The Massachusetts Bible Society congratulates Mr. George E. Oliver on winning the 2012 Donald A. Wells Preaching Prize!
The Donald A. Wells Preaching Prize was established by the Massachusetts Bible Society in 2007 to honor Executive Director Emeritus Donald A. Wells and his commitment to social justice. The prize is awarded each year to a student from one of the member schools of the Boston Theological Institute for a sermon based on a biblical text that raises an issue of social justice in the contemporary world.
The Preaching Prize winner, chosen by a sub-committee of individuals picked by the Massachusetts Bible Society's board of trustees, receives a certificate and a check for $1,000.
We invite you to view the video of "Heeding the Cloud", George Oliver's outstanding sermon given in Brooklyn following the State of New York's 2011 approval of it's bill in favor of marriage equality.
