“[Gordon] and his wife, Mary, began to craft an unusual church structure: Members had to commit to an inward journey of daily quiet prayer, meditation and courses on Christianity as well as an outward journey of social justice work. People would be held accountable by working in small groups.” Washington Post
That was 60 years ago. Gordon Cosby, now 91, just gave his last sermon at Church of the Saviour, Washington DC. Although the future of the church is uncertain [the building is for sale] the impact of this ministry has been immeasurable. I visited this ministry in 1999 and heard Gordon preach a fantastic, heartfelt message on integrity and finances. It was in a coffee shop but there was no coffee, unfortunately. A bit mean not to serve coffee until afterwards, my gosh, i was staring at a cold coffee maker during the whole service . . . but it was a real privilege to be there and hear the one and only Gordon Cosby.
