Billy Graham's daughter will be keeper of the flame

Evangelist Billy Graham to lie in honor at US Capitol

The funeral March 2 will cap nine days of mourning for postwar America's most famous evangelist, who died Wednesday at his home in North Carolina's mountains at age 99. It was a pattern that continued in the John F. Kennedy years. Who can forget his private conversations with Richard Nixon in the Oval Office or his prayers at presidential inaugurations?

Graham's efforts on race did make some difference, especially in the South, where his theological approach could reach audiences that activists could not, according to Miller, one biographer.

"They knew exactly what he was going to say, but there was always a real excitement and expectation as he proclaimed the gospel message". Do you feel like the power he had as a man of God, as a preacher, as a minister, is being taken away or that it's not being recognized?

Was Billy Graham flawless? "I really had a deep affection for him, I felt like that I knew him, but there were things that apparently I didn't know", he said.

Last July I visited Israel and followed in Christ's footsteps with a Bible in my hand to his pre-ordained sacrificial destiny in Jerusalem. Ford told Graham he had not yet made up his mind.

The Rotunda has always been considered the most suitable place for the nation to pay final tribute to its most eminent citizens. Jimmy Carter met him in the 1950s while working with Graham's organization to promote integration in Georgia. I like to think that God has invented a better avenue than a "line". When the tapes were released in 2002, Graham apologized and said his words then "do not reflect my views".




Bush added that Graham was a mentor to several of his children, including former President George W. Bush. "Even though he had done so much, Billy had humility and I admire him for this".

"Since Rev. Graham touched so many lives in a positive way, we wanted our community to have a way to stop and pay their respects", stated Mark Aaroen of Tetrick Funeral & Cremation Services. At the time, I had only been a Christian for a year or two, and I was deeply influenced by how he lived out his faith and "walked the talk". "He's in heaven and I rejoice over that and all of that, but we miss him here", said Tchividjian.

My response to her was that "Just as God raised him up for this season to share the hope of Jesus to our world, He will raise up others to share that same hope".

Upon further review, I realized that these people were slandering the message of God Almighty, not Billy Graham.

He lived a celebrity's life and yet he lived a humble life.

Franklin Graham said his father had been in fairly good health until his 95th birthday. So I was surprised when Daddy Bill opened his door wearing his pajamas and invited us in. Instead, Trump maintained a White House connection to the Graham family through Franklin Graham, who read a passage from the New Testament at Trump's inauguration and has attended at least one White House event during his administration.
