A giant in the clinical pastoral training movement died April 4. Glenn Asquith was a prolific contributor to the literature of the Boisen movement. His anthology of writings by and about Anton T. Boisen, 
Vision from a Little Known Country, is the primary source by which the founder of the clinical pastoral movement is known to readers today. 

Glenn was the recipient of the 2015 Helen Flanders Dunbar Award on the occasion of the 25th Anniversary Plenary of CPSP in 2015. He was emeritus professor at the Moravian Theological Seminary where he developed and nurtured the pastoral counseling program and taught for 31 years.

Glenn was a good friend and colleague of CPSP through the years. We extend to his wife Connie, who joined us in Chicago two years ago, our heartfelt condolences. His passing is a loss to us all.
