The Passing of Rev. Billy Graham Marks the End of an Era in American Christianity

Just as many of you, I woke to the news that Rev. Billy Graham had passed away.  This is indeed as sad day in our history.  Rev. Graham has been known throughout the years a “America’s Pastor.”  Many individuals can trace their spiritual roots to the heartfelt plea of Rev. Graham to “Come to Jesus! Come to Jesus!”  I remember attending one of his crusades at the University of Tennessee football stadium when I was a young child with my family.  Many of us have been touched by his relentless pursuit to save the lost and his ministry.  My own ordination into the ministry is a short 5 steps away from Billy Graham himself as my former pastor laid hands on me, who’s pastor had laid hands on him, who’s pastor’s pastor was ordained by Billy Graham who laid hands on him. 

We truly have lost a spiritual giant of our faith.  As we mourn his passing, we also rejoice in the blessings of his life and that he is face to face with His Master.  Remember his family today and in the days ahead. Seek God in prayer today and ask God to raise up another to carry the mantle of Rev. Graham into this culture today!

May God Bless You,
Pastor Rodney
