While we are encouraged by recent developments, please know that the issues regarding reinstatement of the GTS8 have not yet been fully resolved. (The recent story headline you may have seen on Episcopal Cafe is premature.)
Last evening we communicated our good faith response to the Board’s invitation of reinstatement. We are eager to return to our positions as full members of the faculty. But we must first work for clarity about the details of our reinstatement. We are especially concerned about insuring a safe seminary environment for all.
We remain hopeful about our continued negotiations with the Board of Trustees.
And we look forward to celebrating with our students and friends once these critical details are finalized, contracts are signed, and we can carry out the mission of GTS together.
