Remembering The Rev. Dr. Robert “Bob” George, Jr.

The Institute for Worship Studies is sad to announce and mourn the passing of alumnus Bob George, a member of the Theta class who graduated in 2007.

Bob was a dedicated student and generous supporter of IWS. He graced IWS with the gift of a chalice and paten set that he crafted. 

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy, he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil, or fade—kept in heaven for you…(I Pet. 1:3-4).

    Enjoy your rest in peace in the Everlasting Arms of the one who made you and loves you so dearly, Bob. I will miss our online interactions and will always cherish your friendship and our koinonia fellowship. I will always remember you to all who compliment me when I wear my “The truly educated never graduate” tee-shirt that you gave me the week before your IWS graduation. It is an cherished
    artifact of our friendship and is a treasure to me. Shalom shalom – until you rise in joy and we meet again~
