At age 87, the Reverend Billy Graham can no longer stride to the pulpit, and he uses a walker to get around. But a bronze statute to be unveiled by the Southern Baptist Convention will recall the evangelist in his prime. The figure of Graham will stand larger than life with a Bible in
one hand and arms outstretched before a giant cross. It's a tribute to the man who ministered privately to American presidents and preached the Gospel to millions in packed stadiums. The statue will be presented in June at the Southern Baptist Convention's annual meeting in Greensboro and then will be moved to Nashville for a permanent installation later this year.
