Who will fill his shoes?

A quiet but great Christian leader just died.   Though I never heard him speak, I have read at least one of his books.John Stott  London is shifting quickly right now as John Stott is prepared to lay in rest.   He has given up this life for a much better one.  He will rest in peace because Jesus is his King.

God bless the soul of John Stott.

I have fond memories of his church, All Souls.  It is one of the great Anglican churches of all time.

Here are some quotes about his life.

The world famous evangelist, the Rev. Billy Graham, described him as “the most respected clergyman in the world today.”

John Stott has attended his local church, All Souls, Langham Place in London’s West End (www.allsouls.org), since he was a small boy. Indeed one of his earliest life memories is of sitting in the gallery and dropping paper pellets onto the fashionable hats of the ladies below! Many years later, and following his ordination in 1945, John Stott became assistant curate at All Souls and then, unusually, went straight on to become rector in 1950. He became rector emeritus in 1975, a position which he continues to hold, and he still preaches there several times each quarter.
