Ruth Graham, RIP

Story here.

Note how she remained a staunch Presbyterian (Presbyterians are always "staunch" somehow -- the way Catholics get described as "devout.") and did not undergo baptism by immersion.

North Carolina public tv documentary here.

Not a Granny D -- a different kind of older woman. She was a devoted partner and witness.

May she rest in peace and rise in glory.

Ed, I hate to disturb this solemn moment, but you staunch? Puhleeze.

For Ruth Graham,

May angels surround her, and saints welcome her in peace. Into your hands, O Lord, we commend our sister.

Ed said...

Well, I sure as hell ain't devout! (Beggin' yer pardon, Miz Ruth). How about the classic "staunchly uncommitted"?

I love the story of an interview with Franklin Graham in which he was asked who was the greatest preacher in the world, to which he replied, "my mother." May light perpetual shine upon her
