A week after Tim’s memorial service, I’m still reveling in the afterglow of its poignant beauty. And I’m also reflecting on the effects of the amazing era ushered in by Tim’s ministry. His work inspired so many New Yorkers to come to faith and so many others to renew and strengthen their faith. I was one of them.
My revitalized faith—and Tim’s Spirit-fueled encouragement—pushes me to seek shalom for New York and serve my neighbors in the city where God has planted us. As Christians, we know New York City—or any other city—is not our ultimate home. But we glorify God when we serve the community where He has placed us. I believe generations of Redeemer churchgoers will continue to embrace that idea, which gives me much hope for the future of Christianity in New York and the world.
This is Tim’s legacy that I treasure the most.
Church leaders are responding to the passing of televangelist and Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) founder Pat Robertson, who died on Thursday at 93.
As Christian Headlines previously reported, Robertson died on June 8 in his home in Virginia Beach. He launched CBN in 1960, which has since reached 200 nations and has been translated into 70 languages. He served as the host of the 700 Club from 1966 to 2021.
