    He was a great teacher. His Bible History class at Emerson College was one of the best classes I took at Emerson. Thank you for posting this wonderful remembrance PDF file online. It sure brings back great memories.

    Dear Charles — Thanks much for your comment and appreciative words. I knew Rev. Coffee well through his involvement as an advisor to Liberal Religious Youth (LRY). This was in my adolescent years. Rev. Coffee was a major influence on me and many others. We were out of touch for a large part of my adulthood (though I remembered him fondly), but fortunately, I looked him up and we had contact several times in the early 2000’s. He told me how much he loved teaching at Emerson. You could see that he found a place to hang his hat. This is not to say that he hadn’t been successful before, as a minister in Roxbury and as a youth advisor. Great to hear from you.
