Remembering Peter Gomes

The Rev. Dr. Peter Gomes passed away today. He was an amazing Baptist preacher and Harvard professor. My claim to fame is that I learned preaching from a man who learned from the great Dr. Gomes. If you have not read The Good Book, I would encourage you to do so. Dr. Gomes gave us new ways to look at the Bible and new ways to look at God’s people.  The world has been blessed by his presence in it. As my friend, Rev. Nancy Benson-Nicole put it, “I know that when we was welcomed into God’s mansion, he was ready to sign the guest book.”

Here is a link to an interview he did with Fresh Air not too long ago.
