I always loved Bishop Gilbert Patterson's preaching. Not just because of his power and passion, but because it reminded me so much of the style of preaching that I grew up listening to in my grandfather's church when I was a boy.
Patterson was a great leader and visionary in the Church of God in Christ. But whether you were a member of that denomination or not, his name was legendary, he was an outstanding church and civic leader and his presence is greatly missed.
Be blessed by him this morning!
