David Hurd leaves GTS

David Hurd leaves GTS

The General Theological Seminary has announced that David Hurd will leave his position at the end of this month, the latest of a number of staff changes since last fall.

An Evensong to celebrate Professor Hurd’s 39 years at the seminary is planned for November 4th.

Regarding Hurd’s departure, Dean Dunkle says, “David Hurd’s influence on generations of church leaders is legion and for that General Seminary gives thanks. As his student a dozen years ago, he had a significant impact on me as a priest, as I know he has impacted hundreds of others in our church. I will miss him and bless him in his next undertaking.”

How convenient that this should happen after the end of the academic year, and just as everyone’s eyes are turned toward General Convention. No one left to cry out.

“And what does the Lord require of you, but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?”

No justice here, and no kindness; and surely no walking humbly with God.

Just secrecy, disingenuousness, arrogance and betrayal.

Just emptiness and sadness.

What’s happened to GTS: “and every stone shall cry”. 🙁

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
