Called! Memoirs of a Black Priest
The Reverend Dr. Richard Cornish Martin was ordained to the priesthood in 1962 and began his ministry as Episcopal Chaplain at Penn State. Recognized early on as a gifted and pioneering minister, leader, and healer, Father Martin was called to serve in increasingly prominent positions throughout the Episcopal church over the course of his life and career. He was both honored and humbled by each call, and sought guidance from God in response to every request and opportunity.
Upon learning from doctors that he was nearing the end of his life on Earth, Father Martin set about writing his memoirs with the realization that he would not live to see the published version. This is the story of an extraordinary man who devoted his life to serving the Lord and, in so doing, made lasting positive changes within the church and touched thousands of lives in the process
