Dean and President
