One joy of Virginia Theological Seminary is that some of the most remarkable scholars make their way to the campus to progress a project and learn about the Episcopal Church. These guests really enhance our shared community life.
I am delighted today to welcome the Rev. Dr. Emma Percy to the campus. Emma served as the Chaplain to Trinity College Oxford from 2005 until last September. She has a significant publishing profile including What Clergy Do: Especially when it looks like nothing and Mothering as a metaphor for ministry. Her writing is fresh and compelling; she reads extensively and brings a fresh energy to her theology.
While at VTS, Emma will be preaching and offering a seminar on the topic of abortion. In addition, she will be visiting New York to talk about theology and persons who identify as non-binary.
She is serving as a Merrow Fellow here at Virginia Theological Seminary. This partnership with St. Mary’s brings some remarkable scholars to the campus. Emma is typical. So, a very warm welcome to Emma. We are delighted that you are here.
The Very Rev. Ian S. Markham, Ph.D.
Dean and President
