Peter Marshall

Recently we received an email telling of the death of Rev. Peter Marshall.

If that name sounds familiar to you, it should.

He was the son of Dr. Peter and Catherine Marshall.

Dr. Peter Marshall, was Senate Chaplain in Washington D.C.  from 1947 until his death at age 46.  He was also the inspiration for the movie, A Man Called Peter.
Catherine Marshall, is well known for writing several books including, Christy.

Rev. Marshall was quite a writer also, having written several books including “The Light and the Glory” and “From Sea to Shining Sea”.  Both of these are ‘must reads’ if you want to know more about the founding and the history of the United States.

Anyway, all that to say, the passing of Rev. Peter Marshall came as a surprise to me and to his family as it was unexpected according the comments on his Ministry’s  webpage. HERE’S THE LINK
