On a wooded site in Billy Graham’s home town, the Billy Graham Library will be dedicated in Charlotte, N.C., on May 31 and will open to the public June 5. The library and museum trace the life of America’s most famous evangelist.
The ceremony is expected to feature former Presidents George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton. The 88-year-old evangelist Graham is scheduled to come down from his home in the mountains and address the crowd of 1,500 invited guests.
If his fragile health allows him to make a now-rare public appearance, Graham’s message will echo the one his ministry hopes visitors take from the library: The glory should go to God rather than the lanky farm boy who preached the gospel around the world.
Visitors get a look at the old photos and crusade footage that fill the 40,000-square-foot library. For more information log onto http://www.bgea.com/BGLibrary_Index.asp
