Woody Allen Interviews Billy Graham

While reading about the movie Billy: The Early Years of Billy Graham which was just released over the weekend, I came across a reference to this interview done by Woody Allen on his show back in the 60’s.

It’s fascinating how folks back then could be so civil and witty even as they make clear from the very start that they’re on opposite sides of the fence. That’s the way conversations should go.

Part 1 of the interview is here:

Good exchange between two people who respect each other.

Change of Address…Where Do We Go From Here?

Successive deaths of international figures in the past week remind us of  the brevity and uncertainty of life.

Thursday last week, January 17, chess genius, icon and iconoclast Bobby Fischer died from an unspecified illness in a hospital in Reykjavic, Iceland. He was 64.

Tuesday this week, international marathon runner Wesly Ngetich of Kenya was killed by an arrow. News reports say it was accidental—Ngetich was caught in a deadly crossfire between two ethnic groups. He was 34. (Another Olympic runner from Kenya, Lucas Sang, was earlier hacked to death because of election violence in that country. Mr. Sang was killed on New Year’s Eve.)

Also on Tuesday, actor Heath Ledger was found dead in his Manhattan apartment, cause of death still officially undetermined. He was 28.

Where do they go from here?

When our time comes, where do we go from here?

One man who’s certain about where he’s going, when his time comes, is Billy Graham. In one interview, he said:

One of these days you’re going to hear the news
that I have died. Don’t you believe it. I will only
have had a change of address.

He’s sure where he’s going. What about us: where do we go from here?

What do you think? Where do you think you’re going?

Stop the Presses!

Hold it! I’ve just been reminded that today, Nov. 7, a great man of God celebrates his 89th birthday.
