The Common Good

Happy Birthday, Billy Graham

As a 30-something Christian in the U.S., I just want to wish Dr. Billy Graham a happy 90th birthday. I appreciate your humility and unwavering commitment to evangelism. Your marriage to Ruth was an example of grace and commitment. May God grant you strength, peace, and blessings.

In an age where there is so much to complain about, as well as the public scandals of ministers, I appreciate your public witness and personal integrity. Although I did not always agree with your stance on politics and public policy, I appreciate the integrity and forthrightness with which you shared. You are a beacon of Christian witness and have lived that way for so long. So in this, your ninth decade of life, may God bless you, the BGEA, and your family.
