Looking to Jesus

Yesterday the news came out that Billy Graham had died. I was talking to a friend (a trained historian) about Graham's impact on American Evangelicalism, and we agreed that in many ways Graham's shadow looms large over American Evangelicalism. However, unlike some leaders in the movement today, he never forgot his primary focus: to preach the Gospel.

Hope in the Darkness

There are days, weeks, and seasons in life where you are brought face-to-face with your own mortality. This happens when we wake up and there are new aches and pains. It happens when we watch a loved one struggle with a chronic illness, helping him/her perform ordinary everyday tasks. Or when a close friend or family member has an accident, and the person is left significantly changed (emotionally, physically, mentally). Or some dies either suddenly or slowly over months.
