It is with such sadness that I read of Graham's death. But what a good thing to celebrate his life! There has been no single person who has influenced every facet of my life more than Graham. Sitting in the dental amphitheater for Sabbath School week after week throughout the 70's opened my eyes and heart to a God who could really be trusted.
Week after week Graham dealt so graciously with the "heckler" in the class, modeling God's graciousness before our eyes. To say the least, I was impressed. Bible study became fun and with new focus as I looked for the picture of God in every verse. Surely Jesus will come personally to Graham in the kingdom and say those words he always longed to hear, "You said of me what was right." I hope I can be in the clapping and cheering section for Graham when that happens! May God continue to bless Pineknoll as you continue to share with the world his vision of a gracious and trustworthy God.
