Billy Graham Transfers Church Membership
Here’s a snippet from The Greenville News:
The Rev. Billy Graham isn’t able to make it to church much these days, but he has been enjoying the Sunday morning television broadcast from Spartanburg First Baptist for years, the pastor there told The Greenville News in 2006.
Now Graham, who has officially been a member of First Baptist of Dallas for decades, is transferring his membership to the Spartanburg church, according to Baptist Press, the Southern Baptist Convention’s news organization.
Frank Lockwood is the religion editor of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette. In a blog post entitled “Billy Graham has Barack Obama-Jeremiah Wright Moment,” Lockwood speculates that the 90 year-old evangelists decision to leave FBC Dallas for a church 90-miles away from his North Carolina home has ” less to do with geography than theology.”
