1. hmmm, my first thought was that I wondered if you would interview the Grahams. I don’t know why, it just popped into my head. Wouldn’t you like to sit with the 91 year old Graham and ask some questions?

    • We think alike 🙂

      I did correspond with Rev. Graham.

      I’ve read Billy Graham and Franklin’s books, but I’d very much enjoy talking in person (on or off the record) about our shared experiences!!

  2. No interest in the film, given that Hollywood favors drama over truth (except when they do hagiographies).

    I’d read a book about him, if well written and believed by differing POVs to be unbiased–the guy had a fascinating life.

    • Yes, his life was indeed fascinating! I’d love to read a straight-up biography, but it seems almost impossible to find an objective storyteller. I’m wondering to what degree the movie producers — not from Hollywood, btw — fulfilled that expressed mission (er, pardon the pun).

  3. I might be…I actually heard BG speak when I was in college. He did one of his rallies here in Denver, at Mile High Stadium. I went every night and even took friends with me a couple of times. Mostly I liked his obvious concern for all people, his passion for his beliefs. Now, I don’t know if I’d go.

    I don’t know much about Franklin Graham, except for Samaritan’s Purse, which remains my charity of choice. When I have money (which isn’t often, sadly), that’s where the extras go.

    • I’ve been to several of Billy Graham’s Crusades, as you might imagine. I see them through different eyes, now that I’m an adult.

      Franklin Graham is an interesting minister in his own right. I was very intrigued by the approach he took in his memoir, which omitted most references to his siblings.

  4. I probably won’t see it. I really have no interest in organized religion but I can certainly understand why you’d see it, and why you’d love to have a sit-down talk with him.

  5. Psst…Melodye…if you want to participate in the liberals community you’ll have to join because posts are locked–hit the link at the top with “to join this community, click here”.

  6. Nope, I have no interest in any organized religion. I tend to go with Native American Spirituality, which leaves ones beliefs up to the individual.

    However, I can see why you’d want see it.
