Hopeful days for Liberian Baptists

Posted by: Bill Webb in Untagged  on

I read with interest the account of the installation of Mercer University Professor Richard Wilson as the sixth president of Liberia Baptist Theological Seminary a couple of weeks ago.

It was a relatively quiet place until almost 35 years ago when a coup d’état launched a bitter and bloody civil war. The past 10 years have been marked by what some observers call a “tenuous peace.”

Each year as Thanksgiving approaches my family is reminded of the death of Dad. It is hard to believe that it has been 25 years since Robert Que Webb, a lifetime resident of my hometown of Mt. Vernon, Ill., died on Nov. 8, 1988. Dad’s unusual middle name was derived from a physician after whom he was named.
