Endowed faculty chair in Episcopal studies announced at Brite Divinity

Brite Divinity School at Texas Christian University and the Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth have announced the creation of the $2.5 million endowed Right Reverend Sam B. Hulsey Chair in Episcopal Studies.

The Rt. Reverend Hulsey served as bishop of the Diocese of Northwest Texas from 1980 until 1997.

Dr. Ed Waggoner is the first faculty member named to the chair; he is a graduate of Yale Divinity School (M.A.) and Yale University (Ph.D.) and is married to the Reverend Canon Janet Waggoner, canon to the ordinary in the Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth.

The full story can be found on the diocese website here.

I can only second this. Ed Waggoner is a great scholar and a dedicated teacher. I only wish the linked story had spoken as much about his qualities as it did about his wife’s. Best of luck, Ed.

I can’t find any comments in the linked article regarding Dr. Waggoner’s wife’s qualities. She gets exactly one sentence: “His wife, the Rev. Canon Janet Waggoner, is the canon to the ordinary in the Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth.”

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.
