Farewell, Gordon Cosby

N. Gordon Cosby,  prophetic voice for church renewal and founding minister of The Church of the Saviour in 1947,  died on Wednesday,  March 20,  at the age of 95.

Gordon and his wife Mary founded the Church of the Saviour in Adams Morgan in 1947. That movement now includes Christ House, Jubilee Jobs, The Potters House, and a wide variety of  other loving ministries in Washington, DC. In 1994, the Church of the Saviour-at-worship became a "scattered community," which now includes nine church congregations throughout the city.
