Renfree, a renowned Canadian Baptist leader, Gordon Renfree has produced a delightful daily devotional reader for seniors. Like many of his readers, Gordon has fond memories of the faith and spirituality of his parents, often shared at mealtimes. He captured his own father’s deep piety, quick wit, and rich historical acumen as he reworked his father’s words into a yearlong devotional book. May we all glean from such faith and be encouraged for the journey that remains.”” –Terry G. Smith, Executive Director, Canadian Baptist Ministries Harry A. Renfree pastored churches in eastern and western Canada and served as executive minister for his denomination in those regions. In recognition of his accomplishments, he was awarded an honorary doctorate degree. He also earned his Doctor of Ministry degree from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky.
