“Teach us, Oh Lord, the disciplines of patience, for to wait is often harder than to work.”  

~ Peter Marshall

Peter Marshall was born in Coatbridge, Scotland in 1902.  As a young boy, he felt called to ministry and immigrated to the United States when he was just 24.  He was self-educated and went on to graduate Columbia Theological Seminary in 1931 and was eventually appointed to the Chaplaincy of the U.S. Senate.  Marshall passed away of a heart attack at just 46 years of age.  His widow, Catherine, wrote his biography entitled “A Man Called Peter”, which was made into a film adaptation in 1955.  The film was nominated for an Academy Award for its cinematography.
