John Stott (1921-2011)
I was saddened to hear of John Stott's passing this morning. Not only was John Stott an amazing man of God, a theologian and an evangelist, but he was a patron of A Rocha and a champion of Creation Care. Surely God is saying, 'Well done, my good and faithful servant.'
John Stott (1921-2011): 'My hope is that in the future, evangelical leaders will ensure that their social agenda includes such vital but controversial topics as halting climate change, eradicating poverty, abolishing armories of mass destruction, responding adequately to the AIDS pandemic, and asserting the human rights of women and children in all cultures. I hope our agenda does not remain too narrow.'
