Passing of John Stott

The blogosphere was full of tributes yesterday to John Stott, who passed away at 90.  I post this here in case some of you haven't heard.  My epitaph--"He gave evangelicals a good name."  He was missional before the word was invented.  He was a thinker who was informed and committed to truth however it came.  He was a preacher of excellence.

In reporting his passing on NPR, Barbara Bradley Hegarty stated that even though Stott was a "conservative Evangelical" he "could not be pigeon-holed".

"Of course not," I thought. "He was an Anglican."

Memory eternal!
