Dr. A. Louis Patterson Jr. was remembered and celebrated for his long and fruitful life at a homegoing service at the Mount Corinth Missionary Baptist Church in Houston, Texas, today. Preachers from across the country gathered to commemorate Dr. Patterson and his service to the body of Christ.
BCNN1 streamed the homegoing service live on BCNN3.TV via FaithVideoOnDemand.com.
Dr. Ralph Douglas West preached the eulogy.
After hearing some of the greatest preachers in America, the thing that impressed us the most here at BCNN1 was hearing the son of Dr. Patterson, Alan Lamar Patterson, who handled the end of the service with remarkable wisdom, humility, maturity, grace, and class. We believe that, with God’s blessings, Alan Patterson is in a position to do at Mount Corinth what Joel Osteen did with Lakewood after his father died, and even greater, of course, with a more Gospel-centric and Baptistic flavor.
