This is a touching remembrance of one of the founders of the Living Pulpit, who died at age 85. Bob was a true visionary and a consummate businessperson with a razor sharp mind, a true understanding of human nature, a gift for organization, and the ability to peer beyond the horizon to recognize trends and opportunities before others saw them. Bob did not do things by halves and so when he was building support for an innovative ecumenical preaching journal his enthusiasm was contagious and his personal commitment to the success of the project at hand was incontrovertible.
