Happy 90th, Billy

by quaesitor

Today is Billy Graham’s 90th Birthday. What an extraordinary life he has lived. The man is a legend in his own lifetime.

I’ve actually started working on writing a fully illustrated history of All Souls, both as a guide for visitors to the building and also as an outreach tool. So I’ve been having fun trawling through the archives and have dug up a few interesting pictures. Here is one of the great man preaching at All Souls in the 70s:

    i recently came across a talk Billy Graham presented in 1998 at a TED conference — a “meeting of minds” of scientists, engineers, some of the world’s greatest thinkers — where he spoke on technology, faith, and suffering. i was deeply impressed by his humble, compassionate communication to this group of people who are often be stereotyped as anti-Christian. He connected with them quite wonderfully and relevantly. See the talk at http://www.ted.com/index.php/talks/billy_graham_on_technology_faith_and_suffering.html
