The in st louis professor kip welcome hello professor let me start with you where do we begin unpacking the legacy of billy graham i think probably the best way to understand his influence in the 20th century was as the evangelical ambassador um some people referred to him as the protestant pope uh but he wasn't ambassador in the fence that he could reach out to conservative protestants with his old fashioned old time he gospel message but could also reach out to lip more liberal christians and even catholics which was unheard of in those days um in from the protestant world um in terms of sort of bringing them into sort of social issues in reaching out around issues like um race or uh you know just just trying to preach a message of love to talk about how billy graham is being remembered in these hours after his passing in north carolina he passed away at his home in north caroline a right that's correct in monte and again he was ninety nine he has not been in great health for a number of years but still and he's an icon he's an icon in america but certainly in north carolina perhaps the most influential north carolinian that there has ever been and this will be a m a major event here at remembering him the funeral the memorial service i would expect its early but i would expect that if it worked with his schedule the president will be here and probably some other living presidents because as you noted in as we've heard him on public radio throughout the morning this was america's pastor he met with every president from truman to obama twelve consecutive presidents both parties and often had the ear of of the commander in chief jimmy carter was one of those presidents he spoke at the dedication of the billy graham library back in two thousand seven here is part of what president carter had to say they've on invite him he wants to be on fox television.
