Rev. Dr. Richard S. Kirby (1949-2009)It is with profound sorrow that the World Network of Religious Futurists inform its membership that Dr. Richard S. Kirby, chaplain and former chairman of this network from 1993 to 2005, passed away September 24, 2009 in Edmonds, WA, at his home. He was only 60 years old, and died suddenly from what appears to have been a brain aneurysm. He was an inspiration to the religious futures movement. He is best known as the author of Temples of Tomorrow (1993) with the late Earl Brewer, and also The Leadership of Civilization Building (2002) with Richard J. Spady. In 2005 he became the first President and Chaplain of Kepler University, an astronomical and theological college. It is clear that all those within WNRF were so very much affected by his friendship and vision and worked on so many different projects to actualize these visions. Click here for details.
