The presiding Bishop of the Church of God in Christ died on March 20, 2007. You can find information on his wikipedia entry. Here is a slideshow if a few pictures. Here is a myspace page that someone has put up in his honor.
Here is Bishop Patterson preaching about the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. I look forward to the day when there are no more goodbyes and death is a thing of the past. All of that is possible because Christ lives.
My prayers are with the family and friends of Bishop Patterson as well as the whole Church of God in Christ family.
