2019 – Sightseeing – Billy Graham Library – Charlotte, NC


I thoroughly enjoyed our visit the Billy Graham Library in Charlotte, NC. The Library takes visitors on an audio-visual journey of Billy Graham’s life from the time of his conversion until his death in 2018. He attended Wheaton College where he met and married a missionary’s daughter, Ruth Bell Graham. One room is dedicated to his wife Ruth and her many accomplishments as wife, mother and writer. There are movie clips from various crusades and many personal items from his years of ministry including what looks like the sound room where he recorded his radio broadcast, The Hour of Decision, produced from 1950 to 2016! Near the end of the tour we saw a wall mural by Thomas Kinkade named “The Cross”. In the final presentation of the tour we heard a short video of Billy Graham preaching the gospel message. At the end of the sermon, as “Just as I Am” is being sung, his son Franklin appears on video, encouraging those of us in the room to respond to that invitation. The overwhelming theme of the library continues Graham’s lifetime calling of leading people to Jesus.

Another unique find while traveling this summer. We stopped to use the Internet at the  Munising Schools Public Library while there I saw a card catalog that looked to be in use. On closer inspection I saw that it is a Seed Library. There are envelopes of seeds in the drawers with instructions on planting. They offer instructions for saving seeds to keep the Seed Library going. There is an instructional flyer on top of the catalog with websites that provide more information.
