William Sloane Coffin, Jr.

With the passing of the Rev. William Sloane
Coffin, Jr. we have lost a consummate communicator of Christian faith and a
conscience for the nation.
(Revised April 23, 2006)

Thanks to Tim at a believer’s blog for linking to these comments by Rev. William Sloane Coffin, Jr. last year when he was honored at Yale Divinity School. His remarks, as always, are worth noting.

With the passing of the Rev. William Sloane Coffin, Jr. we have lost a consummate communicator of Christian principles and a conscience for all humankind. He called us to be better than we thought we could be. He made us think we could achieve that higher state, and he did it with grace and compassion. May his voice continue to call us to justice, peace and inclusion.
