2018 is upon us. The second decade of the 21st century is nearly over. This is going to be an exciting and interesting year. The building blocks of a capital campaign are being put in place; the curriculum review is underway; our worship life is continuing to develop; three major multi-million dollar grants are going to be implemented; Center of Anglican Communion Studies continues to mark its 20th year; and all the regular work of the seminary continues in the library, Butterfly House, Facilities, AASL, DMin, Communications, Life Long Learning, LTE, CLM, CMT, Hospitality, CACS, Church and Community Engagement, Field Education, Human Resources, Catering, Cleaning, Housekeeping, and so the list goes on. Together we advance the mission of the Seminary.
This start to the new year includes the funeral of Murray Newman. Today we will celebrate a distinguished professor who served this seminary for decades in the past. Our past created our present. Our strength is due to those whose seved in the past. Our duty is to make sure that we leave a seminary strong for the future. As Murray Newman did in the past, may we do the future. This is our goal for 2018.
The Very Rev. Ian S. Markham, Ph.D. Dean and President
