I knew him as Pastor Shaver @ St. Philip's Lutheran Church jn Ypsilanti, Michigan. He was the best! We taught the Adult Sunday School there--alternating Sundays. I loved him like no other. He made the Bible a living book & I'm going to always be grateful to him for that. RIP, my friend!

I was saddened to read of Bishop Shavers passing. He was a big part of my childhood spiritually, emotionally and being such good friends with my father, they played a lot of racquetball together. My condolences, thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

Bishop Shaver was a dear friend, mentor and spiritual guide. I will miss our long discussions about the Bible and faith. From you I learned to reach out to the least, the last, the lost and the lonely.
