    The brand new looking VTS Journal 2018-2019 is now available. With a superb drone view of the campus on the cover, the Journal captures all the key moments of the academic year. This is where certain lectures and key sermons are captured. It is an impressive list - Senator George Mitchell, Most Rev. Suheil Dawani, the Rev. Canon Kelly Brown Douglas, Bishop Carlye Hughes, the Rev. Fleming Rutledge, and Bishop Sean Rowe. We also capture some contributions by our own - Dr. Lisa Kimball's "The Gospel of Formation", the Rev. Dr. Judy Fentress-William's MLK Commemoration Lecture, the Rev. Dr. Bob Prichard's Quiet Day Meditations, and the Rev. Dr. Barney Hawkins' Bowers Lecture on "Preaching as Pastoral Presence". These are texts which are worth revisiting and rereading. These are texts that need to be captured for the record.

    The editors worked together to produce this important volume. Dorothy Pearson and Curtis Prather did the hard work. The result is a polished, impressive, well-organized and elegant book. On behalf of the Seminary community, thank you for your hard work.

    Anyone can order a copy of the Journal from Amazon. But for any member of the community, you can go to the Communications Department and pick up a free copy. This arrangement means that national distribution is made possible by Amazon, while the community can just collect a copy if they wish. This is a good and efficient system. This will be the first of many issues.

    The Very Rev. Ian S. Markham, Ph.D.
    Dean and President
