This is news?? What else was he supposed to do? Ignore it? Next year, if he is still alive, he will have another one. We will call it The Second Birthday Since His Wife Died.

He was, without a doubt, an outstanding example of what a religious leader could be. There was something about him that came through as he spoke that was totally believable. He didn't have to shout, pound the pulpit, or put on a show in order to get his message across.

He could also speak without the fancy-smancy gilded chairs and ornate settings that so many of our current "evangelists" seem to favor.

He is one of the few evangelists that I actually respect. And, those fancy chairs that Padgett mentioned? They always remind me of thrones. Wishful thinking on somebody's part...?
