I was sad to see the news this morning that Billy Graham has died:
What are your memories of Billy Graham? I remember serving at the 1994 Atlanta Crusade. It was so exhausting that I fell asleep during one of the musical concerts!
From Christianity Today’s coverage of that Crusade:
Graham challenged Atlantans to continue worshiping and praying together - regardless of skin color - in order to transform the city.
“We’ve seen racial barriers broken down this week and expressions of love that have caused tears to roll down our cheeks,” Graham said in his closing sermon. “We call it the ‘spirit of Atlanta,’ when black and white will live together in peace.”
I imagine that many of us were impacted by Billy Graham’s ministry… look forward to hearing of any other stories about him!
Here’s a great quote from him:
Someday you will read or hear that Billy Graham is dead. Don’t you believe a word of it. I shall be more alive than I am now. I will just have changed my address. I will have gone into the presence of God.
Christianity Today has a special edition dedicated to remembering him:
