Billy Graham's "Last Crusade" Calls for a Spiritual Awakening
As iconic evangelist (and Christianity Today founder) Billy Graham turned 95 last week, the venerable preacher drew national attention, a platform for what may be his final "sermon".
From CT's "Gleanings":
More than 28,000 churches have pledged their involvement in "My Hope America with Billy Graham," an event which pivots from the evangelist's famous stadium-filling events to living rooms nationwide.
Based on Matthew 9:9-10, "My Hope" encourages Christians to invite non-Christian friends into their homes to watch a TV program featuring Graham. The video will feature clips of past sermons as well as a new message Graham has prepared—possibly his last.
Graham hopes for a "spiritual awakening" for churches in America.
