Virginia Theological Seminary’s Center for Anglican Communion Studies is guided by three imperatives, Resource. Reconcile. Reflect. We seek to be a resource to the seminary, the Church, and the Communion, and to provide a space for reconciliation and theological reflection though intercultural and interfaith work. To advance our work on the “three R’s” we appoint Fellows with gifts to enrich our formation.
The current CACS Fellows are:
Dr. Najah Nadi Ahmad, Fellow in Peace and Reconciliation. Dr. Ahmad is the Aziz Foundation Lecturer in Islamic Studies at the Cambridge Muslim College, UK
The Rev. Prebendary Rose Hudson-Wilkin, Fellow in Public Theology. Prebendary Hudson-Wilkin is the 79th Chaplain to the Speaker of the House of Commons in the UK Parliament. A priest ordained in the Church of England she is a chaplain to Her Majesty the Queen.
Dr. Lucinda Allen Mosher, Fellow in World Anglicanism. Dr. Mosher is a moral theologian with expertise and experience in inter-religious dialogue. She is Assistant Academic Director of the Building Bridges Seminar (an international Christian-Muslim dialog initiated by the Archbishop of Canterbury in 2002) and Faculty Associate in Interfaith Studies at Hartford Seminary (CT).
All three of these fellows will be visiting VTS this week, September 24-29. The Fellows will also be contributing papers to a Public Theology Seminar with VTS faculty on Friday and Saturday, Sept. 28 and 29.
It is an honor to have Dr. Ahmad, Prebendary Hudson-Wilkin, and Dr. Mosher as part of our VTS community this week and I do hope you have a chance to meet them.
