General Seminary Trustees Affirm The Way of Wisdom, Elect Chair

At its regular February 6, 2015 meeting, the Board of Trustees of The General Theological Seminary of The Episcopal Church affirmed the Seminary’s Way of Wisdom and Wisdom Year as a creative and effective response to the needs of the 21st century Episcopal Church. It also discussed how to advance the core programming to effectively implement the Wisdom curriculum and formation. At the next regular meeting in May, the Board has expanded its meeting time to continue working to develop The Way of Wisdom.
